Terrible. Actually, there is no welcome center. The beaches are downbeat. It is a tourist trap. The service is terrible as well. I cannot think about a single thing that I've liked in Isla Contadora.

It was a really nice vacation. Beautiful beaches. But everything is extremely expensive. They don't have a port, if you came with the ferry you have to go down to a boat. If you are young, it's not a problem, but it you are older...More
