There was an open bar that had large horse flies (or bees?) swarming around it. The drinks were fruity but did not seem to have much rum in them. You had an option of a margarita or fruit punch on ice. After trying the margarita, I stuck with the beer. There was also a cash bar available. Although there were not many people as compared to what the island was prepared for, they ran out of food a few times and what they had was not that good. I was very happy to have papaya and nachos with fresh guacamole and salsa!
It would have been nice to have some type of music on the beach. The only music that could be heard was from the radio behind the cash bar which was for the enjoyment of the bartender only.
Carnival Glory was also in port with us. Their travellers showed up on 360 boats which looked like a blast! We didn't have that option. If we did... this trip would have been worth the $$$.
There was food to buy on the island but it was not good. Cocktails were also available at reasonable prices. Make sure to try one of the cocktails in a coconut or pineapple shell!
At points during your visit you can have your picture taken with a parrot, a spider monkey and/or a sea lion. It's definitely an experience to be kissed by a sea lion but that fish breath is not as pleasant - lol. No fear... you can dive right back in the water afterwards.
