Diving Colombia articles, reviews, and reports from Undercurrent

Diving Colombia Overview

Two islands, while under the Colombian flag, are less than 75 miles off the coast of Nicaragua and have a strong Caribbean flavor. They do not pose the travel risks of mainland Colombia and you can reach them from Costa Rica. You may find good diving, though some operators may make no effort to take you to it.
