The water goes from a deep blue to aqua, then turquoise all the way to white foam. The whole family spent hours collecting shells, walking for ...

    National Reef Park Garrafon

    The last time I was here was in 1986, and it was one of the best snorkeling experiences of my life. It is more expensive now, but probably safer. It still has wonderful fish.
