Had been to Isla del Sol and was very disappointed - especially the nonexistent beach and horrible food. Isla del Encanto was much better. The same drill - taxi to the boat, chaos at the pier (but Encanto was actually pretty well organized), speed boat ride at 9 am or so to the island, arrive at 10-10:30 and hang out by beach and pool or go snorkeling (which was apparently great), eat lunch, boat back at 3. Encanto has a nice beach - much bigger than Sol. The food (while hardly great) was decent. Staff seemed better, more organized, a bit less gimmicky. A nice day trip.
