View of Caja de Muertos, from Ponce Hilton...! The most clean and crystal clear waters in Puerto Rico...! A must go...! However, it is only one way at 0830 hrs and returning after 1500 hrs...! no in between.... not all day back and forward trips....!

A beautiful beach and a great staff made this one of the most enjoyable vacation experiences I've had in a while. If you like sandy blue beaches, warm waters and group of guys that'll make you feel like you were born on this paradise, this trip is for you. Drinks and food were a bit overpriced and the top deck... More

My sister in law wanted a simple beach wedding and that beach is gorgeous. The ferry boat was rented for the guests and we went with nice summer dress and after that enjoyed the beach. It is very well kept. And the people from natural resources were very kind

This trip is a must if you are in a couple, or with friends and family! Please bring sunscreen, beach and umbrella (although those last two are for rent). Its relaxing and exciting! The beach is superb and the staff is great!

My wife and I frequently travel to Puerto Rico and each time we have tried to schedule the trip to Isla de Caja Muertos, but it is always sold out. We scheduled our trip to this island 7 months before arriving to PR. The boat ride out was ok, but when we arrived we weren't prepared for all of the... More

The cruise to get there is a little overpriced, but the only one available, unless you find someone with a private boat to take you. The beaches are beautiful and the picnic area is clean. The view from the lighthouse is breathtaking. Make sure to wear shoes for this short hike, the rocks are coral and very sharp. We were... More
