If you are a walls lover, then Pared Verde is a place you shouldn't miss while diving in Playa. At the beginning you'll find small walls divided by sandy areas, as you advance through the reef you'll find the main wall with a spectacular coral formation full of large and small marine life. It is pretty common to see sharks cruising this wall alongside the typical marine life of the Caribbean Sea. At three quarter of your dive you can start your ascend at a chimney which you can penetrate. The current could be strong some days.

This famous wall is very different in formation from the classical endless drop off reef. Pared Verde has sections of walls which are split by sloping hills of sand. Ask the boat captain to drop you off on the southern end of the reef, and descend straight to the bottom keeping the reef to your left. At first you will find smaller walls which are divided by sandy areas. Further north along the reef the diver will reach the longer stretch of wall. The spectacular coral formations are full of large and small marine life. Be alert for spiny lobsters, king crabs, turtles, sting rays and sharks that may be swimming along the reef. After approximately 3/4 of the dive you will find a cavern with a chimney which exits at the top plateau of the reef, where you can start your ascent to the surface. Be aware that at times there is a strong current at Pared Verde.
