Northeast of Puerto Rico, the snorkeling at Cordillera Keys is known for amazing white coral forests teeming with diverse marine life. The Cordillera Keys is a chain of uninhabited islets forming Cayos De La Cordillera Nature Reserve that are habitat for sea turtles.

The Reserva Natural La Cordillera falls under the control of the Department of Natural Resources. It can be found off the coast of Fajardo and while each separate island has its own name, it is known collectively as La Cordillera. The various islands are: Los Farallones, Cayo Icacos, Cayo Cucaracha, Cayo Icacos, Cayo Lobos, Cayo Ratones, Cayo Diablo and la Banquilla, Arrecifes Hermanos, Arrecifes Barriles, Isla Palominos and Isla Palominitos.

To reach Puerto Rico by air, fly into Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU). To reach the snorkeling off Cordillera Keys from Puerto Rico, use the water taxi from Fajardo.

Overall, Cordillera Keys is the 2nd most popular snorkel dive spot of all 17 snorkeling dives in Puerto Rico.
