This is a beautiful place. We went snorkeling for 10 CUC which was a great activity. The guys that run snorkeling at this place are great and very helpful. A must go to place while in Varadero. The same trip with a puck and drop from the hotel costs 36 CUC.

We went here as a stop of the Yumuri Jeep Tour. It was so much fun! We saw plenty of fish of all colors and sizes, and just as many jellyfish. The water was calm, warm, and clear. The guide was fantastic and was very good at showing us where to go and where to look. He even let me... More

A man works there and told us we would need to pay him to take us out snorkeling. That would not be needed. It looked cool, we would go next time if we ever go to this erea again.

Awesome snorkeling at this beach. Definitely worth a visit. Bring your own gear and go to the public beach. Lots of fish.

Went with my family. I'm a diver but this was there first time. Instructor did minor teaching and then off we went. Shallow and great channels to go through. Turned into a 55 min coral dive and we'll worth the 70 cuc each.
