We did some snorkeling and it was good to get back in the water again. The water here is incredibly clear. There is a small resort, Plantation Beach Resort, on the big island (Cochinos Grande). We've met the manager Rio and divemaster Will. We've had a few beers there, but the dinners are too pricey for our budget. The resort is lovely with lots of beautiful wooden cabins and native landscaping. Unfortunately, when we head in for a sunset drink – the bugs are also out. Lots of local tour boats come into the area daily – many stop on the nearby beaches, some go to the resort. They stay for a bit and then take-off again. They come from the mainland about 20 miles away.
We're still making plans for the Kathryn and Mark visit here in a few weeks and really looking forward to it. The weather of course has been perfect and we hope it remains that way for their visit – they deserve a rainfree one this time.
