Snorkeling

we are staying at the Decameron in Feb. Would like to do some snorkeling and understand we will need to go else where. Can anyone suggest a tour that involves snorkeling?

You won't find a tour that does decent snorkeling from the Decameron. You have two choices ... go to Portobelo or go to Bocas del Toro. Bocas actually has some wonderful snorkeling ... a variety of corals like you'd never believe. Portobelo is the closest ... about 3 1/2 hours drive time from Decameron.

Thank you for the info. Because of the long distance is there something else we could do on that day in conjunction with snorkeling?

If you are driving it's 8 or 9 hours. The fastest way is to drive back to Albrook (Panama City) and fly from there (Gelebert Airport).
