4 divers took the opportunity to do a night dive in Playa Chica bay, also known as Pila de la Barrilla. It takes its name from the custom of locals washing their clothes with soap obtained from saltwort plant.
The beach and bay at Playa Chica are perfect for divers who swim out from here to enjoy the breathtaking underwater scenery including the Shrimp Cave, manta rays and sunken wrecks.
