Wonderful, though usually crowded. You can snorkel and see all sorts of fishes, manta rays etc. Take water shoes to avoid getting hurt with the corals.

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.
