The ideal time to visit is from May to October. There you can also enjoy the coral beds, dive in caves and passageways or discover the famous nurse sharks and humpback whales, which sometimes approach the coast.

Existen también tours de snorkel en entornos cerrados, que te permitirán ver y nadar junto a peces espectaculares, como tiburones y rayas, en un entorno seguro.
