We are headed to Sandals Emerald Bay from December 16-23 and can't wait to behold the beauty of The Out Islands. We've already been in touch with Captain Pat of Four C's to take the 007 tour and plan on renting a car for at least one day to explore. This trip is a bit of a splurge for us and while we planned to return to Costa Rica this year, something about Exuma called out to us! :)
What seems to be missing from our week-long plans is an opportunity to "give back" to the islands. Sandals offers a "Reading Road Trip" tour that involves visiting a school and donating books, but school will be out for the holidays at the time of our visit.
Are there any other opportunities to volunteer on the islands the week before Christmas? Or is there anything specific needed that we could bring from Canada that can't be easily acquired in Exuma?
Simply put, I would feel selfish if I visited and didn't try to give back. I'll be bringing a few children's books to give to the local library but any other tips are greatly appreciated!
Thanks as always Trip Advisors!
