We paid $60 for a boat from Arenal beach, and $10 each entry fee to the island. So worth it! We swam with shoals of about 50 fish, each at least half a metre in size! So many different types, and all so big too! If you're a fan of snorkelling, definitely do this! A little tip, buy a polystyrene... More

We took a 30 minute boat ride over to the island for the day. We packed a lunch and spent the day snorkeling and hiking around the island. When we arrived early in the morning, we were the only ones there. By the time we left in the afternoon, 19 other boats had come in. It was well worth the... More

Loved the trip to the island where we spent a peaceful day snorkeling and swimming and exploring and relaxing under the trees on the beach. Our trip included snorkeling equipment, sandwiches and cool drinks and water. The island is near pristine and lots of corals and fish can be seen.

One of the most beautiful island in Panamanians pacific, a must to visit when you are going to Pedasi, or Playa Venado, you will need a boat to reach it, and it is ideal for a day trip. Only 20 minutes from the shore.

Went there on a day trip with my family. Excellent beach, great snorkeling, beautiful surroundings. The bad part is that a boat had loud music the whole day spoiling a little bit the trip. Just 15 mins from the shore by boat.

We have lived in the area for some time now and decided that we wanted to visit Isla Iguana. Craig and April who own and operate Casa Lajagua in Pedasi organized our trip for us. This turned out to be a very good idea. We drove to the beach. An immigration officer was at the Police station at the beach... More

It's a very nice place to relax and to be in a brighter sand that you can find in the coast. On the way to the island, which you leave on a small boat, you can see whales. The cost of the boat to the island is around 60 dollars up to 6 people, round trip. Bring food and water!
