“Way to cool. One of my favorite places.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I liked it all. Great boat ride over and great snorkeling and fishing. What a place to just relax. This and white water rafting is what I recommend for all CR visitors.

“Superb Sea Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Amazing rays despite strong cross currents. We were fortunate to have a great dive master who visited a secluded beach for lunch.

“Good but be prepared to be with everyone else!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is a pretty island for sure but a tourist trap that probably spoils it a little. There are probably quieter spots you could find elsewhere. The sand is golden and the waters are good for swimming though as well as fantastic snorkeling a little further out, hence the tourist trap... Worth a stop as part of a bigger trip.

“Relax!”

On the way to the Island, nice little group kept everyone entertained, which later everyone started dancing and having a great time. Beers were kept cold!!!
