Where I stayed
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!
