Not a lot of Americans get this far. Long way to go, so don't plan on seeing many fellow Americans. It is worth it. This is at a UNSECO biosphere site. It is an island with rooms and luxury for those trying to break away from life for a few days. No cars, No stores, No sundries stores, no vending. Not a potato chip - Literally with in miles (by boat) I suggest a semi beach bum life style. Bare foot and baggies. You eat, drink and relax and have fun. Snorkeling is great, scuba, jet ski, The sea life is abundant. Every evening an event to meet and greet at the main pool area. The rooms are very clean (housekeeping is excellent). The staff and reception learn your names and note your preferences, with you for every need. I travel often and have seen many resorts. This is in the top of the list. They work so hard to make your stay for you. Our "handler" greeter at the terminal. Can't say a enough, Took us from terminal to terminal, to process and got us on the "local" to the Island - the resort is the island and vice versa. These folks run on their own Kihaa (Island time). WIFI was problem free. If you want my honest opinion- yes worth the trip. The change from top gear to idling is a noticeable and welcome shift in your life. I say twist your lid off and let the stress bubble away.
