Young Explorers

The ability to be surprised is an unmatched characteristic in children. That is why at Punta Leona we think of creating visual and participatory experiences in contact with nature.

Whether accompanied by one of our guides or with the family, children will be able to learn about the life cycle of butterflies, their importance in the ecosystem and the fragility of their nature. In our butterfly farm we have more than 20 species and in their different stages of life.

Children Biologists

Kids Marine Biologists is as fun as it sounds – an opportunity for kids to blow bubbles while diving and learn about marine life. Kids who are at least 8 years old can use the scuba gear to breathe underwater and swim in shallow water.

Child must be 8 to 12 plus years of age. Children should be comfortable in the water, but no previous experience is necessary. Parental authorization is required.

Children biologists will have the opportunity to:

  • Experience scuba diving under the direct care of a PADI Professional.
  • Take your first breaths underwater at a depth of less than 2 metres/6 feet.
  • Learn how to use scuba equipment made for children – not adults.
  • Field work in Playa Blanca with a marine biologist where the participant will learn the importance of coastal marine life, protect it and who to turn to if they notice that they are damaging it. This work ends with a Snorkeling dive in Playa Blanca directed and supervised by a qualified instructor.
  • Have fun.
