Reviewed 14 May 2013

This area is now a lot busier than before, it used to be just
the El Mercato shopping area, but now a lot more smaller
shops outside have appeared

“FANTASTIC SNORKLING”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

A must have!! if you can make sure the boat stops for you to snorkel with the current....you get to see some amazing fish and the current pulls you slowly along the reef as if you are a bit like a turtle. Kids and adults will enjoy doing this for sure!
