Periquito is a paradisiacal island situated near Cholón-Barú. It is the only island in the area with its own hill, with an elevation of more than 50m above sea level. It has a rocky geology and abundant vegetation. Its house is simple, but elegant, with a Greek-style and a spiral form where one can find three lovely main rooms. Right above the water is “the Tambo”, a wood bungalow with a deck and a small dock, where one can enjoy meals looking out at the sea.

The main activity is taking advantage of its clear turquoise water as the floor in front of Periquito is sandy and shallow enough to be able to stand easily. The island has kayaks and snorkeling equipment for your enjoyment.

You will also find a hammock area, especially recommended for resting after lunch, where you can enjoy reading and napping, but for those who wish to continue with other activities there is a petanque/boules court.

Other activities and sports nearby: the Oceanarium in Isla Grande is only 25 min away; the National Aviary is 30 min away, as well as the possibility of renting various water sport toys just 5 min away in Cholon. There is also the option of scuba diving in Punta Barú with a professional company that can be booked for you.

The local fauna that inhabit the island are mostly birds such as the great-tailed grackle, Inca Dove, swallow, hummingbird, pelican, and earwing. You can also find iguanas, land and marine crabs, as well as hermit crabs.

The owner's principal philosophy on the island is to intervene as little as possible, so that future generations will be able to enjoy this natural paradise.
