Punta Sur (Devil’s throat)
This is a very impressive, deep wall dive that is best to be explored in two dives. The site’s name describes a narrow tunnel lined with red sponges, located inside the area’s largest coral mound. At 18m/60ft you can enter the cavern which gradually narrows, which is the opening of the “throat.” This takes you from 24m/80ft at a 45 degree angle, down to the deep blue exit at 40m/130 ft. The swim only last a few seconds but it is an incredible experience. Good buoyancy is essential in order to avoid damaging the coral. Once outside the “throat” another entrance leads to a chamber known as “Little Cathedral,” where light illuminates an impressive cross-shaped sponge. On top of the reef during your safety stop we are often entertained by a few Southern stingrays.
