Chimo is a spectacular dive site about 26 miles from Puerto Vallarta along the southern coast of Banderas Bay. Here the ocean floor has distinct and interesting formations. Torrecillas is an undersea plateau from which a series of separate pinnacles rise like trees uprooted to reach light.
Las Iglesias is a line of columns that also rise straight from the sea bed as if supporting an ancient, sunken cathedral. Huge schools of fish, healthy invertebrates and Giant Manta encounters are typical for Chimo. The rock formations and corals are so impressive, that this make it one of our favorite dive sites.
