Hey Byron: thanks for the report. We truly cannot wait to get there. Since we moved our trip because of Keith, it will be over a year we have been waiting to go. From your description, it sounds well worth the wait! We made reservations to have 1 of the 2 jr. suites on the beach at Mata Rocks. Did you happen to check those out at all? And, apparently, you recommend booking tours through the hotel, not directly with the tour operator, right? Thanks for any further info.
