This site was ok, but when we visited there was a lot of boats and tourists. the sunken wreck was ok but not super impressive, same too with the fish. There is a lot better snorkeling at Siete pescado

This was really cool. Out of nowhere you see the shipwreck. Lots of fish swimming around in this area. While we were snorkeling there were divers down on the wreck and you could watch them. Only drawback is that it was very crowded.

This small wreck is great to explore, but as it is so shallow, this is where snorkels come... So you end up floating between a lot of other people. Still worth it though.

This place is good for Snorkeling . If your a good swimmer you'll enjoy this place. Just make sure you bring your own snorkeling gear, because usually in the tour its not free...

After watching cartoons/non-cartoon that involve sunken ship- its best to bring the kids here to see their expressions of "awesome". They appreciate it because its the real thing. It would have been a better experience if there was history involve in this attraction.
