This beautiful area is amazingly clear and chock full of fish and wildlife. It is a wonderful brew of azure water, fish, rays, and sea mammals. Not to be missed.

We took an boat tour of the area and visited the national park. It was beautiful, with something to see everywhere you looked (fish, birds, and rock formations). I would highly recommend a visit.

I think it was Land and Sea Eco Tours? A US couple own it. The office was right on a corner. We also booked a second tour in Nopolo and that was they the hotel there. Both were excellent.
