  • It is a very nice Park, you have to go at this point, nose if are you can rent a boat to get here but I am sure that it is part of a tour giving Panamanians with authorized companies. The sea is just like all transparent ideal for snorkeling. Single eye is the island, no restaurant and others... So that can bring some drinking and eating. Best regards

  • We enjoyed a spectacular day in the Cayo, an incredible white sand and crystal clear water beach where we saw fish of all kinds, and sea stars, take into account that there is no place of purchase, must bring what they consume, go them to recommend, stay tuned to the boatmen who prey such as the entrance to the cayo
