This private island is a beautiful paradise. I had the chance to rent a wave runner and had a blast. Service was good and the view was out of this world.

Though I am not happy with my stay at El Conquistador, but I am happy that I was able to visit Palomino Island. It is the best Island/Beach we visited. We went there for our 1st anniversary and the beach gave us unforgettable memories.
