Scuba Diving in Cuba, Caribbean

Dive Site: El Paraiso Perdido (the Lost Paradise )

Location: Maria la Gorda, Cuba

Description: Wall

Depth: 30 metres + (100 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)

Rating: *****

An awesome dive! So many big fish! Another wall dive, but there were so many more fish than at the other sites, possibly because this is one of the furthest sites from the dive Center. We began the dive by passing through an undercut in the reef to get to the wall which emerged at about 18 metres. Immediately we saw huge shoals of jacks, tuna and a lot of barracuda. We did a few more swim-throughs as we traversed the wall, before climbing up to go onto the shallow reef topping the wall. Away from the wall a stingray was swimming along before settling on the sand. It allowed me to swim pretty near to it before it reared up and swam directly beneath me. There was an abundance of reef fish at this site as well making for a staggeringly good dive.
