We had an absolute ball on our tour of Maria Island. We also had a tour guide that showed us every crack and crevice of this beautiful island. I highly recommend a visit.

We could have walked to this place from Coconut Bay Hotel. I believe they are closed for a large chunk of December, so email early to get your reservation. You start out getting yourself into a very old boat. Don’t expect fancy, this is an...More

If you like nature, outdoors and the beach, this is the place. Just of the coast, friendly locals, the village is picturesque and very relaxing. Good places to eat within minutes of the reserve! Birds and a variety of other flora and fauna!

I believe we had an hour or so but I think that has a lot to do the size of the group and how long it takes to do the hike.....

I would be really hesitant to bring my five year old. It's a steep path and the cactus are ferocious.... Hope this is helpful....
