Fair play to the guy/guide he held my hand... More

350 Meter swim out and a 5 minute photo OP (10 CUC for a picture) then a 350 meter swim back. Very dangerous entry and exit to the water.

You need to go here and go snorkling,by far the highlight of the whole trip. I was nervous in the beginning but all the fish and the views under the water were amazing.

It was part of Rio Canimar Tour. Our tour were there first. Nice experience, staff very helpful and nice. Some shop's, bar, and washrooms where you have to pay for it. Staff expect tips. Highly recommend it.

My friend went snorkeling and enjoyed it. I just went swimming. Beach is all coral and there is a area to get changed. Or just sit by the bar and have a drink.

There are many fish to see in the area that are quite used to people being around so don't dart away when you come... More

Bring your camera! Don't buy from guy taking pics with fish in the water. Paid ten CUC's and he took pic when I put my head under. No effort no direction. Rushed isn't even the word for it. Brought wrong picture to the resort. Just showing how fast he was doing it and writing it down. And the pic I... More

Disliked that they made you rent and wear a life jacket. Also if you wanted a snorkelling guide that was extra.
