Formed by coral sands, they offer a world of underwater exploration and wildlife. Around the cayes’ shores, you’ll spot cacti, iguanas, and crabs. Underwater, submerged forests, sandy bottoms, and large rocky walls make this area a one-stop site for snorkeling, day or night diving.
The remains of over 15 sunken galleons from the 14th, 16th, and 17th centuries lie in shallow waters off the shores of Montecristi and are accessible to beginner snorkelers. Among them are Los Cañones de Tebo, Los Perfumes, Bolas de Mosquete, Los Ladrillos, Las Pipas, Las Porcelanas, Grandes Cañones, and Punta Luna. Excursions are available daily year-round when weather conditions allow.
