Fabulous experience for birders, walkers, and those who want to get away from it all. Surprisingly comfortable lodging, excellent food and drink and, interesting fellow travelers and staff. Our return flight was delayed 8 hours due to fog allowing more time to explore the island. Best to assume there might be travel delays.
