Dive if you don't know how to swim!

If you don't know how to swim, you can do the aquanaut$, it's a great option to go to the bottom $$!

You can snorkel there, but you can do it at the whole west coast. Avoid visit this place, manager and staff are rude with visitors. rather visit other places in the same area with more friendly people, those guys there don´t look happy.

Imagine a big acquarium where you may swim among it: it's this place! Crystal clear water, an unforgettable place.

This is a great area for snorkelling and scuba diving. The coast is rocky and with no beach with sand, but there is a stair to get into the water.

It's a lovely place to swim and relax, but horribly expensive - espeically for snorkel/goggle hire. We saw many fish swimming and the jump point is pretty cool.

San Andres is full of places to enjoy but the best places to enjoy a swim are located on the west coast of the island. Less than a kilometer down the road from the West View Complex is La Piscinita (the natural swimming pool). There...More
