          How much are day trips from the hotel, and what is available? I'm especially interested in snorkelling, the Shimba Hills reserve and Mombasa. Thanks.

          Snorkeling was about 40$ (I'm not sure, but it was pretty cheap). Diving is 90$-100$. Prices are not always fixed. There is always room for negotiation in case they don't have enough tourists, or you are with a large group.
