  On the way to the dive-site
by Lodestar

The area is great for scuba-diving. Amazing world underwater. And it is relativelt cheap even compared to South-America, not to mention the rest of the world. If you are there, you should definately try diving - the most amazing experience! The best place to go - a nearby village of Taganga.

Equipment: All the dive-shops rent equipment if you don't have your own. You can just take a small-course (2 dives with perliminary tarining for around 80 000 pesos), or if you have your licence then the price is the same for renting equipment and a boat-trip to the dive-site, or you can take a full AOWD course for around 350 000 pesos. anyways it's definately worth the cost!

Directions: Taganga
Theme: Boating/Sailing

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
