Cayo Arena. Photo and caption by David Pou
Cayo Arena is a beautiful sandbar 10 kilometers into the middle of the Atlantic off the coast of Punta Rucia. It’s often called Paradise Island by tour guides, and it is easy to understand why. Ultra-white sand gently slopes into the mind-bendingly clear turquoise water, where snorkeling is good due to coral reefs making a home for schools of fish that could quite possibly eat out of your hand. It is difficult to say how big the “island” is because it shrinks and expands depending on the season and the ocean’s currents.

A very common fish that you'll see at Neptune Reef is the Bar Jack fish. 

Bar Jacks are a moderately large species, growing to a recorded maximum length of 69 cm, and a weight of 6.8 kg, but are commonly encountered at lengths of less than 40 cm.

Interestingly, a Bar Jack sometimes can have a foraging relationship with a Wrasse. For example, while foraging with a Wrasse, a Jack increases its prey detection levels, which is useful for a species that is more adept at pelagic hunting, allowing it to be more efficient at this less common mode of food gathering.
