Part of our day with Tico on his boat. We stopped and snorkeled here. Good selection of fish and reef. This is one of the 5 bays you can get by only by boat. A must to do!!

Enjoyed the boat ride to the national park & was great to see the shoreline from the water! Snorkelled at the National Park (group size was about 70 people?) - there were about another 4 or 5 boats there at the same time (we prefer smaller groups & less "commercialized) - snorkeling was OK (San Augustine is better). Then went... More

So quiet when you pull into the bay and magic under the water. Even beginners can snorkel here, it's very calm and safe water the beach itself has nothing but sand and rocks to explore. It's a wonderful treat.

This was the 4th time I went out on a boat excursion of the 7 bay National Park with Roberto from Yellow Fin Catching. Roberto is a great tour guide, and makes you feel very safe and takes time for you. This last trip, we ran into a pod of 300 dolphins. We stayed for an hour and got amazing... More

I visited the National Park twice and had a great birding experience with using Cornelio Ramos, a professional guide. I got great photos of the Red-breasted Chat, Gray Hawk, Crane Hawk, Doubleday's Hummingbird, and many other species that I'd never seen before.

This is a virgin area and the best for snorkeling, the India bay had a beautiful sea for all the people that enjoy this activity, I visit it with 3 kids one 6 years old and he been able to snorkel. The water is the the best of the area in my opinion

Leaving Huatulco Harbor we turned North. I expected the beautiful clear blue water, but I was surprised at the stone seashore. The blue waves crashing into gray and black craggy wall, with white spray was for me jaw dropping. Having lived in Hawaii and the South Pacific, I was accustomed to the sea slamming into large lava flows. I believe... More

Snorkeling in the coral reef was fun. We spent an hour having lunch under a canvas top. Food was good.
