Loved it, loved it, loved it.
Easily the most relaxing vacation ever. The house was clean and cozy, the views from the terrace were breathtaking, and the only sounds you hear are blowing winds, some barking dogs, and some whinnying horses. Truly amazing and peaceful. If you're wanting action and crowds, this is not the place for that. If you're wanting solitude, romance, or real relaxation, this place is perfect.
Just down the road in Esperanza or Isabel, you'll find some quaint restaurants and a bit of shopping. And just down the hill from the house, you find a tiny store with just about whatever you need. All the beaches we visited were beautiful and nearly empty--and we went during spring break.
Driving around the island is challenging at first, but you get used to it pretty fast. The roads need work, so drive carefully.
We did the all-in-one bio bay tour with Abe's, and it was simply amazing. Lots of kayaking during the six-hour tour, but it was a blast!
