Bring your snorkel and mask, water shoes. We saw so many fish and sea lions, and even a penguin! Take time to enjoy the walk on the boardwalk built through the mangroves. It's gorgeous, and free!

This is an easy site to visit to do some snorkeling. Nothing exceptional about it, but easy to get to and decent snorkeling.

Concha de Peria was an excellent place to snorkel and also close to seals basking nearby. A swimming beach within walking distance after you finish snorkeling. Very clear water both snorkeling and swimming.

Go early in the morning. If you follow the mangroves to the left, up to the reef you will definitely see green sea turtle(s) plenty of fish, octopuses ,sea lions, marine iguanas, sharks (that are shy).You don't need a guided tour for that.
