Today we went to Carambola Gardens, a lush tropical jungle park with flowers, palms, hummingbirds, and forest creatures.
Alfredo was our water taxi and we got more than just a ride. He talked about the water, the island, and then guided us to through the gardens.
The first place he took us to in Sandy Bay was the dolphin adventure. For $100 you can swim with them and we arrived as they were being fed.
