This was a safe and easy place to snorkel and see and touch marine life up close. The guide was very personable and told us a lot about the marine life. This made it very interesting as well.

The most beautiful Laguna in the world. You can snorkeling, although you no need to go into the water to see the bottom.

If you're a little afraid of the water the Lagoon might be just the thing. You can snorkel and see the fish or come every morning at 9am and feed them.

Easiest just to book through your hotel once you have arrived, they do two trips daily and come and collect you. We only booked a day or two in advance
