This pristine island is a wonderful spot to do some snorkeling or private sun bathing. The island is not much more than mangrove swamps, white sand beaches and an abandoned 19th century lighthouse. The tiny island is only about one mile long and less than three miles wide, and there are no permanent inhabitants. Round-trip ferries leave from La Guancha.




    "Swim the underwater trail first and spend the rest of the day lounging on the beach or hiking up to the lighthouse (using appropriate footwear). Bring plenty of sunscreen and, just in case, insect repellent."

    WHAT I Liked:

    I attended the underwater inaugural ceremony by a snorkeling-equipped governor of the underwater trail that snorkelers may follow to read plaques identifying coral and other underwater things-to-see. Great beaches, public facilities and ferry access.

    WHAT I Disliked:

    Closing hours are not extended in the summer despite the extra hour of sunlight, so arrive early and don't leave a garbage trail!
