  • Go to small boat experience is unique, access from Mahahual is long and depending on the sea conditions may be worse but worth, they are about a couple of hours for the first spot to snorkel / dive. It is an expedition that takes you around the clock. The reef is huge, black coral you see mostly, sponges, coral, fire, etc. Wildlife many species of fish, rays, shark cat, snails... In the book hundreds of iguanas, crocodiles, many species of birds, etc. Lobster fishing camp is also primarily. It is necessary to mention that the place is a little dirty in the amount of garbage coming from offshore.

  • We visited the site in October, we knew we had to arrive early to do the tour. Preferably it is necessary to arrive a day earlier because he is needed to ensure a minimum of 6 people on the boat to be able to travel. The tour starts from 9-10 o'clock in the morning. I recommend the tour with Tito and René, its establishment is located in the Huachinando Street, almost just behind the Big Mamma restaurant. The reef is beautiful, you can see shark cat, rays, Barracuda, and many beautiful fish. Even prepared us a rich ceviche with fish fresh fish.

  • It is the second reef mas grande del mundo, and we have it in this country. It is an impressive place to dive, you can find release from small schools of fish to some types of shark harmless to man (Nodrissa), also a lot of coral, turtles, rays, if a little luck there is snorkeling or diving with dolphins in freedom. Even from the boat you see flying fish travel long distances in the air, as well as the dolphins playing beside your boat, something unforgettable for a lover of nature and marine life.
