Concha de Perla, Puerto Villamil

4.4
#1 of 8 in Wildlife in Puerto Villamil
Get up close and personal with marine life when you snorkel at Concha de Perla. Cross over a wooden bridge through a mangrove forest, keeping an eye open for iguanas and other land animals as you approach the lagoon. A large rock formation in front of the lagoon keeps the waters here especially calm, making this area great for children and those new to snorkeling. The clear water makes it easy to see the marine life such as sea lions, sharks, many types of fish, turtles, and more.

  • We went a few times and if you dont want to find people standing in the corals and treating it like a swimming pool, you need to go early. The time we best enjoy we went at 7am. The tide was low and t...  more »
  • Beautiful place to see some cool marine life. Ask about low and high tide before you go because it can affect the visibility. But you will see some neat things regardless of the tides!  more »
  • It's a little hidden. I wouldn't have found it if not for a local showing me the night before. The water was so calm and clear the next day I went and it was packed with swimmers, mainly kids. I don't...  more »

  • Came here in October 2017 but unfortunately me and my group did not have our snorkel equipment because we did not know that you could just walk in and snorkel.. It is however a great place to take pics of sea lions since they are all over the boardwalk out to the snorkel area and swimming around in there also.
  • Convenient place to snorkel and see all sorts of sea life. Just walk over from town with your snorkel gear and swim suit. We had young kids (4 & 6) and it was not ideal for our 4 year old. The rocks were difficult to walk on getting into water and the scene was a little intimidating. So, we quickly switched to one of the sand beaches in town and she was happy.
  • Nice free snorkel. There is no beach though so just take your snorkeling equipment. When I went there it was full of sea lions and different kinds of fish.
  • Very nice view with the river
  • Great place to snorkel with orcas and great whites! 🦈🐳🐋
