Los Tuneles, Puerto Villamil

#Must See
Los Tuneles is known for snorkelling opportunities, packed with so much sea life it’s been compared to snorkelling in an aquarium. Take an hour-long boat ride to the site, where along the way you’ll likely see giant manta ray, sea turtles, and sea lions, as well as views of the coast. Once you reach the popular spot, use your snorkelling gear to explore a maze of lava tubes and marine life. You’ll likely be able to get up close to many animals, such as colorful angelfish, white-tipped reef sharks, and even penguins. Several tour companies offer excursions; do your research to select the right one.
