The statue is old and slowly getting damaged, but it’s still a cool quick activity to do while in Playa las Gatas. The best part is the coral and the amount of colorful fish swimming around. You can have a local guide you to it...More

You should be a good swimmer as this is rather a long swim from the beach or pier. The clear water makes it visable and it is a very nice photo op.

This was fun but water is cloudy so hard to see. Statue is BIG! It was very easy to get to and only about three feet down.
