As long as it is not so croud, it is a nice place to go but otherwise, the amount of tourists could easily be overwhelming... It is another place in San Andrés where you have to pay for everything.

It is a well-worth trip. It is absolutely beautiful. The water is warm and the view is breath-taking. There were not too many fish to see though.

There is no question that this place is naturally beautiful and that the fish and the clear water is amazing but what good is all that is no one can enjoy it? This place is so crowded that every one is essentially walking on top...More

For less than 30 buck, you can buy a rockie snrk beside Sandqich Qbano, the best place without doubt, la piscinita, you can feed fishes from you own hand, Acuario is nice but both are not with colored coral.
