Are you ready for an unforgettable underwater adventure? Just 25 miles south of Marina Vallarta lies El Chimo, a hidden gem waiting to be explored. Nestled in front of a charming fishing village, El Chimo marks the southernmost point of the bay and offers an unparalleled diving experience.

Leave the snorkelers far behind on this excellent dive. Located about 26 miles south of Puerto Vallarta, this site abounds with fish.  The floor has fantastic pinnacles, rising from a plateau called Torrecillias, and amazing columns, called Las Iglesias, like supports on an ancient cathedral.  Many divers do this site more than once on their vacation because there is so much area to cover - more than a quarter-mile across. 

The light dances off the rocks, creating a kaleidoscope of colors that will leave you in awe. It's a dream come true for underwater photographers and adventure seekers alike.
