Mochima National park is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. Once you take a boat to one of the small islands, you find yourself in paradise. Beautiful turquoise water, white sand beach, and tranquility. I had the opportunity to visit Mochima many...More

Even if visibility was not great on our second day at this park, it offers amazing diving locations and very nice beaches for non divers. In particular i recommend Puinare beach and the late night party of El Faro beach.
