Following the slope just off the beach of Los Cajanos farther down, you will come to bizarre metal piece, the torn off wing of a small airplane. It is the wing of a Piper 28-140, which dropped into the ocean as a result of an engine breakdown in 1988, the pilot was rescued. Over the years the inside of the wing became monopolized by communities of crayfish, sea urchins and anemones. Still farther down again are sea fans. The crash of this plane has given us the only wreckage into which you can dive. Unfortunately there is only one wing and one tail unit accessible. It is a wonderful dive with sea fans, over fields of brown garden eels with a closing ascent along a bizarre steep slope. Shoals of Canary damselfish partly darken the sky.
