A beautiful place to snorkel in really clear turquoise water. We came in our own boat and snorkeled all over the area. There is a cost associated with coming ashore at Crab Cay. You can snorkel with turtles there.

17,500COP per person per day for permit. Worth it for the snorkeling and climb up to the top for a great view. You need a boat to get there (too far to swim!). Most of the fish seem to hang out under the pier.

Maybe it was not the right time of the year but the pictures on the internet tell lies. It was nothing like it, looked like a regular beach water, nothing impressive and surrounding are is a bit shady aside from the hotel.
