    We arriaved by plane and took a bus, then a short boat ride and then a taxi which was all set up ahead of time. I would assume you could take a taxi from the marina that you come into

    Our mattresses are the Chaide & Chaide Suave Brisa model. They are semi-orthopedic which means you get both comfort and support.
