Snorkel in the colorful seabed overflowing with fish and shellfish. You can reach the island from numerous nearby destinations that run water taxi and tour services. Be sure to get your tour guide to take you through the mangroves on your way. Ilet Caret is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
