Icacos Island (Cayo Icacos)

Cayo Icacos , Fajardo, Puerto Rico, 00738

The Basics

A white sand beach rings a forested grove at the center of the tiny island, where waves and wind are almost the only sounds. Offshore, schools of colorful tropical fish inhabit a system of coral reefs. Snorkeling cruises to Cayo Icacos are a popular option for mainland visitors, and boat tours typically leave from Fajardo or even San Juan. Motor boat and catamaran cruises allow you to swim from the safety of the ship’s deck, explore the colorful reef below, and go ashore to stroll along the beach and visit the green center of the island. It’s also possible to visit Icacos as part of an island-hopping tour.

A fantastic paid experience. The hosts were kind, funny, and really took care of us. They look out for the needs of every single individual. The package includes snorkeling, delicious local and mainstay beverages (soft drinks and rum), vegan to non-veg food options, floating mat to lounge on and more. Highly recommend. Worth every dollar.

What a great trip. Hectmar is so friendly and truly enjoys her role. She goes out of her way to keep everyone happy, drinks refilled, and playing DJ. Solimar is a wonderful guide and filled with knowledge about the tour. Capt. Danty is cool and super chill and does a good job navigating to the best spots.
