Great trip hiking through the jungle to a cave of fresh water for swimming. So refreshing. Able to enjoy interesting facts about the culture and history of those families being relocated! Thanks to Christine for being such an excellent tour guide!!!

Had a great time here stopping with Sharky's Dive Shop for a relaxing afternoon in the pool with an open bar on the boat. Doesn't get any better than this.
