March 4. Located near the northwestern tip of Isla Partida, the rocky islets of Los Islotes are known to be one of the few places where you can swim with sea lions in their natural environment. Boats on the national park buoys are moored on the north and south shores. Go to El Bachito for snorkeling or to the nearby fishing village of San Evaristo and spend the night at a secure anchorage.
