The name of this particular dive spot comes from a species of fish that can be found here in large schools, namely snappers. The main characteristic of this dive spot is its circular overhang, which is populated by the aforementioned schools of snappers (in Spanish, "pargo").

Cueva del Pargo has very little current, and with its maximum depth of 10 meters, it is an ideal dive site for beginner divers.

Besides snappers, divers can find here crabs, lobsters, shrimps, seahorses, various types of both hard and soft corals. If they are lucky they can come across stingrays and turtles.

Sea Robin Cozumel

          After diving Cozumel for over 20 years, Allen and his wife Robin decided they needed to own a local dive operation in Cozumel. Having dove with Eduardo for several years, the three of them hatched a plan to start an operation that would provide divers with the best possible diving experience on the island. All avid divers, they knew what they wanted; small fast boats, top notch Dive Masters, the ability to dive any of the dive sites, and a certain level of creature comforts. Sea Robin wants divers to enjoy their dive vacation both on and off the boat. That is why they thoroughly rinse and dry dive gear at the end of each day, and set it up before divers get back on the boat the next day. They always have towels on the boat to keep one warm during the one hour surface interval between dives. Their surface intervals are usually on beaches, but on occasion, they will interval on the boat and go look at the star fish near the inlet.
