  • It was an unforgettable experience. We went catamaran with great animation and all inclusive. You can eat lobster for 15 pesos. I tried to interact with dolphins (85 weights) but they offered me for 35 pesos more to swim with them and the truth is that it is the best decision I have ever had. Swimming with dolphins is freaky. I recommend it.

  • We made a trip there by catamaran. On arrival there were already three catamarans on the shore, accordingly all the loungers on the beach were already occupied and shade places could be counted on the hand. We found two loungers at the very back of the "meadow" and then lay there quite away from everything but not quite under palm trees in the blazing sun at lunchtime. The beach was okay, many smaller stones were in the water which made running in the water uncomfortable. Swimming would have been an alternative, but the water wasn't deep enough. The beach at our hotel was nicer I must say. I wanted to represent my legs a bit after lunch, but unfortunately this was only possible to a very limited extent because only a small corner of the island is "walkable". On one side are the boats and on the other side is bushes, roots, trees. That was a pity. FAZIT: Anyone who knows other Caribbean islands (e.g. in the Dom Rep or Mexico) will be disappointed by this here. But the catamaran tour was great, our animator on the boat was just great. Nice, likeable and has made mood. Thumbs up for sexy chocolate! :-)
