 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): This cave is crowed with shrimps, that hide here during the day.

When you aproach the cave, you will be flanked by some groupers that wait for the divers to go into the cave and light the shrimps, so they could eat them.

Also, near the cave there is a branch of orange coral.

Comentarios a la inmersión - En mi opinión solo merece la pena por decir que hemos bajado a 42 metros.
Es necesario realizar un buen trecho nadando por la superficie antes de iniciar la inmersión, y aun así solo dispondremos de unos 5 minutos para ver la cueva. Tampoco me parece recomendable entrar mas de cuatro a la vez en la cueva, por lo que si buceamos en grupo el tiempo disponible es aun menor.
Y por cierto, apenas quedan ya gambas pero si es posible encontrar algún mero.
