Scuba Diving in Costa Rica: What will you see under water at Casa Chameleon?

Last week, we gave you tips for staying above the water in our post about surfing in Costa Rica. This week, we want to take you on an underwater excursion and show you why scuba diving in Costa Rica should be on your must-do list. You already know that the country is one of the richest in the world in terms of biodiversity, but remember that some of the unique animal and plant species can only be found underwater!

There are numerous diving points between Mal Pais and Playa Hermosa that offer scuba diving for all experience levels, and our staff is happy to help you plan the diving trip that best suits you. Once you’re beneath the surface, you’ll find large schools of colorful fish including angelfish, porcupinefish, and needlefish. As you head deeper into the ocean, you’ll encounter moray eels, manta rays, hawksbill turtles (an endangered species), and whitetip sharks. During certain times of the year, you may even find yourself swimming alongside humpback whales!

For the more adventurous scuba divers, an excursion to Tortuga Island may be in store. The island is known for its white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and huge volcanic rock formations, and it’s just an hour from Casa Chameleon. After your dive, you can kick back and relax on the beach or go hiking and explore the island.

Guests who are enjoying a romantic vacation or are on your honeymoon in Costa Rica, make note that it’s worth leaving your private villa with plunge pool for this underwater adventure. It’s been said that the best way to observe a fish is to become a fish, so go ahead – dive in!
