Beautiful island and as close to paradise as you can probably get. Stopped off after snorkeling for a much earned rest. Beautiful beach. Lots of hermit crabs. Lovely

There was a boat ride, snorkel, snack, boat ride, snorkel, lunch, boat ride to make for a lovely day. The guide, Carol, was terrific and adorable. The water was warm even though it was a rainy day.

The snorkeling was great! We saw three turtles and many fish and the visibility was probably around 30ft. From the boat, the captain spotted a whale and her calf, dolphins, and a large turtle, so that was an unexpected and wonderful bonus. The beach we...More
