Cano Island rises like a giant emerald from the sea.
Soaring coastal cliffs, white-sand beaches and a densely forested interior make this island one of the most dramatic landmasses in the area.
Indigenous pre-Columbian burial grounds on the island have contributed to its designation as a protected archeological and biological reserve.
There are several trails inside the island that lead to the Indian burial sites. Here you can contemplate the perfectly store spheres that they used to adorn their sacred sites. It is still a mystery to the scientific community how these spheres were made.
The diving and snorkeling crowd will be treated to an underwater playground of caves, cliffs and canyons at seven separate dive sites.
White-tipped shark, barracuda, red snapper, dog-toothed snapper, and several varieties of rays are a few of the marine species awaiting you.
Snorkelers will enjoy schools of colorful tropical fish closer to shore.
Caño Island is surrounded by five platforms of low reefs where over a dozen species of coral grow abundantly. These shelves house countless life forms like sea urchins, lobsters, and all sorts of giant conchs.
After a picnic lunch shaded by almond trees on the beach, guests are free to explore the island's burial sites on self-guided trails, play a friendly game of beach volleyball, go for another round of swimming, snorkeling, diving, or simply relax on the sun-warmed sand.
The emerald forests, crystal-clear waters, abundant marine and bird life, and several intimate beach coves will make your trip to the island a memorable adventure.
