One day we hired a golf cart for a couple of hours, at 300 pesos (just over a tenner) to explore the rest of the island as we didn't fancy cycling in the heat. It was our first time in a golf cart and after seeing kids driving them about we thought ...

I managed to keep the seat next to me vacant by playing "sleep" multiple times and others just looking out the window with my bag next to me, unfortunately I was eventually sprung in my last 45mins but I am definitely getting better. The boat ride was about 30 minutes and took us right into the rain. ...
