  • The island is beautiful and amazing. Clear waters! The boat goes on the sand and is there all day (6 hours). The crew was friendly and helpful. Would totally do it again.  more »
  • Is a tiny island, with beautiful beaches, only 7 minutes away from Ponce. There is a lighthouse. It's like an adventure there. I was there July 2018  more »
  • Half the island is gone. A hurricane prior to Maria did that but now you have like 100 meters of 4ft deep water. Great for playing around.
