My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We stayed in the room on the second floor; the view of the beach, dock and the sea was always spectacular. Swimming was good, snorkeling excellent - you can access a few small reefs from the shore if you're a reasonable swimmer. We saw a lot of fish, moray eels, trunk fish and many other sea creatures I have no names for.
We only used the kayaks a couple of times and it was a lot of fun!
We took two boat trips to snorkel and to see manatees in the mangroves - we were lucky! We saw 3 manatees - what a great experience to see these magnificently quiet beings...
If you're NOT into busy resort with night life - this is a perfect place to spend quiet and active (or lazy) vacation.
Reading a book in the hammock on the balcony was one of the highlights for me.
Caroline and Bob were very helpful with their suggestions, recommendations and information.
