Vill Del Palmar Flamingos Looking down at the pool and the Ocean beyond the sand. Pool, Beach, Pool, Beach, just way too many decisions. Just outside the harbor on our snorkeling trip. Snorkeling at the Marietas Islands on board the Elia Mann On the way out, we were seeing whales spouting in the distance, a few Manta Rays, and then they dropped us in the water near the shore of the Island to see the colorful fish with our snorkel gear. I was swimming closer to the shore where the water was clearer, and there were more currents. It was fun letting the currents sweep me past the rocks.
