  • Great beach, water shoes needed it's a bit rocky on shore and ocean. Family fun, beautiful area. Gift shops, portable potties, alcohol to buy.
  • What a beautiful island . The vibe gives such a great feeling as you set food on it! Clear turquoise waters and fine sand, together with the palm trees make you think you are in paradise.. we had the cocoloco drink - coconut with rum and it was delicious. We saw boars and a peacock.
  • Beautiful white sand beach and crystal clear water. Private yacht from Pulga Adventures & Tours is the way to go!
  • Beautiful beaches. The snorkeling is not great during or directly after rainy season as the water of full of debris but the water near the beach was super clear!
  • Mark my words, one of the best beache and Island in the Costa Rica. Plenty of things to offer, water sports, shacks and bars. Luckily we visited the place in the afternoon we were the last batch so we got the entire beach empty quite a rare sight, and so we could witness the amazing views havung magical white sand and blue green waters. Would advice you to take the entire package of Island visit along with night snorkeling to witness the bioluminescence. - Overall and excellent place to visit.
