    If you like snorkeling, it is probably the best place on the Pacific coast to the Panama. Days at the start of Santa Catalina are organized at the price of $ 60 for the boat + €20 / pers for the reserve. The seabed is not exceptional and sometimes the water is murky but you will see even when the main species of fish in the region (fish Parrot, surgeon, labre, chest, Angel, ladies...), and also a few harmless sharks. I advise you to book the day via your hotel, prices are the same, but the service is definitely better. We had a tour operator from the street to S.C and we were very disappointed by the service. 2 young people who have been with us (we were on board 10) themselves are absolutely didn't we. Minimum explanations, difficulty to get back aboard after diving, time really tight and especially a non total respect for the environment! They took advantage of our presence to poach some bivalves while the site is "protected". Apart from this unfortunate disappointment, the Islands are beautiful, you will make photos postcards!
