I visited the Island of Espíritu Santo with the Company Mar y Aventuras Last november and i have to say it is the most beautiful island i have ever been. The contrast of desert with the turquoise waters... harsh enviroment with an extraordinary diversity of sea life makes this place so special.

A wonderful day trip to explore the bountiful sealife on and around Isla Espiritu Santo. We've been multiple times but it is always different and never disappointing.
