Off the east coast of Puerto Rico, the snorkeling off Monkey Island (aka Cayo Santiago) is known for its scenic Monkey Reef. Cayo Santiago is home to over 1,200 Rhesus monkeys used in research, so the island is off-limits to visitors.

To reach Puerto Rico by air, fly into Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU).

Overall, Monkey Island is the 9th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 17 snorkeling dives in Puerto Rico.
