  • Concha de Perla is a lovely little spot close to town for a swim and a snorkel - it's not the best, you'll only see a few fish and possibly turtles, but with the proximity to town it's great if you just fancy a swim and a cool off. Of course, it also costs nothing, so that's good!!
  • This is a good free place. A boardwalk brings you down to the ocean where you will likely step over iguanas and seals. You can snorkel in the water but I'd highly recommend having a body suit as it's cold.
  • Great to cool down on a hot day, nice walk through the trees to get there.
  • a little nice place for snorkeling not much more
  • Fantastic
