Seven marine parks encircle the small island, protecting the natural resources for generations to come. El Buen Consejo is a massive Spanish galleon, sunk during the colonial years. You can see cannons and cargo still intact on the ship, a truly unique experience. There are also intentionally sunk wrecks to see, if you just can’t get enough.
The double reef system is a great place to find plenty of different species of coral, accompanied by typical, lovely Caribbean marine life. Go to the offshore cays for some pristine, untouched wilderness. Diving here is exceptional, so it’s best to vary your experiences, checking out a couple of islands.
Excellent visibility is the norm here and you won’t need a wetsuit during your dives either as the water and air temperature remain around the same throughout the year

Fly in or take a boat from a nearby island. Renting a car is highly recommended if you plan on exploring the island thoroughly, though roads are often in less than pristine condition.
