My recommendations are for Free diving: If you are new to free diving this is a great spot to see if you reach the bottom of the wreck! Snorkeling: This is amazing for snorkeling as it is relatively shallow; the actual wreck is at around 8-10 meters and can easily be seen from the top. Diving: If you are diving... More

This site was ok, but when we visited there was a lot of boats and tourists. the sunken wreck was ok but not super impressive, same too with the fish. There is a lot better snorkeling at Siete pescado

It's an old wreck that's in fairly shallow water. Lots of fish and lots of tourists. It gets very crowded

This was really cool. Out of nowhere you see the shipwreck. Lots of fish swimming around in this area. While we were snorkeling there were divers down on the wreck and you could watch them. Only drawback is that it was very crowded.

You can see the Skeleton Shipwreck as it is not so deep. So many fish in this area and not swim away. Do not come here without your underwater camera! And be sure your camera will float if you loose it. The water is very clear and you will even see divers going down and exploring the shipwreck. It is... More

This small wreck is great to explore, but as it is so shallow, this is where snorkels come... So you end up floating between a lot of other people. Still worth it though.

The wreck is 5 meters down but if you have a good resistance you are able to touch it. There's a cord that helps to pull down

One of the places you want to do snorkeling so many zebra fishes and you can see a shipwreck. I really enjoyed feeding the fishes and it won't swim away from you unlike to other snorkeling areas in the country if you are just swimming. They will just will along with you. If you enjoy swimming with fishes this is... More

This place is good for Snorkeling . If your a good swimmer you'll enjoy this place. Just make sure you bring your own snorkeling gear, because usually in the tour its not free...
