We begin by snorkeling North on Tamarindo Beach while observing the gorgeous scenery of Culebra and Cay Luis Peña. Our first snorkeling session into the refreshing coastal waters is to discover the wonders of the corals and colorful fish under the sea. Make sure you hold your snorkel tightly because speechlessness followed by excitement is a known effect after discovering the hidden secrets this wild refuge and unspoiled reefs hold within…after seeing one of Culebra’s finest natural reserve’s marine flora and fauna, we head back to enjoy some cold beverages and snacks. Wait … there is still more! Grab your snorkeling gear (provided with tour) again because we are heading out to swim towards the sea grass beds where yet another secret awaits. Apart from the other exceptional marine life, chances are high to experience Culebra’s most unique treasure, observing the native Hawksbill and Green sea turtles and enjoy their majestic beauty!
Hope to see you…soon!
