A great spot for swim

Clear water, quiet location. The place is heading down south. Tourist would usually stop. Bring your snorkeling gear for a swim with the fishes.

Isn’t the best tour in San Andres, but it’s very beautiful. A lot of fishes to look underwater and place to jump, however “ el acuario “ is but better and beautiful.

Go there if you want an inside-an-aquarium experience... but because people feed the fishes.. so no really natural... and to make it worse, they do it with bread, which causes them serious deseses as they cannot process it. If you want a lovely and more natural experience, just a bit norther or souther... little beaches with no tourists and yet... More

This place was a must to visit in San Andres, but when we arrive there it was like a amusement park: trampoline, "gusanito", tobogán... very crowded to me... 0 local, 100% tourist. 4.000 pesos to enter. In this island you can find a lot of better places to dive and snorkeling...

Really, threre's no much to see on this place. To begin with, you can't go in even with a bottle of water, the guy on the front will make you leave the water there or throw it out. Once you get in, the staff that rent the life jacket is quite rude and the material they have is many times... More

Pretty nice place for snorkeling. Entrance is 4.000 pesos per person. Gear can be rented there. They ask for an additional deposit. Kind man at the entrance will give you bread to feed to the fish. Bar personnel (two ladies and a young man) is moody, not motivated, slow in service and not really helpfull or kind. Ignore them and... More

We spend two beautiful days in this amazing place! You can rent all necessary amenities for the snorkeling and discover sea world. I remember colorful fishes and statue under the water. Also they sell delishes cocktails in good price cheapest in the island. My favorite one was pinacolada without alcohol.

Interesting visit for a quick stop. You will pay 4 pesos per person but it worths the visit. Staff could be nicer and more helpful
