We booked our excursion with Runners Adventures. The service was great. Drinking champagne in a natural ocean pool and snorkeling with tropical fish was truly phenomenal! The lunch was delicious, pork chop, salad and Lobster tails! Very tasty. I highly recommend this tour. We also did the Runners Safari tour, which I will post a review for as well...

This place is beautiful! It's more a sandbar than an island but beautiful non the less! We booked through someone on the beach and paid $40usd per person. We were on the same bus as the people who bought through the resort that paid $80usd per person. We took the 3h bus ride to the island. Tour rep does a... More

We got off the Catamaran and enjoyed champagne in the natural pool in the middle of nowhere. It was such an amazing experience. Spent some time there and then we headed... More

First I want to say that depending on where you are staying you bus ride could be around 3 hours each way. But worth every minute we spent there...It is utterly breathtaking.. And people when your tour guide asks you NOT to put beach towels on the sand DON'T..Some people are just oblivious to how much damage it does!!! We... More
