There is no question that this place is naturally beautiful and that the fish and the clear water is amazing but what good is all that is no one can enjoy it? This place is so crowded that every one is essentially walking on top...More

It was a great experience, very joyful. The best thing was definetely swimming with stingreys, they are big and so soft. You are going to need your snorkel because there is a huge coral reef where you can find a lot of different kind of...More

For less than 30 buck, you can buy a rockie snrk beside Sandqich Qbano, the best place without doubt, la piscinita, you can feed fishes from you own hand, Acuario is nice but both are not with colored coral.
