Submerged Rock / Costa Rica

Submerged Rock

Submerged Rock is located at the southern part of the island, to the south of Alcyone dive site. It’s almost a vertical rock with a great number of cracks and breaks resembling a ladder by its form. The top rises a little bit above the water surface. There is an open-end cave, although it’s rather hard to swim via it because of strong currents.
