We booked this tour through our hotel. It was 60 US dollars per adult and 45 for kids. We were quoted about 360 US dollars but if we attended meetIng we would receive 45% discount. It's a taxi drive to the aqua tours marina and waited for boat. The ride is about 40 minutes to the island and then you... More

Great afternoon to finish the day off after swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Discovery. I booked the VIP package and you have exclusive access to other pools, Jacuzzis and an upgraded lunch. All sorts to do here, something for everyone.

I loved this park but overly priced. go next door for $5 to Garrafon de Castilla. It's the same fish as there is not fence and fish are free to roam. bring corn flakes and go nuts!

Had a great time relaxing on the beach and ziplining. If you are looking for non stop go, go, go... this is not the place for you. Kick back, enjoy the waves and take a hike along the shore. It is so relaxing and my idea of a perfect day. Saw a little squid when snorkling. The reef is blocked... More

The water is pretty and calm the day our group stop here. So snorkling was easy but there wasn't much to see. Not too many fish, especially not the colorful ones. I found a Conch shell with an inhabitant in it. I returned it out into the ocean after showing it to our group and some kids on the shore.... More

I was diving. Mostly I liked the dive masters with CAREY DIVE CENTER who took us. The American gal who vacations/works part of the year there also contributed to our wonderful experience under the water. We saw a large turtle and vibrant coral reefs.

We went for the snorkeling. I was looking for a place with calm water, that was accessible without climbing in and out of a boat and lacked a guide yelling for me to follow him. Garrafon Park met all of that criteria. It was nice just floating along, but there is very little to look at. The reef is roped... More

This was a great place for the kids to try out snorkeling for the first time! It was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon when we weren't out swimming with the whale sharks! The iguanas were fun to watch :)
