From the small harbour a boardwalk leads through the mangroves to a small wooden platform, from where you can step into the water to see fishes, and if you are lucky: pinguïns. It is a nice walk, the seals sometimes block your way over the boardwalk and it leads to a nice water to swim

Go there in the early moning, then you will see much more then in the afternoon. Nice quiet lagoon to snorkel, but no beach.

Absolute highlight of my trip was swimming with the sea lions. They performed for my underwater camera like pros!

October water is a little cold for this South Florida girl, but we had a half wetsuit and it worked well.

Concha de Perla is a gem. We went snorkeling there three times during our stay on Isabela, and each time we saw totally new and fantastic sea life from just a short walk or taxi ride from our hostel. the sealion pups like to play in the sheltered cove here in the morning. It is actually pretty deep here, so if you swim out over the middle you can often see rays and other such sandy-bottom lovers. There is a neat place near where it connect to the harbor to swim through a collapsed lava tunnel, where you can see lots of corral growing on the sides of the rock and plenty of fish. We didn't see turtles or iguanas here, but other people at our hostel did the same day we went but at a different time. And it's free!
