  • ATTENTION: This is the best snorkeling on mainland Puerto Rico. Do not let the other six blogs you’ve read sway your decision to come here. It is hardly mentioned anywhere and I have no idea why. The reef here is very accessible and the water is not deep. There is a constant strong current from right to left that lets you see the whole reef without swimming. Just renter in on the right side and let it carry you to the left. We saw turtles, eels, and loads of fish. It is often windy so prepare for that. Parking is limited.
  • Beautiful beach. Wasn't able to get in the water due to strong tides.
