During this part of the trip, Chris and I finally attended his cousin’s wedding. The day after the wedding I joined Chris’ cousins and we took a boat ride over to Coffin Island also known as Isla Caja de Muertos with Island Venture where we spent the day.
We arrived at the boat which was docking in Ponce and left at approximately 8:30 am. The Island Venture boat crew were unable to find our reservation but luckily they had just enough space for myself, Chris’ cousins and their children who I referred to as my adopted family. They allowed us to pay for our ticket on the boat which for adults it was $28.00 USD and for the children it was $23.50 USD. They let us know that since we received the “economic” pricing many things were not included such as food, snacks, drinks, beach umbrellas, kayaks, paddle boards and beach chairs. They offered other packages such as their Deluxe and VIP which included many of these things. We ended up purchasing skewers (pinchos) for $3.00 and hotdogs for $2.00.
During this time we were able to snorkel around the clear blue waters and reefs. There were also museums that visitors have a chance to learn about the history of the island as well as paths that led to the lighthouse but unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to check them out.
We left the island around 4 pm and headed back and checked out the little beach boardwalk which was lined with music and various restaurants.
