It is exciting jump from 3 - 4 meters high into deep blue waters. The amount of different fishes that you can see there is unbelieveable. Definitely if you are going to San Andres, you can't miss visit La Piscinita.

But you have to get away from the crowd only too happy to swim among the hundreds of fish fed with bread!!! We went swimming further away and were lucky to soon be in deep waters and to see nice colored corals and beautiful fish, much nicer than at Acuario.

We visited in April 2014 and had a great time here. We had rented a golf cart and wanted to explore around the island. Our daughters were ages 6 & 9.

The cooperativa sells this excursion even on a day with rough sea. They let us off with several 100 people on a crammed sandbank size of 1/2 a football field. Waves rolling over the sandbank, all your stuff gets wet. Dozens of sellers and renters of chairs, plastic bags, plastic shoes, snorkels, food etc. will hassle you at all times.... More

this is a great place to snorkel without going way off shore . within feet of shore you can see a variety of fish and the price is minimal

If you don't know how to swim, you can do the aquanaut$, it's a great option to go to the bottom $$!

You can snorkel there, but you can do it at the whole west coast. Avoid visit this place, manager and staff are rude with visitors. rather visit other places in the same area with more friendly people, those guys there don´t look happy.

Imagine a big acquarium where you may swim among it: it's this place! Crystal clear water, an unforgettable place.
