We visited Conception Island on our second to last day before leaving. After a long sail to get there, we arrived and hit the water. The children snorkeled all day! The reefs were stunning and we saw some of the most diverse and healthy marine life. There was the biggest lobster I had ever seen, a nurse shark, a huge manta ray and many many fish. The kids spent hours explorer the mangrove forests and finally made it to the island's center just before dinner. It was like a scene from a movie. There was navy blue water in lots of pools which filled with sea turtles as the tides changed. The sun shone brightly and there was almost no trace of human influence. At night, despite the large motor boat that left all of its lights on next to us, there were still so many stars that the sky looked like it was made of stars and the blackness was the minority. Definitely visit Conception Island.
