  • Of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! the scenery is spectacular, unique and unforgettable experience. The sea is beautiful, its colors adorn all the horizon, Cano crab offers a look at the vastness, is simply beautiful. You can swim, see the multicolored fish, sea turtles, relax on the dock, walk to the mirador, bird watching and lose yourself in paradise. A place unique and magical!

  • We went kayaking from coconut bay bordering the mangrove. You can enter the lagoon by a channel between the mangroves. From there you can go to the keys of the 3 brothers where they nest frigates. From there you can go to cayo cazon where snorkeling is fabulous.
