Where I stayed
This past weekend we took a one day cruise out to a coral island in the ocean. It wasn't a long cruise but it was really cool. You go through a mangrove forest down the river out to the ocean. Then it's like a 1 hour cruise to the island. It's a sandy island where the river had emptied out and gotten caught up on the coral
It was a long walk out to a tidal pool where the guide let us feed the fish. Then there was a little bit of a race to beat the tide back to the boat. Once we got back on the boat, we went back to the river entrance and docked at the mangrove forest. There was an elevated walkway to the mainland to this little restaraunt. The food was ok...nothing to really get you excited. But they did have lots of hammocks hung in groups, so you could lounge in a hammock and talk with people.
After everyone had digested for a little while, we headed out to go back upriver to another island to play in "healthy" mud. But the motor on the boat broke down and we ended up having to jump ship (to another boat). Then a nice little storm blew in and we headed back to port. Overall it was a fun day. Got a little sunburn(in small patches) and Jacqui got a cut up foot from the coral (I didn't, HOORAY for calluses!). Enjoy the pics
