Did some shore dives rented tanks from crqshboat Tiara and Chris of Rincon snorkel and dive were very helpful. Damien at Aquatica water sports in Aguadilla great shop very good local dive information.
Stayed at Coconut palms Inn clean basic accommodations. You need to bring water to drink.

A quick drive from where we were staying in Rincon. Overall it was a nice place to snorkel but extremely dangerous to enter. The rocks were SO slippery due to being covered in moss. Parking is also horrific but we are quickly learning that it to be expected all over the island. Sadly this place is no exception without even a paved parking lot. There is also no where to rinse off.

Strong waves, but still clear visibility great for snorkeling. Lost a pair of sunglasses and found them by snorkel! Famous for the concrete steps on the beach. January visit, low crowds, not a problem finding parking or a quiet spot. Bring an umbrella!

Great place for pictures.
Even better for snorkeling!

I grew up snorkeling at the steps and is one of the best spots in the area. The place is protected as a marine reserve (thank God).

The entrance to the reserve is a very narrow road. People park on one side of the road and is very common for people to find their vehicle has been scratched or dented.

If you go, you need to take your picture at the steps. They have been there for many years. There is also a food truck at the end of the road.

We snorkeled here with Darryl from Rincon Diving & Snorkeling, and it was spectacular. Excellent visibility, many kinds of fish and coral, was very cool to see the elkhorn coral as well as a huge tarpon!

This is a great place to relax and enjoy the sea and sunshine, especially midweek when here are few people and you can walk at leisure. had no time in this trip for snrkeling, but it is something to look forward to.

Go early, so the water is calm and the sun is shining (and you can find parking) - enter about the middle of the beach, where entry is easiest, and swim toward the steps. There is an incredible elkhorn coral forest, and a veritable garden of fan coral of all colors, swaying mesmerizingly with the gentle waves. The huge schools of blue tang will accompany you with their electrifying blue.

All you need is a blanket or towel - no need to bring chairs nor umbrellas
Snorkeling is awesome
No need for fins just a good mask
You can rent them there
Go early in the morning
After 1 pm it’s impossible to swim
Food is good but overpriced
