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.
