A visit to Stingray Beach will provide the same interactive experience as scuba diving, just without the heavy gear (or price tags). Located in San Miguel, this facility allows you to get up close and personal with these undersea creatures, providing ample opportunities to swim among them. And don't worry about getting stung: The rays' barbs are clipped, so the animals can't hurt you. 

Recent visitors couldn't get enough of the experience, describing the rays as beautiful and mellow, and the staff as respectful of the animals and reassuring to the humans. Others caution that you should head here first thing in the morning as this popular place can get very crowded. 

Stingray Beach opens at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday and the last tour starts at 3 p.m. On Sunday, hours are 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. All tours must be booked in advance. Admission is $64 for adults and $29 for children younger than 12. Stingray Beach is located about 2 miles outside of the city center and can be reached via taxi.
