Playa Ancon

There is a beautiful coral garden here that also looks quite healthy but the fish life is sparse, possibly due to overfishing by the local community.

You’ll see typical Caribbean life like nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, parrot fish, and grouper.
