My husband and I will be returning soon for a month. We love to shore snorkel. Does anyone know if Fiesta's beach is useable by anyone while it is closed for construction? Is the dive shop open there? We stay in town in a rental. Are there any good snorkel areas within walking distance of town. We know the areas near the Money Bar. We probably won't do a rental vehicle every day and need to find some new places! Bikes would be great, but know they are hard to come by. Can't wait! Thanks!

from what I have observed driving back and forth, all facilities at FA are closed.  

 

You might want to check Sun Set Beach, lots of snorkeling going on there, and the restaurant is open under new management.  

 

Sun Set is located south of town, but before you get to Ernesto's, or Park Royal hotel. The Navy base is right next door.

 

It is at least 7 miles closer then FA.

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

I like to snorkel in front of Coral Princess (have seen a spotted eagle ray here two different times).  We also get in right past the old busted up building at  Buccanos and snorkel to Playa Azul.   We also like to get in at Playa Azul and snorkel to El Cozumeleno.
