  • Left with Eagle Ray Tour for a day of snorkeling, we enjoyed this exceptional place, into two parts: the first around the main island, to observe species of reef, whose spectacular barracudas, followed by a lunch on the same island; the second part a little further around the fishing grounds, where we swim with turtles, sharks and rays very closely! Really to concentrate on compared to places closer and very pretty as Laughing Bird, but of less interest.
