    This is a place that you don't want to miss. The views, the beach and everything is awesome. You can heavy a relaxing day by the beach. They picked us up in our hotel and took us back aswell. Really worth what you pay for.

    It's more open water and jet skis. I think you can bring your own but it's not the snorkeling type of place. Never hurts to try though!
