Back at the dock - we shed tears of good bye and stopped at Cuban Coffee Queen for a pick me up. Straight to the hotel - each one of us burnt to a crisp all in different places.

We saw some beautiful fish and stunning corral structures through the glass-bottom of the boat and later when we where snorkeling.
