Snorkeling is the best way for the inexperienced ocean swimmer to become acquainted with the stunning beauty of San Salvador reefs.

The G.O.s at Club Med will direct you to the finest spots. During your adventure, get ready to view unique ocean life (such as bonefish, barracuda, and the spotted eagle ray), and coral clusters.

Club Med will take you on one of the diving boats out to the coral reefs to see the vivid marine life. However, if you want to venture out on your own, just head to the water from the beach at your hotel or any public beach.

The resort offers equipment (snorkel, mask, fins and snorkel and life jacket) and can book you onto a snorkel tour to sites further off shore.
