San Clemente Reef is a beginner diver's dream, with shallow depth between 10 meters and 15 meters and little current.

As it is located between the Yucab Reef and the Tormentos Reef, San Clemente shares plenty of similarities with these two dive sites. Divers can encounter here spotted moray eels, butterflyfish swimming in pairs, groupers, snappers, grunts, scorpionfish, angelfish, seahorses hidden in the grass, damselfish, cowfish, eagle rays, filefish.

If they are lucky enough, divers can spot here parrotfish and barracudas.

This dive spot has a mostly sandy bottom with coral outcrops and patches.

Most divers who come here choose to wear short wetsuits.
