“Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Boat taxi was easy. Police presence made it safe and carefree. Snorkeling at Coral beah was really neat. Get a guide that knows where to go and what to look for. The food and drinks are plentiful and delicious. We had a blast.

“Take a boat there on your own!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We took a tour here that we booked through our hotel for 475 pesos per person. I would recommend going to the dock where you can get a boat over to the island yourself! It's way cheaper and you can figure out everything to do there without a guide. Our package included snorkeling (but you can rent the gear yourself, which we still had to pay for separately), lunch (which was ok-- i would have rather picked a restaurant there myself) and seeing the crocodiles by the dock where you leave from (which you can totally check out on your own). The snorkeling is really good! Bring crackers so you can feed the fish and they will swarm around you! They are beautiful! The water is calm and warm.

“Nice coral reef snorkelling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Go to the coral side to snorkel. Booze prices vary at each place so shop around. Lots of pelicans at the boat launch, bring camera.
