The best way to enjoy this island is by staying at the Hotel El Conquistador in Fajardo. They will have all day trips to the island where you can enjoy one of the most beautiful little islands of Puerto Rico. You wont regret it

the resort, El Conquistador is spectacular, the ferry ride to Palomino is also great but, just a mission.. and the beach idea is perfect but, just wish it didn't have jelly fish and water didn't have the seaweed at the edge. otherwise its great!
