This place is also considered the best snorkeling and diving area of the country, especially because of the visibility of about 20 meters deep (65 feet). In the crystal clear waters lives a great variety of different species such as: turtles, whales and reef sharks. Also, a quiet path on the island will lead you on a beautiful walk exploring the island. Caño Island is also known for being an ancient indigenous cemetery.

The ranger station provides visitor information, outdoor fresh water showers and bathrooms. There are picnic tables on the beachfront and hammocks. Reservations are required as limited amounts of visitors are permitted daily. There are no overnight facilities on the island. Camping is not permitted.
