Snorkeling at Playa Blanca Resort

Is there snorkeling near or at Playa Blanca Resort? If yes what is it like. Should I bring my mask and snorkel or not?

We found the ocean to be very rough with strong undercurrants and when we could go into the water, the sand was stirred up so much, there was nothing to see. There is no coral reef to attract the fish. Our whole week was red flag. The water isn’t the pretty aquamarine colour that I enjoy at other destinations. San Andres Island is off the coast of Panama and the snorkeling there is awesome but that is a whole other vacation destination. We enjoyed Panama for the rainforest and seeing the Panama canal and of course, the great shopping bargains but as a beach/snorkeling holiday, not the best choice of locations.
