This is such a beautiful area. There are opportunities to hike on islands, hike to waterfalls, hike to mangrove areas, hike to a wonderful viewpoint of the harbor. kayak, do other boat tours, enjoy the beach. You can be active, or you can relax. Everything is easy to do, and within a short driving distance.
