Create an itinerary including Playa Carlos Rosario
Escape the crowds of other nearby beaches with a visit to Playa Carlos Rosario, a remote area with excellent opportunities for snorkeling. You'll immediately notice the colorful barrier reef that surrounds the shore seemingly on all sides; head south of the beach along the cliffs for truly spectacular snorkeling with biodiverse marine life. Do exercise caution, since water taxis and powerboats use the channel adjacent to the shore. If snorkeling isn't for you, take advantage of the secluded nature of this beach to tuck into a book with a refreshing drink.

  • The trail starts at the Flamenco Beach entry booth. Go on the outside of the parking lot fence until you see a tsunami zone sign and a gate with a chain. Go thru the gate and follow the single file walking gpath for 25 mins. Not too steep, but your bare legs will get brushed by several plants. The reward?: rays, turtles, fish and corals. Fabulous. The reef is only 20ft to 50ft off shore. No need to go further out - except to look for turtles and rays in the sea grass. Look at other reviews to see where to enter the reef.
  • Definitely the spot to go for snorkeling. If you're willing to make the 15-20min "hike" to the beach (don't forget to bring plenty of water/food, no-one will sell you any there) you'll find a narrow strip of sand that gives you immediate access to beautiful corals, fish and more.
