The fish are so friendly. They come right up to you so make sure to bring your waterproof cameras. Don't forget to look up. The Blue-Footed Booby birds are hang out on he rocks.

Water was calm and snorkeling was a blast. We swam through the cave and saw many beautiful sea life. Make sure you take a boat ride to Los Arcos

So many colorful fish and rocks, the water is a perfect temperature for snorkeling, watch the currents as you need to stay off the rocks. Get an underwater camera to remember the beauty.

There is a path down to the beach close to the local bus stop and plenty of people offering any service you might like including a boat and snorkelling gear to get out to Los Arcos.
