What an exciting day! it was our first day in Panama and we are ready for some beach time and for snorkeling, Granito de Oro it’s the best spots in this region for snorkeling and we sure got to see a lot. The water was very clear, the tide was right, and the day was not too hot; such perfect conditions to fully enjoy our day.
