El Mejor

El Mejor is Nicoya Peninsula’s best-kept secret. Discovered by Didier himself, this dive site will never have anyone else but Buceo Gavilana divers. You will basically be taken out by boat smack-dab to the middle of nowhere and stop. That’s all we can tell you.

 

Once under water, you will see some sand and some fish. Didier will get your attention, call you over, and then disappear. Intrigued, you will follow, and behold, EL MEJOR!

 

Surrounded by a ring of sand and hidden behind a “horseshoe” of sand, you will perceive a hardly noticeable hollow that you would have totally missed if not for your super guide. You slowly enter and are left in awe because before your eyes are sharks, rays, moray eels, amberjacks, wrasses, and rock lobsters all living together peacefully.

 

One of a kind site!
