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

The transport(motorboat) to island is a little bit dangerous (many bumps), the lunch provided is OK(batacon, coconut rice, fish or chicken and salad), but the fresh water finished earlier. The tent is a paid benefit. About the natural beauty, I did not identify any extraordinary...More

This is the most amazing place I've visited, it's an hour ride on a jet boat to get there and we were lucky enough to be just a few on the cay. We did an snorkel excursion around the island with the guide, awesome! We...More

The best trip we did inthe island. Cayo Bolivar is very beautiful. We recomend to take a good sunblock. The island don't have too much shadow (the trees are far from the beach), and they charge you if you want to use a parasol.

Two small islands with white sand, blue clear water and little sharks swimming near you = paradise! Some people might suffer a little on the shaky boat ride (about 50min) but it's totally worth it. Take a good sunscreen, hat and snorkel. Go as soon...More

Gorgeous beaches and water on a secluded island. Tons of sea shells line the shores and blue lizards crawl through the shrubs. Three nurse sharks regularly circle the key, but don't worry-- they don't bite. The locals the operate the boats feed them. Snorkeling is...More
