While there is access to the sea from Isla Verde, it is not necessarily an ideal setting for diving.  Snorkeling is more common here, and visitors will usually give that a go before signing up for an excursion that will take them elsewhere.  Condado has an easy beach dive site, but more advanced divers will head elsewhere.

You'll find two dive operators, some dive shops, and a small number of dive sites in the area.
