West View - Diving San Andres - Colombia

West View, also called La Piscinita, is one of San Andrés' best snorkeling spots. A short pier juts into the ocean. Water-shy tourists toss bread (included in the entrance fee) into the sea, while others snorkel to see the fish feeding. This is also a prime place to swim with manta rays. There is also an underwater apparatus—a large glass helmet connected to an air hose—that you can use to walk around on the sea floor (similar to scuba, but easier). The water is shallow and warm, and the staff is friendly. West View is included in most island tours, or you can take a local bus there yourself.
