I did go during the low season but I think I may have set my expectations a little too high for this place. There’s a small “pool” area, a high dive, tables and beach chairs. It’s a lounge spot but there were no umbrellas next...More

Had to take the taxi to get there from the water taxi station. Great place to enjoy the sun, food and drink. You can even see multiple fish while swimming in the area. This is not a beach though.

The Split is a great place for photos and hanging out. My wife got a massage on the beach with the ocean breeze blowing in, she enjoyed every minute.

We were able to do this trip affordably and still had a lot of fun. We had 2 days of rain but found it didn't bother us at all. The puddles turn the color of milk. The rainforest was not available because of the mosquitos...More

It is a vary of things to do at this location. This area is serviced by the local spot! The water could be rough and you should stay and tan!

Hi there! I would say you could definitely spend 9 days if you're going to do excursions off the island like going to Mayan ruins, cave tubbing or snorkeling. The island is beautiful and you'll have an amazing time, but 9... More
