Beautiful island, two connect on low tide w/ a sandbar. Plenty of flowers around and crystal clear water at the pier about 50' deep and can see the bottom. Shark or two may be visible also.

with the exception of the hilarious village near the 'port', the island is a jungle surrounded by heavy surf. it punishes the weak, stupid and unprepared. and don't believe them when they tell you there are no alligators.

There is a small restaurant on the beach that serves fabulous food, but you'll need to make reservations in advance - just ask for Tony Ayala on Contadora and he will set it... More
