“Fun”

We had a guide who found a puffer fish, octopus, and sea spider for us to hold. I recommend having a guide.

“Great Food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We had lunch at Lilly's on the lee side of the island, and loved it. 500 pesos bought the best seafood lunch I have had in a long time. Three lobsters, two crabs, half a dorado, and a smattering of shrimp for the two of us. We happily took some back to the hotel to enjoy for dinner. Our waiter, Carlos, was great - knowledgeable about the seafood and the area itself, and patiently put up with my terrible Spanish.

We didn't have time to enjoy any of the other attractions, like snorkeling, but certainly would if / when we go back.

“Great time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

This was part of my honeymoon trip back in 2004. It was a fun time. The snorkeling was a bit rough compared to calm Caribbean waters. But I would go again.
