A bit pricey, but everything is provided - gourmet meals, snorkeling, intertidal walks, forest tour, drinks (not alcohol) - the staff is very helpful, accommodating, and makes the stay that more enjoyable. I loved the island, the eco-friendly bungalows, the marine protected area and the goals of Chumbe Island. Wish there were more places like this!!!
