I am sure this place is as beautiful as people describe it in the review. My husband and I were going to snorkel that day. I have snorkeled before and scuba dive! For some reason as the weather changed the currents got so strong that the undercurrent dragged me under and almost killed me ... I had to be rescued by another swimmer that was present as I could not get out of the water! Moreover, my husband was also struggling to a point he could not even rescue me at fear of drowning himself.
Unfortunately there are no flags notifying people of the danger and the status of the currents/waves. Since there are so many people/tourists that go there to snorkel that it would be a great idea that a person responsible to protect the corals would have the responsibility to set information of ocean conditions (red flag) and give newcomers advice and tips to stay safe, nit just to avoid the protected zone. This would be a great place for the hotel, authorities, country to have life saving equipment and a life guard on site ... 4 other people almost drowned the very next day according to our hotel staff who were horrified by our experience.
We write this review as two health care professionals hoping to ensure safety, not discourage snorkelling on this beautiful location. we hope this review encourages change to ensure that the goal of ZERO deaths happen at this site.
