Snorkeling at Punta Faro Resort, Mucura Island, Colombia, South America

Punta Faro is a luxurious resort situated on a bit of Caribbean paradise, Mucura Island. The island is about a two hour boat ride from the port of Cartagena, Colombia, South America.
One of the activities I enjoyed at the resort was snorkeling among the coral reefs in the pristine waters off the island. Another was a visit to Santa Cruz del Islote, the most crowded island in the world (see the photo essay on JPG Magazine—link below).
I'm somewhat a novice at snorkeling, but it was my second choice as I couldn't find time to schedule PADI diving lessons with the resort's knowledgable dive master.
I've included here some of my underwater photos taken—on its first time out—with my Nikon AW100.
