  • The island is beautiful and amazing. Clear waters! The boat goes on the sand and is there all day (6 hours). The crew was friendly and helpful. Would totally do it again.

  • Is a tiny island, with beautiful beaches, only 7 minutes away from Ponce. There is a lighthouse. It's like an adventure there. I was there July 2018

  • Small, beautiful island off the coast of Ponce. Great for a day trip. Has good snorkeling. The tour company offers different packages with umbrellas, snorkeling tours and/or food and drinks, depending on what one prefers to include.
  • Came to Isla Cardona with Waterland Excursions. The island is a nature preserve. There are no kioskos or places to purchase food and drinks. You have to bring everything with you. The ride from La Guancha to the Island is a short one; maybe 10 minutes. The water was nice and warm and there was a lot of marine life to see. Bring water shoes as there are a lot of rocks and coral at the shore. You'll also want to walk around the island to see its beautiful sights. There are iguanas, lizards and a lot little hermit crabs with beautiful shells walking around. Oh! Don't forget to Bring sunblock because the sun can get really intense!
  • Beautiful island for a one day trip. Not to crowded. There are no bathrooms, showers, or places to eat. Bring everything that you need to spend the day.
  • Half the island is gone. A hurricane prior to Maria did that but now you have like 100 meters of 4ft deep water. Great for playing around.
  • Beautiful little island. Very nice place to spend the day.
