  • Nice little day trip for the family. Great authentic Mexican Seafood, but overpriced. Snorkeling, Banana boats, vendors, massage, The boat ride over is short and easy. 
  • Great snorkeling, food. Go to second stop in water taxi. Back bay, 75 feet away is for snorkeling. From where you get off taxi the beach is great for swimming no waves, pure sand. 
  • At least 3 lovely beaches, gentle waves, a great place for families and beginning snorkelers. And a gentle 9 minute boat ride. Several restaurants.
