We were off the ship early, and have been here many times before. We were handed a free drink coupon from Margaritaville and decided to head over there before the crowds and check it out. Enjoyed some nice conch fritters and some average calamari along with the drinks. Shopped a bit and headed back to enjoy the quiet time on the ship.
We joined our cruise neighbors for an island tour and lucked into just the right guide. We were in an a beautiful airconditioned SUV, with leather seats for our island tour. We went to the light house, rock formations, and through a gated community where I picked out a beautiful 6 million dollar house as my dream vacation home.
At one point down in the caves they turn off all the lights, this can be frightening for little ones so you might want to warn them in advance. The lights are only off briefly, but it is pitch black with them off. There are also small fruit bats in the caves. Flash photography isn't allowed, but there is one room near the end that is bright and good for taking pictures. We enjoyed the tour and really did learn a lot from our guide.
Ostrich Farm Rating:
General stop where you see a couple different types of Ostriches, and see them at different stages of their life...the little ones are so cute. You are given a jeep ride around and one stop you can feed them and take pictures. The last stop you can stand on an ostrich egg. Also check out some of the other animals on the farm, pigs, minature horses, iguanas, ducks, birds, and a few others too.
