Get up close and personal with marine life when you snorkel at Concha de Perla. Cross over a wooden bridge through a mangrove forest, keeping an eye open for iguanas and other land animals as you approach the lagoon. A large rock formation in front of the lagoon keeps the waters here especially calm, making this area great for children and those new to snorkeling. The clear water makes it easy to see the marine life such as sea lions, sharks, many types of fish, turtles, and more.

  • We were in Concha de Perla twice. The first time we saw turtles and penguins! (It seems that taxi drivers are unusual), the second time a group of eagle rays and underneath was seen white-spinal reef sharks. Very nice!

  • Beautiful mangrove on arrival in Isabela, you don't need to pay for a tour to dive and see turtles, colorful fish and sea lions sleeping along the way which is a wooden trail through the vegetation. We definitely had a wonderful afternoon.

  • Amazing place for swimming with snorquel! Lots of fishes and safe if you're not that good at swimming. Rocky ground so swimming shoes are highly recommended.
  • Just off the dock! Saw more animals and birds here than anywhere else.
  • The wonderful thing of this place begins just low of the boat. On the dock there are sea iguanas and sea lions. You can snorkel and see other species such as turtles and even penguins depending on the time of year. There are several places where you can buy empanadas and drinks.
  • Awesome snorkeling spot when in Isabella. Located very close to the town. Lots of fishes, starfishes and some sharks and turtles. Visibility is very good on the sides next to the rocks, a lot less in the middle. Try to get a suit as the water temperature is pretty cold. And come during low tide as there is a lot more to see. Hands off one of the best snorkeling spots on the island.
  • Pretty lagun. Hit or miss on the wild life sightings. Water can be a bit chillier than on the beach.
