Puerto Rico may be an island, but it’s not really the only island you can visit here. A case in point is Isla Palominos, which is just off the coast of Las Croabas, Fajardo in east Puerto Rico.
Getting to Isla Palominos
It’s not all that difficult to get to Isla Palominos. The first thing you need to do is to get a room first in El Conquistador Hotel & Casino. Isla Palomino is a private island belonging to the Alberto Bachman Glauser family, but El Conquistador Hotel & Casino rents most of it from the family for their water and beach entertainment activities.
Once you have your reservations, you can then travel from the hotel to the island. There’s a ferry boat available every 30 minutes, and the entire trip won’t take ten minutes. The boat has two decks, and you can stay on the top deck to fully appreciate just how crystal clear and inviting the waters are.
The boat trip to Isla Palominos is free of charge, and everything else you’ll enjoy here will just be added to your hotel bill. Here is a great video showcasing what to expect:
