We spoke to monica by email and she set us up with a taxi stop for snorkeling gear on the way to the resort. It was the best beach I was ever on. No one on either side, just forest and clean empty beach. The resort was spotless, the staff was very friendly ( Hugo was running drinks out to us all day) and monica treated us like family.
The beach is clean with white sand, no shells or rocks. The reef is just offshore for snorkeling and there are a lot of fish. The kids had fun on the beach and in the water. We had drinks in the shade of mini palapas. The food was excellent and nonstop.
This is the one place I would really like to return to for a week. I was sorry the day went by so quickly. We had the beach to ourselves. Our kids are still talking about it. It was better than our day at Little French Key In Roatan.
