Good morning, you can do some snorkeling in front of the hotel, but there isn't too many different types of fish and coral to see. That's why we always recommend to book a snorkeling trip.

Good morning, the average massage is between $40 and $50 per hour. Prices may vary depending on the packages booked. I can only recommend them, they're very professional therapists and will make you feel like new again ;)
