You will have to board a tender boat to get to the island. You may have to navigate some steps to get down to the boats and be prepared for long lines waiting to get off. But, it is worth getting off the ship. As soon as you got to the dock, there was a beach. There were several large turtles that you could see swimming in the beautiful blue water. It is also a beautiful island. There were several vendors near the dock where you could buy things. The person we had planned to take a tour with never returned so we boarded an open bus and rode around for $2.00. We were dropped off at mall and then caught a free shuttle to Walmart. It was nice sitting down and still be able to see some of the island.
