Girgo great to hear your time away was good I'm leaving on th 9th, I've got a few questions. First was the internet up and running and was there a cost for use. Just want to email some pics of how good a time I'm having to my friends, ha ha. Also how was the snorkling and was there ample equipment or were you waiting for it. Did you venture into town at all. any other info would be welcomed. Looks like I just live down the road from you. Happy New Year.

Have you been to the Playa De Carman area and how that might compare? Is there a lot of beach area for long walks in the sand?

HI everyone, just to answer the questions, the internet was on and off, didn't seem to be too pricy from what I remeber but it's if you get it running that is the challenge. As for snorkelling, we bring our own stuff down, seemed like there were people using gear all the time. As for the weather, on and off rain, nothing to worry about, it goes by real fast, about 10 minutes, we only had one day of real rain and overcast, you can still get a tan through the clouds, as my husband said, it looks like he brought a local back!

For more info check out my review, I poted yesterday! Any other questions I'd be more than happy to answer them!

Happy new year! Respect!

we went shopping on a Saturday, not much to see, if you've been to one island they are all alike. I personally don't like crowds and don't like to be pulled from one hut to another. There is a craft market, enter if you are ready to be hounded.

Hi Girgo! I read your review - sounds like you had a fabulous time! Two questions: Did you fly Skyservice? Did you arrive in the evening? How was the flight?

Also, with regards to the restaurants, do you have to go to each individual restaurant to book or is there a central desk for all the reservations? Happy New Year!
