My question is about the little ship store at Jug Creek Marina, does anyone know if they sell butane/propane for small camp stove? I don't have a lot of time to catch the ferry, so I was hoping to cut out an extra stop. And I only need a canister

We paid $32 per person, round trip to Cayo Costa. Well worth it if you want to lay in the sun, go shelling, swim. Nothing there though so take whatever (picnic, chairs...) you want to have while there.
