Ti Tou Gorge Rating: Not Rated

This was the best excursion I have ever taken. No words to describe the experience and the thrill. Water is cold - but not like Lake Superior cold, just dive in and then be ready for the whole thrill of swimming up to a waterfall. Something you won't find anywhere else.

Not a bad day at the beach - don't limit yourself to the 'developed' section, hike along the shore or in the dirt roads. Be sure to take water, no great swimming areas - also don't bother to pay the prices for Cabanas or Clam Shells. There is a good amount of free shade.

This was an easy way to see and learn about the Island. The best activity on the island is Snorkeling or diving, but I am glad I took this escape. There were plenty of stops and you could get water and even take the bus if you were tired. The bikes were not in too bad of shape, but they are mountain bikes and not road bikes so know what you're signing up for.

The shore views amazing
Goto Lake - had 2 flamingos. No one seems to know why, but flamingos are rare these days.

The final stop in Rincon - fun and be adventurous and try the cactus liquor.

I took the Mi Dushi cruise. Nothing wrong with the crew or boat, but it did not live up to my expectation of being on a sail boat. We were there on windy day - so water was choppy and visibility poor. The lunch was really good!

If you want a relaxed day on the water take this trip, if you want snorkel and fish - well I wish I had done snorkel in Bonaire.

Hiking Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

It was 'dry' when we hiked and this is the most demanding excursion I have attended. I'm younger than most cruises (late 30's) and did not struggle, but there were many who did not take the description serious and struggled a lot.

This was very worth the mud and sweat. Water is comfortable, warning for poor swimmers - take a flotation device and you will enjoy the experience. Snorkel belt or small vest would have made the approach to the falls in the water easy. Also water shoes are a must.

Hike in is hard (down hill) but up took us much less time.
