Perhaps because we only chose the snorkeling option, we did not have the 'wow' experience the others had who went for the combo tour that included fishing. I've snorkeled in Hawaii, Belize, the Philippines, and Costa Rica, and I must say, the place where Julio took us was the least satisfactory in terms of the sea life we witnessed. The waters were calm though and the boat ride was fun...just swimming in warm waters is a gift (especially for the winterbound!). Yet, it was rather disappointing not really coming across plentiful sea life. Additionally,Julio did not give us much information during the boat trip. We asked him questions, but did not really get the feeling that he was interested in providing 'insider' information. Granted, it turned out later on that he had a toothache, but I think that even without the toothache, Julio would not be keen on conversing with us. Mind you, he speaks English fluently so it wasn't a matter of a language barrier.
In Belize, for instance, our awesome guide, Carlo in Caye Caulker, told us helpful and interesting details about the sea life and the location where we would snorkel.
Franco at the restaurant was friendly and the lobster tacos were satisfactory. We enjoyed just relaxing at the beach before heading back home. The beach, while calm and shallow, is rocky; the snorkeling gear was also all washed up and hung to dry so our party couldn't go snorkeling again which we were told we could do at Playa Las Gatas. Good thing I had my own snorkeling gear. But if I did not have water shoes, the beach here would not have been fun since your bare feet would have been battered by the plentiful sharp rocks.
Arranging this tour was a breeze...kudos to Carol and Gary who responded so quickly to my many queries....
