We decided it was time to try one of the excursions offered up by the Hilton hotel. We decided on the island hopper which basically would be a whole day cruise to different islands.

They picked us up at the hotel and took us down to the docks where the boats were. There was quite an international flavor to the tourists there. In our group we had a couple from Switzerland, Italy, India, America, and Germany.

We strapped on our lifejackets and set off on our island cruise.

It had been a long day. We came back and just decided to order room service. I made a quick dash to town to pick up our laundry that we had taken to a local cleaner.
