Took the boat to Boca Chita. It is a party island. Views from the lighthouse were great. Would be nice if the half day trip offered went to somewhere more secluded with a stop over the reef.

The light house is nice, the harbor has an interesting history, and the hike through the hardwood is okay. Overall, this is not all that exceptional as national parks go.

Our tour guides were Castle and Michelle. They were very nice and knowledgeable. The ride out to Boca Chita was stunning. Once we got there, the island was even more beautiful. Great price/value for the level of the overall experience!
