As for the excursion - we took a shuttle for $3, round trip to a tour place in town. Once our there you can walk to town and the shuttles run back to the ship every 15 minutes. It was clean and they were friendly. They spoke great english. We elected to do an excursion with them for $18 a person to the blow hole, since there were 49 of us, they put us all on our own bus with a tour guide. It was nice.
