Definitely the most beautiful water in bocas. It is a state park so it is well taken care of and was gorgeous.

We took a private tour to Zapatillas and the Island is so secluded and beautiful, none of us wanted to leave. The water is clear, you can snorkel right off the beach. Pack a cooler and some snacks and enjoy the day.
