Near our hotel (Banana Beach) they have a kids reef, for kids to learn snorkeling. It had a mory eel stuck in it!
We saw rays, lobsters, conches, horshoe crabs, large fish and crabs in the water behind the hotel
This is an easy snorkeling or scuba trip. You can arranged to be picked up from your hotel dock, about $35 per person.
Rays and nurse sharks flock to the boats.
It also includes a trip to Hol Chan.
The roads outside the center are like clay, with giant puddles and no sidewalks. You can be eaten in no time by mosquitoes too (cant tell from the picture). Unless you need to get to a store, walk along the beach
