We rented snorkel gear on the beach for 300$N and set out to find the King of Kings. It was easy to locate because of the floats on top of the water. The rope helps with descending. There are lots of fish and sea urchins there and the coral is making a comeback.

The water is full of fish. Mostly clear, no coral. go in off the pier or wear water shoes. Rocks are covered with sea urchins.

This is a pretty awesome feature of Las Gatas beach. This Jesus statue is just outside of the usual swimming/snorkel area. There is/used to be a buoy attached to it to help you find it. Now you can usually just find tour groups hovering around it with their paddle board. Swim down and with good enough clarity, you can see... More

Playa Las Gatas is a true Mexican experience. Your can only get there by walking a rocky path or taking the water taxi from town. The snorkleing is wonderful

You should be a good swimmer as this is rather a long swim from the beach or pier. The clear water makes it visable and it is a very nice photo op.

The Jesus statue beneath the water is excellent snorkeling. Little fish surround you and once out of the water a cool beer is literally steps away.

This was fun but water is cloudy so hard to see. Statue is BIG! It was very easy to get to and only about three feet down.

Fantastic awesome experience 100 pesos well spent . Rocks a real hazard beware. When can I go back? Rent equipment and guide from first stall after getting off water taxi. Which is an experience in its self. No need to take hotel excursion. Safe and lots of fun.
