  • Beautiful experience for having echo snorkeling for the first time, shame that had much algae in beaches not so in the area of corals

  • A place is very strategic for you spend all your money on its facilities. We went with an excursion ($140R per capita) is quite far from home thus were an hour and a half away out at 5 in the morning by the issue of the tide. We arrived at the parrachos which is a sort of club where you just get a card you give so you upload there all your expenses incurred at the club. Breakfast is free, but prior to the breakfast area lurk you with sales/rentals of Gopro, photos in water, oxygen tubing for diving etc. After breakfast you must walk through the beach to the barcasa which is in the middle of the water, and from there take you 7 Km in to snorkel. Pretty good experience, but the lunch is not included and you can eat there, only being a place so far and located only 20 km radius is half-Corral

  • Are you going by boat to the middle of the sea diving in the coral reefs or to snorkel or air balloon before you go see the clean of the tide the ride occurs only at low tide. Recommend going on smaller boats, after the tour and lunch in common eh houses where the ride.
