We had a great time with captain Paco! He was hospitable, provided all the supplies, gave us water, small sandwich and snacks. He took us by boat to "monkey island" where we snorkeled around it at some really cool reefs. It was a 3 hr tour and so worth the money! Beautiful memories! The only thing I would add is... More

We took the 3 hour tour with Captain Paco. It was a beautiful day, but we always expect quick rolling rainshowers in Naguabo. Saw tons of fish in the ship wreck and nice reef on the other side of the island. Monkeys were all over the îslsnd.

This is such a great trip and also educational for kids. You get to snorkel and shallow waters and see starfish and you also get to see the monkeys running around on monkey Island. We went with a seven-year-old and she loved it!!! The captain Paco is always concerned about your safety and you having a good time. Excellent adventure

Cayo Santiago or monkey island is a natural reserve for scientific research. On the trip they will take you close enough to observe them and to two sites of the island you snorkel or kayak if you want to. The best thing about the trip is anybody can do it young or old. Stay on the boat or explore the... More

We called Paco last minute to see if he had any availability for a trip to Monkey island, and to our joy he had one the next day with another couple. We met Paco at a restaurant, where his boat was moored. The other couple had something come up and couldn't come, so of ended up being just us! We... More

We had a great time. We brought a cooler, had a few beers, and kicked back. The water is shallow enough where you can stand up. We used masks, didn't even need a snorkel. It was crystal clear. We saw a lot of fish and a small ship wreck. An entire troop of monkeys crossed the island right in front... More

My family of 5 with young children have a great time visiting the island and seeing the monkeys. We really wanted to Kakak with Barefoot but they were full and recommended Paco. I'm glad we didn't try to Kakak with the kids as it would have been a strenuous paddle. Captain Paco loves what he does and the enthusiasm he... More
