Free hamburgers on the trip over there - very nice but was that lunch? Nope. Dolphins followed us. they obviously knew this was a great trip. A nice snorkelling stop... More

Stunning view, white powder-like sand, warm crystal clear water. Worth the trip on a boat, great experience. Lunch provided there was average.

The beaches are amazing, the food is delicious, the lobster it´s very good. A swim in its crystal clear waters with a mojito in hand is priceless! You can see the dolphins also.

Besides the breath taking beach, this place really needs to be cleaned up. There was a lot of trash, seaweed/seaplants, dead animals and etc all washed up all around the beach. We were taking to a place just right before we got onto the island for snorkeling and the place was filled with jellyfish. The tour guides said there was... More
