After fishing, land on a deserted beach and snorkel in a secret spot only known to locals. Snorkeling can also be substituted for the fishing excursion if that is requested. The local guides are there to adapt the day to your preferences.

Later, take a speedboat to Tortuga Bay, a white sandy beach with basking marine iguanas, and shallow turquoise waters teeming with white-tip reef sharks and fish. Or frolic with sea lions on a snorkeling boat excursion.
