The apartments here are very nice. Facilities include a nice pool and BBQ's and lovely maintained gardens. Although a little out of the main city centre (approx) 14klms, it suited out needs and we were able to negotiate the public transport by bus into town almost daily. It was easy although a little expensive
It's also very quiet at the resort and good for families.

... Once we had completed the rainforest section we gradually made our way through the other sections of the gardens again just in awe at the colours and variation of the plants and wildlife we saw.

Went on river boat trip where we saw the crocodiles then went to waterfalls where we could go for a swim. I chatted to a few people. I was the newbie.

It is lush, green and rich farmlands and countryside interspersed with rainforests. It is a vista of rolling green hills, with a patchwork of fields under various stages of cultivation. it reminded us a little of the Cotswolds in the UK. Of course we have taken far too many ...
... a walk around the harbour before heading to the hostel, sunbathing by the pool and chatting to a Finnish girl who had moved in. We ended the day by going for a couple of drinks (I could finally face it again but only low alcoholic beer) in the local Irish bar.
Thursday was the big day - the trip to the reef! I checked in at the terminal, got onto the boat, was given my flippers and snorkel, helped myself to a complimentary coffee then plonked myself down next to two girls from ...
... mall food court to refill. However, it wasn't meant to be as the kitchen in the Italian restaurant had already closed for day and one of the shops had run out of baked potatoes. Neither of us fancied McDonald's or subway again so we ventured into town and found a popular bar/restaurant which served various food including a halloumi burger with homemade cherry tomato salsa and alioli! That was lunch/dinner sorted! And I'm pleased to report it was as good as it ...
