Welcome to Isla Mancarroncito
Across a narrow strait from Isla Mancarrón’s western shore is this small, rocky jewel thick with the last stands of primary forest in the archipelago. Loma San Antonio, a 15m boulder, protrudes from a hill on the eastern shore. Local legend has it that brujas (witches – not the good kind) once lived in the caves at the top of the cliff, which may explain why the island is still so wild. There are exploratory trails on the island (admission US$5) which are maintained by the local biological station and guides can be arranged for US$18 per group.
