Fantastic awesome experience 100 pesos well spent . Rocks a real hazard beware. When can I go back? Rent equipment and guide from first stall after getting off water taxi. Which is an experience in its self. No need to take hotel excursion. Safe and lots of fun.

This seems to be nothing more than a concrete statue that was intentionally sunk for tourists and has no color to it or anything else I would say is special.

This is normally a free visit, but do to the Easter Holiday, some enterprising Mexicans decided to charge 100 pesos per person with snorkel gear and life jackets included. Statue has a rope attached so once on location, you can pull yourself down the 8 feet or so... More

This was a lot of fun to visit. There is a rope to help you get down if you're uncomfortable diving down. I wouldn't go on a snorkeling trip just to see this, but it was a cool addition to our snorkeling trip.

You can snorkel out from LAS GATAS BEACH to see this 400 year old statue in the bay...Easy swim for most people. WELL WORTH IT.

This underwater statue makes for a 'destination' while snorkeling at Las Gatas beach. Depending on water clarity, it is fun to see.
