Take your time looking in the caves and crevices and you may find the slipper lobster. Bastard grunt shelter in the amphitheater. One of the highlights of these dives is seeing the yellow gorgonian fans waiting in the sand against the current. They also shelter tiny shrimp and snails that can easily be missed due to their tiny size.

Between the XVI and XVIII centuries the Greeks, Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans would sail through the area.  El Rio was a strategic place for them to anchor. Preferring to cut the line and lose the anchor then to be plundered by pirates that crossed these waters. This reef is home to stingrays, red hogfish, grouper, parrotfish and brown meager.
