Likes: beautiful scenic view to island, I would suggest the small fast boat that gets you there in 30mins- 1hr. The large catamaran takes 2hrs. The water is clearer and nicer than in Puntarenas (black sand beach)- this sand is a very light brown. There is a lot to do: jet ski, banana boat, eating and drinking.

Dislikes: none!

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.

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!!!

Good value for money, however the island is plagued with tourists and there isnt much room for down time. However, it is beautiful.

This is a wonderful beach and a great way to spend the day. We used Tiquicia Tours to book this tour and they did a great job. We had lunch on the beach and snorkeled.
