Palomino Island

Isla Palomino is the largest of three private islands near Puerto Rico, the other two being Isla de Ramos and Isla de Lobos. The island is owned by the descendants of Alberto Bachman Glauser, the Bachman Family and the Fuertes Bachman Family. The El Conquistador Resort has rented the eastern side of the island for their guests. The El Conquistador Hotel no longer offers a Palomino Island Day Pass.
