Description: Enormously attractive, this site combines big gorgonians, sponges in variegated shapes and colors, large snappers (Lutjanus sp.), groupers (Epinephelus sp.), stingrays (Dasyatis sp.) and eagle rays (Aetobatus narinari). Quite often, reef sharks (Carcharhinus sp.) and nurse sharks (Ginglymostoma cirratum) roam the area.

Description: This zone has a very irregular bottom, with small caves, crevices and tunnels, large gorgonians and sea fans forming a massive boulder populated by schools of curious tarpon (Megalops atlantica), big parrot fish (Scarus sp.), queen angelfish (Holocanthus ciliaris),angelfish (Pomacanthus sp.) and a great variety of tiny coral fish.

Description: The coral bottom here is interrupted by sandy stretches. The biggest attraction is the presence of great barracudas (Sphyraena barracuda), several species of turtles, stingrays (Dasyatis sp.), and schools of grunts (Haemulon sp.), schoolmaster (Lutjanus apodus) and other coral fish species.

Description: A zone formed by large rocks of coral origin communicating through narrow passages at their base in which reef sharks (Carcharhinus sp.) make their way. There are also numerous groupers (Ephinephelus sp.), snappers (Lutianus sp.), several species of barjacks (Caranx ruber), horse-eyejacks (Caranx latus) and many medium-size coral fish.
