I've been here before but never taken an organized tour. If you just like to relax, take a taxi down to 7 mile beach and grab your own private spot. For those that like shopping, there are many tourist stores. However, I do recommend a Stingray/snorkeling tour. Even with beginner to moderate swimmers, lightweight preservers are mandatory so all are safe. You will see many friendly stingray and they seem to know there is no danger to them. They are free to come and go off this sandbar and always manage to grab some squid chum. To my knowlege, there has never been any bad incident. They welcomed people and didn't mind being touched. Those that didn't want to be touched just cruised on by you.

We thought the turtle farm was really interesting, as we are nature lovers. We had our picture taken holding the sea turtles (you can also take them with your own camera, and aren't obligated to buy theirs) The dowtown area had lots of good shopping. The town of "Hell" is a waste of time, although the rock formations are interesting. We had more interest in this huge lizard that was in the tree overlooking the rock formations!

Not a very pretty port. If shopping in port go up the side streets for better deals. Get as far away as possible on the excursion.

We enjoyed Tortuga Rum Factory and even Turtle Farm. The stop at "Hell" is a waste of your time and money. Of all our stops, this was our least favorite. It is beautiful, but very touristy and more expensive than other stops.

The 7 mile beach would be my choice there. We took a bus tour that I felt was a waste of time and money. Don't need to have a bus to go to souvenir shops. There was no time to do anything else.

Make sure you book an excursion if you want to go snorkeling. We waited and thought we could do better on our own. They will not take you unless you book through the cruise line...they have an agreement.

We went to 7 mile beach and had a nice day on our own. We rented some beach toys and my daughter got her hair braided (great price of $10). The island is still recovering from Hurrican Ivan.
