Nice snorkeling experience

You can get to 3 places by bus, ferry and speedboat: Reef Palancar (would have been unnecessary), Columbia Reef (numerous and different types of fish were attracted by the feeding of our companions), Sandbank El Cielo (there were many starfish nearby) ). It is recommended to take this with a waterproof camera, otherwise the experience will be gone too quickly. If you imagine a huge colorful underwater world, as it sparkles from some brochures, you will not get your money's worth. Otherwise, the excursion was well organized and handled.

Very nice

Long day, but well worth it

We can walk even with rain. Very beautiful landscape. Small boat and not very comfortable. We spent about 30 minutes at each tourist spot snorkeling. The boat trip time between each tourist spot takes about 30 minutes.
