Beautiful!

A walk around the island is great, the water is pristine there! Remember the name of your boat, key!

The small island (1.5 km) is actually really beautiful, and it has some restaurants and beverages places, but when it comes to the transport taking you there and back to San Andrés... a complete mess! be aware of the people that go with you in the boat and also it's name (and all the hours they say - only in...

What can I say, everything about San Andreas And Johnny Kay is no exception! Beautiful lush foliage, inviting golden sand beaches. Plenty of gorgeous iguanas and lizards. Food and drink galore and out of this world swimming in the inviting blue/green Caribbean

This island is not far away from mainland San Andres. You can combine your visit with Acuario too. Again, very crowded but if you can manage your spot you are good to go.

We loved our visit to Jonny Cay. We purchased round trip boat transportation from a beach hut in San Andreas. The boats seem to leave regularly, but on return there are specific times. When you arrive your boat is greeted by a host and a representative collecting a 5k peso tax for visiting the island. Our host was able to... More

I took a rough boat trip for 15,000 pesos to see one of San Andres' satellite islands called Johnny Cay. When I arrived I rented two chairs and an umbrella. The service happened right away and fast. I was able to order beers, juices, coconut cocktails, and most of fresh lobster or fish. It was a day well spent at... More

Very nice island but the locals try to get your money by acting as host and guide for everything you want to do including getting food and drinks or rides. Want to see the island? Do it yourself.
