... We are not allowed to take any food onto the island or venture off on any trails, nor are there any toilet facilities for us to use. We are only permitted to wait on the beach until it is time to leave. The Rangers really don't want us to leave any impact on the island!
After our dives, we go to San Josecito beach back on the mainland. The lunch provided by Drake Divers is awesome! It's a buffet DIY sandwich bar with the ...

To add to the insult, we checked and this restaurant is rated No. 1 of all restaurants in Jiminez on Tripadvisor! The colossal salad was terrific though. All things considered we opted not to eat out again and instead to make use of our room's fridge and eat in most of the time, which we did.
There's not much more to report about our time ...
