One of the most amazing islands in the world, for sure the best in the caribeans. The colours are astonishing, you can't have enough

Most of the trips will take you to Crab Cay and this place is absolutely stunning, as is the rest of the national park. There are several places you can swim, snorkel and see beautiful sealife including turtles. I highly recommend this place.

This place is amazing, beautiful crystal clear water, we saw rays and turtles, but there weren't as many fish as we expected and the coral definitely looks stressed. I hate to think what will happen if they ever embrace tourism in this area.

We drove in saw no one. Walked around for a bit but saw nothing very interesting. Don't know if it was in the process of being build up or running down!

This is a place where you can find excellent places to do snorkeling, where you can spot al kinds of fishes, in really clear waters. Even if it rains, it's a great plan.
