Isla Coral and Isla Cangrejo

Rincón de Guayabitos


  • Isla Coral (Coral Island) and its smaller neighboring island, Isla Cangrejo (Crab Island), are both considered ecological reserves. The islands are located about 1.8 miles (3 kilometers) off the beach in Rincón de Guayabitos and undeniably provide an anchor for the entire Bahia de Jaltemba (Bay of Jaltemba).

    The natural habitat includes a wide variety of flora and fauna, including blue-footed boobies, pelicans, seagulls and other birds. The clear turquoise waters that surround the island provide an ideal setting for coral, marine plants, colorful fish, starfish, sea turtles, stingrays and other aquatic life.

    Visitors can rent a kayak, take a panga (small fishing boat) or buy a ticket to ride the party boat to get to Coral Island. There are no facilities or electricity on the island, so you may want to pack a lunch or drinks to enjoy while you’re there.

    1. :

      We had a blast on Coral Island. Took the panga out ($120 pesos per person) look for the guys on shore in front of the boats. They will tour you around to Los Ayala and then to the islands. Can also do whale watching as well for an extra charge. We took our snorkeling gear but there is a guy (Heriberto) who rents it there as well. We went with him on a little snorkeling tour around the island and then out to a sunken treasure just off shore. It's a lovely change of pace. The water is clear and calm with a good selection of fish to see. Highly recommend.
