This private island is only accessible to guests of El Conquistador/ Waldorf Astoria of Fajardo. Lots of beach activities on island (for rent),and food and drink is available for purchase (not cheap, but to be expected on a private island). Well worth the trip if if you are staying at this hotel. Not to be missed- private and pretty.

We went here for the afternoon when staying at El Conquistador and it really is a most relaxing place. Nice little bar (which we had to shelter in when a squall came through) and sunbeds. I thought the cost to rental jet skis was over the top but that shouldn't detract.

You don't have to stay at the hotel to get there. We went by private boat, like the locals do. It is a beautiful place to visit. White sand and pristine water. Take an umbrella since there is no shade. We also took our lunches and spend the day beside the hotel accommodations. Some boats have very loud music, but... More

A shuttle runs every twenty minutes from the conquistador bringing you to a private island paradise. The island was owned by Maureen Ohara and leased to the hotel. Wonderful addition to the hotels activities.
