Palancar Caves

There are huge pinnacles that were formed close together in this area, creating a dense coral mass with a maze of swim throughs, tunnels and caves.  This caverns allow enough light to provide a safe passage and is a great place for wide angle photo opportunities.  This dive begins at a large sand bank that slopes down through one of the many canyons that will bring you to the edge of the wall at 24m/80ft.  Turtles are very common around this area and Spotted eagle rays can be seen swimming through these structures more often than not. Gorgonians and sea fans are attached to the ceilings and sway in the moderate current.  Towards the top of the reef you will find schools of Blue tang, Four-eyed butterflyfish, and many others as you make your ascent.
