Great snorkel site, evident by all the boats. Enter Boca Catalina and head right towards the reef. We snorkeled from Boca Catalina to Arashi Beach and found it an excellent day. Lots of macro life - sponges, corals, anemones, nudibranches, etc Saw sea snakes, eels, cuttlefish, squid, tons of fish. Not so much reef as Mango Halto but the rocks hold excellent life and are worth poking around. Excellent beginners site. We'll try Arashi today and head down to Boca Catalina. A+ for beginners.
