I wouldn't spend the money to visit the island . The catamaran over was lovely. The island disappointed. The sand is courser than Bavero Beach and there are rocks and weeds in the water.

This is stunning place. Must have to visit on Peninsula. Nobody lives there. You have to buy a trip at your hotel to get there. Cost 100 USD pp.

We boarded the bus for 720am for a very long 2 hr bus ride (we were told it was an hr). Once we arrived we boarded a beautiful catamaran... More
