Took the waterfall tour. Since it was during the dry season, the the waterfalls had little to no water! The walk in the jungle going to and coming from the waterfalls was very interesting. No time to do any restaurants or shopping due to the length of time in port.

We didn't venture too far from the ship, just shopped at the port and back on the ship..again book an excursion with the cruise ship to feel safe and secure on this island too.

Not Good

We took the city tour which was depressing. While we do have an interest in the poverty we saw, our vacation cruise was not the venue for it. The tour ended at a local resort which demonstrated a large disparity in wealth disbursement but we couldn't help but feel uncomfortable knowing about the hardship that was only a mile away.

If you have to book any excursions outside of the cruise line, avoid Happy Fish Travel. The tour guide was great but the booking staff at the port were rude, disorganized, and overcharged me when they "converted" the trip costs into the local currency to bill my credit card.
