There are some good restaurants, cafes and hotels near to the beach, so location is good. Beach is enough clean.

Its closed for the moment to prevent contamination and take care of the environment. But you should go to san luis or the Aquarium

It is a place worth going to. Unfortunately it is for closed periods. I recommend asking open dates to take advantage of visiting it. It is an hour by boat and they give full service that includes transfer and food plus open bar.

I went to Cayo Bolivar with a small group of Brazillian friends and we had a great time there enjoying the breathtaking landscape around the island. The color of the sea is a wonderful light blue and the water is calm and warm..Even the lizards...More

This place is awesome. The only people there were us and a small military outpost with maybe 5 soldiers. The water is crystal clear and the sand is soft and white. I hear there are more people coming, but the only other people I've seen...More

Unfortunally the cay is close, they start the promotion and a rush of people that start to visit cause a negative envitorment impact, so the cay is close becouse of that

Cayo Bolívar is indeed a beautiful place to spend the day, with clear waters and coral-reef sand. I'd like to recommend it but it was just too crowded to really enjoy it. Unfortunately, the day I went there the number of tourists was huge. As...More

This was an amazing exclusion. Despite the fact that everyone said the crossing would be rough - it really wasn't that bad. We saw flying fish on the way there. There is very little shade on the island - I recommend you bring something of...More

I don't get the people complaining about bumpy ride, being splashed by water and island being far away. Thats the whole point. You are in the middle of the sea traveling by open speed boat! If you want to stay dry, put the slippers on,...More

Hola,estamos viajando el 6 de junio y estoy leyendo que no se puede ir a cayo Bolivar!!!!!! Que trizteza es uno de los lugares más bellos que hemos conocido, nosotros fuimos en 2015 y lo pasamos genial,es verdad que la ida es poco más de una hora y la lancha tiene asientos de madera pero es tan hermoso el color del mar y los peces plateados saltando altísimo fuera del agua a la par nuestra que nos olvidamos que el asiento es duro,y nosotros, mi esposo y yo tenemos más de 60,y cuando llegas te olvidas de t o d o es un paraíso en el fin del mundo donde están solo la naturaleza y vos!!!!!! El día se hace corto para disfrutar! !!!y la vuelta para nosotros fue re divertida, el capitán de la lancha hizo toda clase de maniobras para que nos empaparamos,así que llegamos hechos sopa pero con el corazón feliz por el día pasado,ojalá podamos repetirlo,!!!!!!!!!
