For me, the snorkeling is where it's at since that's what I can afford to do. The highlight during this trip was swimming with a 6 meter, medium sized, whale shark. It was like swimming next to a mini-submarine! This wasn't even a big one. It came so close, that it's entire length didn't fit into the camera's view!
Besides the whale shark we saw today, the smaller sea life is amazing too. Compared to the Caribbean side of Panama, the Pacific wins by a mile. I would come back here in second if you ever asked me. Put Santa Catalina on your wish list and come snorkel and dive this pristine area. You will not be disappointed.
