The day we went for the la tortuga island snorkel excursion was a gorgeous weather day. However, there wasn't much to see when snorkeling and the beach was average. I was 4 months pregnant at the time and would not recommend the boat ride to anyone more that 3 mo pregnant or anyone with back problems. If you have motion sickness, forget it altogether. The ride was fast and rough, and that was on a day with perfect weather. Overall, if you are looking for a change in scenery, the la tortuga island may be a good option.
