Scuba Diving Near Isla Verde

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.

There is one dive operator, some dive shops, and a small number of interesting dive sites to choose from.
