Caño Island is located just 12 nautical miles from Drake Bay. The boat trip out to the island is a very scenic ride that takes about 45 minutes. En route you may encounter flying fish, dolphins, or possibly whales! The water in front of the beach has a variety of colorful tropical fish and is great for snorkeling or diving. In addition to swimming and sunbathing, you can hike with your guide on the island to explore the interior. The island once had an indigenous cemetery but this was plundered long ago before it was established as a reserve. However large pieces of mysterious indigenous stone spheres can still be observed here. The forest harbors “milk trees” that have a white sap that one can drink, and may have been cultivated by the indigenous people as a food source!
