The best holiday experience by far! Crystal clear water and lovely weather. We were able to go on the slide and drop into the sea which was very fun. Can't wait to go back.

This is an ok place to spend the day, if you have sufficient days in San Andres. The fee is 5,000 pesos (less than 2 dollars). There is local food and a few other rustic attractions within the place.

Almost all touristy places on San Andres are like this place. You pay to get in, the employees ask at least 2 times if you actually paid, you can not bring your own drinks/ food and it attracks mass tourism like crazy. Included in the...More

Yes, it is a place where you can go with kids, if they know how to swim because iti is deep. They have life vests if I remember correctly (or you can bring your own and snorkel equipment) and you can see a lot of fish... More
