- Overall good intro to Caribbean but too much time spent in transit for a 12 night trip, esp. 7 hr ferry with no outside seating and basic catering. Highlights rain forest, river trip, seeing an iguana, and local people. Some featured activities not do-able eg swimming in Crayfish waterfall (water much too cold and insufficient time), Champagne Beach (bubbles are off shore and only visible if snorkelling, beach is narrow strip of volcanic boulders so difficult to get in and out of sea, Freshwater Lake kayaking (no evidence of facility to hire kayaks). Recommend taking EC$, not USD - shops/restaurants use own exchange rate which isn't particularly good. The majority of places price in EC$ and it is a nuisance having to work out the conversion and your change will come in EC$.
