Isla de icacos: Excursión de un día a Icacos

Cayo Icacos — Island in Puerto Rico — Don’t Miss Dreamy Icacos Cay

5 Star Icacos Puerto Rico Tour

Cayo Icacos (Icacos Cay) is one of the islands of Puerto Rico, and one of the most special places to visit.  Icacos Cay is the largest of La Cordillera Nature Reserve, a group of beautiful keys off the east coast of Puerto Rico, a short boat ride from the town of Fajardo, about a 45-minute drive from the capital city of San Juan.

While there are many beaches on the main island of Puerto Rico, taking a catamaran ride to this offshore treasure is certainly special.

The Experience at Cayo Icacos

Once you step onto the boat, you’ll be swept away from the modern world and transported to an archipelago of undeveloped islands. There, the sandy shores are home to birds. The waters are playgrounds for sea turtles, schools of tropical fish, and dolphins that often visit. You’ll be one of the lucky visitors to enjoy crystal clear water and pass the time swimming and snorkeling to see the world underneath the sea and bask under the sun as you relax or play on soft clean white sand.  The best beach is on the west side of the island, and the best snorkeling spot is on the rocky part of the beach where fish love to hide and play.

The only sights from Icacos Island are the surrounding water, nearby islands, and the main island.

The landscape on the island is just like nature intended without human interference, with a few scattered palm trees and endemic plants growing freely.  The sand is soft, and white, decorated lightly with tiny shells, gently kissed by the mesmerizing blues of the Caribbean Sea.

We were a group of 8 adults and 2 small children ( ages 4 and 1 ) and this was the perfect trip. The entire crew was excellent! The sailing was steady, the views beautiful, the lunch and drinks delicious, and the swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear turquoise waters amazing! There was plenty of time to enjoy each part of the trip, very fun and relaxing!

Sailing, swimming, and snorkeling fun!

RozCt / CT

This catamaran trip was AWESOME! One of the best things I’ve experienced vacationing in Puerto Rico. First of all I want to thank Jorge one of the crew members for making this trip a great experience, he made sure my family and I had food, drinks and was very informative on the sights. Thank you for helping make great memories!

catamaran trip was AWESOME!

This was my second excursion with East Island Excursions and they did it again! We were a family of four (with a 5 yr old). Fun was had by all…I could not keep my 5 year old off the water-slide 🙂 Food was great and a great atmosphere.

Did it again!

Took the Icacos Island tour with East Island Excursions. Loved every bit of the tour. Truly professional, friendly and helpful crew. The places we were taken to were exotic and I just loved it . My phone which had most of the pics and memories got drenched in the sea water and died and Levi one of the member of the crew member truly felt our anxiety took pictures for us and sent it later . Wonderful guy. I am not a swimmer but took the plunge with the help of Moises from the crew team . I would recommend East Island Excursions and Levi to anyone visiting Puerto Rico and taking the Island tours

Loved the Icacos Island tour with East Island Excursions

sarmibhatt / India

Loved our visit to Icacos with East Island Excursions. Originally we had booked for Vieques, but due to weather, we could not go there. East Island was very prompt in calling us every day and giving us an update. In the end, they even offered to shift us to Icacos on priority and refunded the balance amount. Their boats are amazing and look luxurious. The staff is insanely friendly, offer great food and drinks and snorkeling tips. Had a lovely time with East Island. Will definitely try Vieques tour with them next time I am in San Juan.

Great tour company, especially for Snorkelling

Unforgettable Trip to Icacos

silma330 / Snellville, Georgia

This is my second time in two years traveling with East Island Excursions – and they really do a great job! You will NOT be disappointed. They are very easy to make reservations with and they call with reminders, The staff is extremely friendly, the boat clean and the overall experience is amazing. There are two stops – one at Icacos Island and another at another site where the coral is. You will see a bunch of beautiful things! And the water is amazingly crystal blue . You’ll arrive around 9am to check in, leave at 9:30am and be back at the dock around 3:30 pm. A great activity for all ages – my family thoroughly enjoyed. They serve you food and rum drinks too! Just an overall great time!

Top Notch!

Visiting from Chicago. By all means the highlight of our Vacation. Wow, we had the best time. We booked a snorkeling trip to the Island of Icacos Catamaran Full Day trip. The boat was beautiful, the crew was so friendly and helpful! The captain “William” mingled with everyone and took time to make sure everyone was having a great time. The bartender/cook/organizer Chris was very informative and kept everyone’s attention with important information so as to keep everyone safe and having a great time. The food was a delightful surprise. These guys have it down to a science, Excellent food music and ambiance. This is a must do for the entire family. Will definitely do this again! Love these guys!

The captain and crew are really organized and always on the look out for the well being of the people. Thank you to Capt. William, Daniel, Christian, Neftali and others for your excellent customer service. Thanks to your professionalism during the trip me, my best friend and the kids had a superb experience at Icacos.

I was so glad we got to experience snorkeling like this when we were in Puerto Rico. East lsland excursions was a great company to book with. It was an all day adventure and they provide lunch and service unlimited alcoholic drinks. The crew on the boat was great very friendly and knowledge. Our captain was Ty and he did an amazing job informing us about the water, different sea animals and islands that we past. The gear that they provided was clean and looked new, the boat was kept clean as well. I definitely recommend booking a tour through them for a great experience just remember to bring your sunblock and keep reapplying because we got sun burnt.

Snorkeling fun

This is by far the most fulfilling activity I did while in PR. This excursion handles everything you need from food, to drinks and location. First stop is snorkeling and the crew were helpful in explaining all safety concerns, for us and the environment. They served us an incredible lunch complete with pina coladas to refresh from the heat. The 2nd stop was a relaxing beach and they gave us ample time to really enjoy the water and take pictures. I would without a doubt book this trip again and can’t wait to visit 🙂

A must!!

This is a good place for the money! My boyfriend and I are backpacking so we’re on a budget and this was one of the cheaper options.
Kitchen is super clean but we couldn’t get the stove top to work. The location is amazing, walking distance to pretty much everything and in a quiet neighborhood.
The host was super easy to communicate with via WhatsApp, answered very quickly and very politely.
We had a huge closet in our room, not sure if all rooms come with a closet like that but if you’re staying for a while it’s perfect.

Very friendly host that will help you if needed. I really recommend getting the Master Suite or Junior Suite (private rooms). They are quiet, good for sleep and there is a fan (don’t pay extra for the aircon). For Acapulco, staying here is very good value. It is worth paying more for these private rooms (the other spaces have a lot less privacy). Nice kitchen with all the conveniences. Sometimes there are problems with the water system here but it comes back on fairly quickly. Overall, a decent place to stay for budget travelers.

The island of Cuba is located at a sufficient distance from the mainland and has a unique flora and fauna. The capital of the country is the resort city of Havana. You can only get there by air.
