Went two days from club med, had a great time. Excellent service, great drinks, nice snorkelling. Tough surf on the snorkelling side and lots of coral bits to rip up your feet. Wear swimming shoes or flippers. Great food too! Fish tacos and shrimp tacos...More

The water taxis were running non stop as far as I could tell. Steady boats. As for a road taxi to la playa linda, pick a time you'd like to return with cab driver. He'll meet you back at the pier when ur ready. Better yet... More
