Los Almendros is special because long term residents know the best restaurants, zip lines, best places to snorkel, the best captains for sport fishing, the best birding locations, what to look for at the pottery village and what to pay. They are anxious to share with you what makes Costa Rica so special for all of us.
The best snorkeling in Costa Rica is right in front of Los Almendros and a little to the right. The reef is full of sea life and only about 4 feet deep. There is a resident sea turtle a little further to the right. Bring your camera mask and fins. But if you forget anything the resident Dive shop at Los Almendros- Rocket Frog has it all. It is a good idea to bring sunscreen to Costa Rica. Sunscreen in Costa Rica is much more expensive.
