I walked outside the port and found a taxi. They charged $90 for a tour of the west end, but I was able to share the cab with two other people. The cab driver showed us everything, took us to see many nice sites, and even took us to a gift shop run by some of his family! We went to many nice places and I had a fully enjoyable stay. I held a sloth, I had monkeys climb on me and we had gigantic birds on our arms. It was a great trip. Read Less

The ship did not dock until 12 noon!!! Once we disembarked, we had to literally walk a half mile to the meeting point for our excursion...and the excursion had to be cut short because there was not enough time in port to do all of the things on the tour. And Coxen Hole was on the opposite side of the island from Mahogany Bay...so the first part of the excursion was spent touring the poorest, non-scenic sections on the island...unpleasant and wasted time.

Tour of the animal sanctuary and city tour. Ended at a private beach. Lovely tour ($65) for the entire day. Saw a lot of the island. Sanctuary was way better than I thought it could be and we got to hug sloths :-)

We had opted for the Beach excursion on a previous visit and would recommend that. Nice beach and great snorkeling. Getting to the beach about 30 min. away provides an island tour in itself.

Our driver/guide, Courtney, took us all around the island and gave us in depth information about life there. He was a great guide & took us to the Monkey & Sloth Sanctuary and a mangrove swamp tour. Like so many of the countries in the islands & Central America, there is a lot of poverty and a lack of opportunities for the residents, which is rather depressing to see. The island is lovely & the winter weather is enviable to a person from the north. Read Less
