Visit the "San Rafaelito" islet and snorkel with sea lions, coral reef and the vast underwater life around them.

​Meet "La Gaviota" Island, home of the Blue-footed booby (season: Aug-Nov) and other endemic birds.

Finally,we'll arrive at one of Mexico's most beautiful and pristine beaches, Balandra. Where lunch will be served and you'll have time to be on the beach for a while or even have a small hike around.

*From June to August the snorkeling with sea lions is not permitted due to the mating season so we change the spot to an area with coral reef and underwater life. Since the zone we are visiting is a natural protected area, the use of lifejacket during the sea lions snorkeling is mandatory.
