While making a delivery of a yacht from Florida to California we stopped here to refuel and take a break. We had been at sea for 6 days and needed rest and relaxation. Though it was a very tough entry through the breakwater (BMC provided a pilot) it was well worth it. Very secluded and very quiet!! With a beautiful view of surrounding volcanos. The check in with the office and all the country officials (customs, immigration) was easy and extremely painless. All the people here are really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They even drove us into town to resupply free of charge, and that doesn't happen anywhere! We did not try the dining, because I am the yacht chef but the pool and the rest of the facilities looked wonderful. Great place to really get away from it all!
