Coral Garden lies on the westerly side of Isla Solarte, a 10-minute boat ride away from base. This site boasts some of the healthiest corals in the region. Freshwater runoff can severely cut visibility (usually about 10-15m) at times and pelagic life is limited here, but the healthy reef is full of macro photo opportunities and hawksbill/green turtles can be seen (infrequently) at the right time of year (late April to early June,roughly speaking). Some people know this site as Grandma’s Garden, and depths range from four to eighteen meters, making this a great snorkel destination, too.
