The resort was small and had a diverse group of travelers. Backpackers to families, it was ever changing. The food was amazing and the snorkeling was by far the most beautiful we have yet to see
We met many people the 5 days we were there, all traveling for their winter holiday. Their seasons are just opposite of ours so we are traveling during Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand's winter/ spring season. It is nice because it is not crowded, and the temperature is perfect, 70's- 80's. They also call any vacation a holiday, weather it is a few days to many months; and most people are traveling weeks to months at a time. It is apparently not uncommon in most countries to travel for months at a time. They were always amazed at America's normal 2 week vacation per year. We learned that most New Zealander's go on a "OE" after high school, which is an overseas experience. This is a working holiday that lasts at least one year and may extend to many years before going back to Uni (which is their term for college or university.) Pretty crazy huh? See folks our excursion is really just a mini holiday to most of the world :)
