We booked a private tour with Waterland Adventures. We took a boat ride to Isla Cardona, and had the whole island to ourselves for the day. Snorkeled, explored the lighthouse, swam, and sunned. Little lizards everywhere, they are so fun to watch. Chicken skewers were great, and they served $2 beer. It was a bit hectic getting to the dock from the ship - we were only the second ship in this port so they are still new to this but will get used to it in time as they learn. Overall a good trip and would do again.

There is not much to do at the port, so one had to take an excursion which we did around the island. It was very interesting and went to the fort.
