Ihla Grande is amazing!

Used to be a pirate island, then was used as a leper colony and finally as a prison until 1994... as a result, it is still relatively undeveloped. The island is covered with over 100 beaches and beautiful forest / jungle.

Spent 4 days there exploring the island. at times it really felt like we were on the set for Lost (the TV show). Especially around the abandoned prison buildings and ghost towns around the island. Very cool indeed!

The beaches were awesome too. discovered loads of amazing places, most notably Dios Rios!

Alors là je suis bluffée ces dernières photos me laisse rêveuse, dire qu'il y a encore des endroits aussi merveilleux 'l'ile vierge' .. pas de monde, pas de papiers, une eau d'une couleur extraordinaire, des petit bateaux sympas, des animaux étonnants et le sable n'en parlons pas. Toutes les photos sont très très belles, les 'minettes' aussi se fondent bien dans le paysage, et nick est toujours là présent 'zen et souriant'. C'est un vrai plaisir. Merci encore !
Ah ! j'oublie de dire que le petit chien noir et blanc me plait beaucoup alors si il y a encore de la place dans le sac à dos ???
