  • Great family trip! We enjoyed full nature experience. White sand, crystalline waters and relaxation time. Fully recommended!
  • What a nice island this is. Do not be misled by the name, nobody is killing any cats, as there are mainly iguanas and turnstone birds. They were surrounding us as we are, but throwing some sun chips at the birds will make the ones that get the chips run away from the others as they fly away.
