Do your research before you make your reservation. Our hotel was super crappy. The couple in the room next to us was fighting and then love making and it shook the whole place. Investiguen antes de ir. Nuestro hotel fue malo, pero deberia de haber mejores hoteles en la isla.

Calm serene beach, nice cool little island that this beach is at.The drive is 2 hours from the city and the boat ride to the island is quick and nice. I really enjoyed it and would love to venture there again.

When I was there - 30 years ago - there was no electricity and no drinking water - it was a tropical paradise.
