The coral that I snorkeled over was being killed by all the anchors that are dropped on it every day during the season. I will say there are lots of fish for you to swim with ,as them feed them from the boats to keep them there. They need to do as other Countries have done and ban the use... More

This is a coral reef that comes to shore. Very cool stuff. Only about 15-20 feet deep and the guides are good.

We went hear as part of a pre booked excursion that took us on to Saturno Cave. The Cuban divers are very experienced and fit you out with equipment and life jackets before guiding you 100m or so out to the reef from the rocky beach. Access into the wate ris via a small ladder similar to a swimming pool... More

it was an amazing experience; the guides are excellent people and the cost is $10 CUC including the googles and flippers; It is close to the airport and Varadero; The food is cheap too.

Best snorkelling we have seen in a long time! Water was deep enough we didn't end up with scratched knees. Lots of fish to see!

This was one of our stops during the Jeep Safari tour. This was amazing! Unfortunately the day we went was quite wavy but there was still so much to see and enjoy! Our instructor was really good.

We went as part of an excursion. Not ideal! Hire a taxi for early morning and arrive before daytime tours start. Waves are calmer and water is clearer. There is a small operation that will provide guidance on the reef and equipment rentals for $10pesos. And you can stay all day. There is a restaurant and massage tables on the... More

Took a cab to the beach, if they stop by the Travel spot tell your cabby to go 1 minute further to the other entrance. At the Tourist spot you need to access the water tru the coral but if you go to a bit further it's sand and easy access. You can rent snorkeling gear there and there is... More

You can reach it by car, and it was very windy, rough day when we went. Danny was very good at choosing the right channel to get out to the reef. there are quite a few fishes closer to shore, before the reef, but no live corals in the shallows. we brought our own snorkeling gear, but they have equipment...
