  • It is a good choice to go to "snorkel" in family. (E) a small island which is 2 kilometers from the coast. It has different beaches to visit and its main attraction are the corals. I recommend you bring your aquatic camera as instructors there charge you up to 400 pesos to give you photos which you can you do them. There are several restaurants to eat, that we went the food was not anything bad, but not great. I also recommend lead blocker due to this very strong sunlight.
