We saw seals, sea turtles, rays, beautiful fish and iguanas swimming here. We brought our own snorkel gear and came in the early mornings and afternoons- I'd highly recommend checking this spot out!

One of those places that is so close and obvious, that you might miss it! Lethargic iguanas and silly sea lions litter the boardwalk you must traverse to access this gem..if you aren't careful stepping over them you will step on them (please don't!!!). You...More

We loved Concha de Perla. It's a small lagoon starting in the place justifully called "Iguana crossing" on Isabela island. Indeed, there are a lot of iguanas crossing the road near the sunset, where the boardwalk begins. Then you'll walk along the lagoon and see...More

The water was not that clear and no coral in the area. I only saw a few types of fish out there. Not that impressed.

Good free place to snorkel and have a good time. We saw sea lions, big rays, turtles and fish. You can rent some gear yourself and go there.

Short walk from main pier. The walkway itself is lovely and was filled with sea lions each time that we went. The snorkeling from the end of the small pier was amazing.

I didn’t personally do any snorkelling, but lots of people were. The clear sea means you can see much of the sea life from the little jetty and don t even need to go into the water. The board walk down to the water is...More
