This dive was with the Dive with Cristina company. This dive company was wonderful and we had a great dive of this reef. Not to be missed.

not one of our favorite dive locations; seems like too many divers and snorkelers so usually pick another reef

We had a great time snorkeling at this reef. It was a beautiful spot to see a lot of coral and stingrays. The area is full of all kinds of fish.

This is a beautiful reef but on the day we dove it windy surface conditions had stirred up the sediment a bit reducing visibility. It was still an impressive reef with huge coral mounts.

This park offers excellent snorkeling and swimming. There is a fee to enter the park. It's close to the hotels and piers.
