We have been to Raro 3 times now and will keep coming back as often as possible. Last time there were 12 of us and we had the best 2 weeks! No-one wanted to go home and everyone is nagging me to book another trip. You can do heaps or you can do nothing, whatever suits. You step off the Vaka Villa deck right onto the sand and straight into the water. Snorkelling gear and kayaks are all provided free of charge. Unlike the resorts, we had the beach to ourselves and it was fantastic. All accomodation, airport transfers etc were very well organised and everyone we dealt with were efficient and informed and more than happy to help. Loved it!
