Get up close and personal with marine life when you snorkel at Concha de Perla. Cross over a wooden bridge through a mangrove forest, keeping an eye open for iguanas and other land animals as you approach the lagoon. A large rock formation in front of the lagoon keeps the waters here especially calm, making this area great for children and those new to snorkeling. The clear water makes it easy to see the marine life such as sea lions, sharks, many types of fish, turtles, and more.

  • A small bay for snorkeling, without private beach. The existing platform to get started was quite "overloaded". There are much more productive places for snorkelling on the island.

  • An ideal place for snorkeling for the presence of marine fauna, the absence of currents and the mangrove. There are sea lobitos and it's a pleasant experience to swim near them, even don't panic if they come close and hopefully they'll try to "play" with you. I recommend using Neoprene. To get there you walk a few minutes along a wooden walkway that occasionally with the existing mangrove looks like a "tunel" and you can come across some sea lobito that is resting. Please note: Admission is free and there are NO walk-in closets. Enjoy Pearl Shell because: LIFE... it's a TRAVEL!

  • Amazing place for swimming with snorquel! Lots of fishes and safe if you're not that good at swimming. Rocky ground so swimming shoes are highly recommended.
  • Just off the dock! Saw more animals and birds here than anywhere else.
