Scuba Diving in Costa Rica
Dive Site: Punta Argentina
Location: Playas del Coco, Costa Rica
Description: Volcanic rock
Depth: 28 metres (92 feet)
Visibility: 12 metres (40 feet)
Exotic marine life is in abundance at this dive site in the Gulf of Papagayo. A volcanic rock tapers down to a depth of 85ft with an unbelievable variety of macro marine life as well as the frequent turtle, spotted eagle ray and white tip reef shark encounters.

This is always one of my favorite sites as there is always something new to see. Don't forget to look for small stuff I saw a harlequin shrimp on last trip.
Southern stingray, tiger snake eel, zebra moray, puffers, thermocline. 10m viz. 24m depth. 3/2mm wetsuit. Rays jumping out of the water on the way to site plus turtles. Very promising site, always something new! Highly recommended.
