Guanica and the entire Southwest part of PR is my favorite, for the flat, super calm waters. I returned after 20 years, and still loved visiting Guilland Island (as we native spell it). You take a very short 10 min. ferry. Safe, you can see...More

I'm glad we saw it, but I wouldn't go back. It's very pretty. The ferry from San Jacinto restaurant was fine (their food wasn't). There just wasn't much to do on the island. We rented snorkle gear which was a waste. The shelters and tables...More

A terrible experience. First of all, the ferry’s crew was bitter and unpleasant. They weren’t willing to let us board the ferry that was just about to leave to the island, so we had to wait an extra hour, till the next ferry. Don’t understand...More

We came here for our anniversary, and were not disappointed. The island is located in Guanica PR. It's about a 2 hour drive from San Juan. Once you arrive, you take a ferry that leaves every half hour. The restaurant can take your order and...More

The water was insanely clear and calm. Warm temperature and lots of sun. Remember is a reservation and because of it there’s no water or food you have to take everything u need. There are restrooms and some shacks.

Beautiful mangrove island with no real beaches. They do have random picnic tables set-up but they are away from the water. Great snorkeling and a tiny colony of iguanas are among the mangrove trees. Clear warm water and perfect for the entire family.
