The Aquarium dive site at María La Gorda

"El Acuario"

depth range:26 feet

features: coral line submerged 6m deep , great and amazing variety of fish of all size and colors.

This dive site was a good opportunity to look at the reef fish in detail, rather than being on the hunt for the bigger stuff and with shoals of sergeant majors, chromis, tangs, snapper, goatfish, lobsters, large crabs and trumpetfish, there was plenty to take in.

A very aptly named site that was a relaxing dive. Because of the patchy reef, the sheer numbers of reef fish and the shallow depth between 3-5m, you could really believe that you were swimming inside a very large fish tank. Amongst the sea fans and sponges there were a few flamingo tongues on the gorgonians and an arrow crab attempting to hide. In the distance a 2 metre long Nassau grouper was lurking.

Welcome to my site dedicated to María La Gorda International Diving Center. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research and supplying some of the photographs.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd which has a direct contract with the current hotel operator.

Best wishes for
