Isla de Cabuya, Cabuya

(4.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Isla de Cabuya, which dates back to pre-Columbian times, provides a serene and secluded atmosphere by the sea. It was used as an Indian burial ground and still serves as a cemetery today. At the cemetery, find gravesites encircled by shells, family tombs, and a two-faced headstone. The spit of land, which is only accessible by foot during low tide, typically has many surrounding tidal pools where you can find hermit crabs and small fish. Bring snorkeling gear if you have it to explore the island's surrounding reef and discover local marine life.
