our resort was right on the beach - gorgeous!
The water was so warm & clear there it was amazing!
Although I HATE open water & fish, I decided to be tough and try out this snorkeling excursion Kalvin wanted to go on [great wife, i know]. It was really cool, lots of pretty fish but... I stayed in the boat on the last stop, I had enough fishies.
On the third day, we rented a car and drove around the island! We stopped at a bunch of little beaches and huts. Our main visit was to Punta Sur, where were able to go to the top of this old lighthouse. The view was incredible!
We were told by friends Coconuts Bar was a must! It was this bar located right on the side of the cliff, overlooking the ocean. It definitely more of an "adult" bar but it was delicious! Just don't open any photo books they bring around... you'll see some coconuts for sure!
Through the entire trip all I wanted to do was drink from a coconut. I was pretty stoked when they brought out a bunch of coconuts to the pool and started cutting them up!
The drinks were soo good there. I am pretty sure I lived off of Banana Mama's all week.
We also took a ride around the south side of the island on that cute little sailboat! Because of Kalvin spoke Spanish, we were able to get so many hooks up, like an extra long ride to a private beach!
We also visited the Mayan Ruins!
