We visited in April 2014 and had a great time here. We had rented a golf cart and wanted to explore around the island. Our daughters were ages 6 & 9. For most of the time, we were the only people there. Another family arrived as we were leaving. Gorgeous water. Tons of fish. You don't even need snorkel gear... More

The cooperativa sells this excursion even on a day with rough sea. They let us off with several 100 people on a crammed sandbank size of 1/2 a football field. Waves rolling over the sandbank, all your stuff gets wet. Dozens of sellers and renters of chairs, plastic bags, plastic shoes, snorkels, food etc. will hassle you at all times.... More

this is a great place to snorkel without going way off shore . within feet of shore you can see a variety of fish and the price is minimal

If you don't know how to swim, you can do the aquanaut$, it's a great option to go to the bottom $$!

You can snorkel there, but you can do it at the whole west coast. Avoid visit this place, manager and staff are rude with visitors. rather visit other places in the same area with more friendly people, those guys there don´t look happy.

Imagine a big acquarium where you may swim among it: it's this place! Crystal clear water, an unforgettable place.

This is a great area for snorkelling and scuba diving. The coast is rocky and with no beach with sand, but there is a stair to get into the water.

take into account that they don't let you bring your own food. If you plan on taking food, keep it away from the view of the man on the door. They collect a small fee and give some bread. Bring your own snorkel, you won't regret it

This is a natural pool in the 7 colours sea of San Andres. If you are brave enough to jump from a 7 meters, you will have a lot of fun. The water was clear and clean with no pollution or litter whats so ever, no to mention that the location is beautiful and very tropical.
