From my research, it looks like there are 3 internet cafes on the island. Does anyone know if any of these provide Skype access (phone calls) or if they provide wireless "hotspots" where I could use my laptop instead of their computers? Won't bring my laptop if they don't allow me to connect it, but I might need to make a VOIP phone call. Thanks for your help!

Try downloading Hotspot Shield before you come. It creates a VPN that allows SKYPE to work. Most of the internet cafes let you hookup your laptop.

Hmmm, I wonder if BTL reads these forums...
