There are two daily treasure chests that you can find on the Cayo Perico island while scoping it out. The chest spawn locations are fixed, but they always spawn in completely random order.
One chest always spawns on land, and the other always spawns underwater. Each chest rewards you with GTA$15,000 and 1,000 RP. This means you can get a total of GTA$30,000 and 2,000 RP daily.
There are 19 possible treasure chest locations around the island - 10 on land and 9 underwater. Once collected, the treasure chests spawn back in a random different location after 24 hours have passed (real-time).
In this guide, we show you all the 19 possible spawn locations. Feel free to check out our video guide as well.
There are 10 possible land locations.
The chest location is in the North Dock area. You will find it at the end of the road that goes around the North Dock.
This chest can be found resting by some water containers at the end of the runway.
This chest location is directly north of the runway in the wide-open area.
This chest location is south of the solar panel farm by the beach. You will find some wooden boats by the shore. The box is in the middle of two boats.
This location is at the Northern Drop Zone near the small cabin.
You can find this one in the middle of the beach, located east of the central small dock found in the island's middle.
You can find this chest near the air defense system located at the island's very eastern section.
This chest is found at the south drop zone.
This chest location is by El Rubio's western compound barrier or fence wall.
You can find it by the crane at the Main Dock.
There are 9 possible underwater locations.
You can find this chest underwater by the north drop zone. The chest will be next to a big boulder.
This one is found underwater at the end of the runway. But not the western end. You need to go underwater but in the northern direction. The chest will be next to a rock, as highlighted in the image below.
This chest is found in the underwater section between the control tower and the power station. The chest will be in a small open area surrounded by underwater grass or weed.
This location is directly south of the power plant and solar panel farm. The chest will be next to a huge boulder. It might be a bit difficult to find it as there's a lot of overgrown weed here.
This underwater location is just behind the large hangar, which is located by the runway. You will find the chest in the marked location, as shown in the image below. It is quite difficult to pinpoint these chests' exact location when underwater, the best way to find this one is to look for a huge orange-colored spore/mushroom. The chest will be next to it.
This location is just by the main security checkpoint leading you into the main operational island area. The underwater location is slightly northeast of the checkpoint. You will find the chest quite easily as it is an open underwater area with a meager number of underwater plants. The chest is also out in the open and not in the plants. It is easier to spot.
This is in the far southeastern section of the island where the lighthouse is located. For this particular location, swim by the purple spores shown in the image below. You will find the chest in a huge patch of overgrown weed and other plants. Swim around the location, and you will eventually get a prompt to collect the treasure.
This chest location is probably the easiest to find. You will find this chest underwater under the wooden dock pathway at the Main Dock.
The last underwater location is far west of the island, just outside El Rubio's compound boundary. You will find three large spores. Two of them will be dark, and one will be in a light orange color. Approach the orange one, and you should get a prompt to collect the chest. The chest is somewhere in the overgrown weed next to the orange spore.
