we spent one week on the island.
as I like the caribbean calmer waters I chose to stay in the west coast(but I found on july that the south coast beaches were pretty calm).opted to stay in the Beach View hotel to do some self-catering.it was fantastic making some rum cocktails while enjoying the sea view from our roomy balcony.I may declare it is a real smart choice on the WC hotels.
transportation:first we tried the yellow buses enjoying the loud music,then we toured the north and east coast with sanjay(taxicabby),reliable and knowledgeable.then we hired a car
for three days(driving on the left hand side was much easier than I
inicially thought).the only downside was that I missed more sidewalks.
supermarkets:we went to jordans and super center both near our hotel.at SC we found better variety and bought delicious rotis.
restaurants and bars:we went to the cliff just to appreciate the
setting and atmosphere where we drank pina coladas.we enjoyed
a great dinner at the Beach House restaurant,went to Cutters, a cozy place,Shoreside bar for good rum punches and so on...
we snorkelled near the Beach View hotel and was amazing.
I do not want to annoy you extending too much this report.
I would like to express my gratitude to all TA members that provided
us a wealth of information.adorable holidays! cheers! David,Sao Paulo.
