AAA Editor Notes
Garrafón Park is at the southern end of the island off Carretera Garrafón, Km marker 6. This “natural park” is a haven for multicolored tropical fish that can be seen in calm, clear water with an average depth of 13 feet. Ziplines allow thrill seekers to skim above the island's coastal cliffs. Garrafón's swimming pool has a waterfall and a view of the Caribbean. Two ocean platforms anchored to a sandy bottom near the reef, one for sunbathers and one with a diving board, are connected by ropes that can be crossed “monkey” style, walking on one while hanging on to the other.
If all this sounds too strenuous, relax in the shady Garden of Hammocks and listen to the breeze rustling the palm fronds. In order to protect the environment, use of biodegradable sunscreen (available at the park's gift shops) is advised.
Locker rooms and showers are provided.
Picnicking is permitted. Food is available. Time: Allow 4 hours minimum.
