Sports and Nature

Nature Dos Mosquises
As wit the other islands, Dos Mosquises has lovely beaches and clear waters.. The research center on marine life is interesting and visitors can see hawksbill and green turtles in their natural habitats.
Sport Dos Mosquises
Kiting is one of the sports that can be carried out here. There are trade winds all year round, but the best months for kiting here are February to June. The wind is clean and smooth and since it is a small island, any direction in which the wind is blowing is good for kiting. Diving is also a major feature in the reefs that border the key and Dos Mosquises offers great diving and snorkelling.
