If you enjoy seawater and like to swim like a fish between fishes you cannot skip La Piscinita on the west coast of San Andrés. La Piscinita is truly a magical place formed by the forces of nature. It is located on the west coast and called one of the best spots to snorkel and dive due to the crystal clear water. You will probably spend your day under water if you arrive here.
Snorkeling at La Piscinita
Nature’s forces formed a rock formation that looks like a natural pool locked into the cliffs. The shallow and warm water is crystal clear and full of tropical fish since they are safe here from predators and stronger sea currents.
You will see a great variety of sea life in all different colors of the rainbow. If you are lucky you might even see some baby sharks and turtles. The water is so calm that the locals call it a natural bath. You can jump off the cliffs or use the stairs down to the basin. Forgot your snorkeling gear? No worries you can rent it at the nearby restaurant “West View”. The restaurant also offers some great seafood and local cocktails, but don’t drink too much else you will be singing with the fishes.
