We started in Zone A of Hol Chan Marine Reserve, and it was amazing! It was the second day of our trip in San Pedro, and even though it had been raining the entire day before the visibility was still great. You could tell where the freshwater from the rain and runoff was floating on the top of the ocean as we did get some more rain that morning. It did make the visibility not 100% but it was kind of neat to see how it took some time for the water to blend. And you didn't have to dive down far to see everything. We saw sting rays, eagle rays, a nurse shark, a barracuda, a very bright green eel, and loads of other fish. Definitely one of my favorite snorkeling sites so far. Next we went to Zone D, also known as shark ray alley. This was a bit of a disappointment... Our guide did not bait the water as some other tours were doing and I did not see a single nurse shark. I did see a few stingrays there, but the visibility was very poor and not seeing any sharks was awful. As we were leaving (already on the boat) we saw another boat baiting the sharks and they were literally everywhere. Before you choose a dive company be sure that they bait the sharks!! You may be disappointed if you don't.
