Beautiful tropical rain forest and rural Dominican countryside. Went on the "jeep" tour excursion...which is actually an open bus which takes you to a number of different sites across the island...such as fresh cocoa sampling shop and a waterfall and rustic beach. I absolutely loved this tour. So much to see from the "jeep".

I honestly don't know why this is a stop. I felt like we deserved our money back from Norwegian. It has a very unsafe feeling, and there really is nothing to do. Our two year old son was with us. The kids followed him around trying to take his sippy cup. We ended up going back to the ship early.

This is our second time here and there's not much to do. Kind of a scummy port. We did buy some art work in the market down the street but that's it. Broken roads, non existent sidewalks etc. You get the picture.

Not worth stopping here. Very little to do as far as shopping or dining in the town. It looked like a very depressed area with stray dogs & horses just roaming around.

We visited this island on a Wednesday or Sunday. When we got to the port area off the ship we were told many shops wouldn't be opening today because of religious reasons. We were bombarded by kids trying to sell my wife flowers the whole time we were walking along side the port. The port area was so bad that we decided to go back on the ship. We would definitely need to do a excursion if we ever end up here again. But we have no desire to visit again

Went to the whale 'museum'. $3.00 admission. Small but had a nice skeleton of a humpback and some interesting pictures and information. Had a nice walk back to the tender pick up area, avoided most of the horse droppings along the way. Weather was very warm for November. I would like to return when whales are in the area. Jan-Feb.
