i stayed at journeys end in august 2000, and ramon's in 1993. wadda ya wanta know? it depends what youre looking for. it was our fist time away without the kids too, and i wanted PEACE AND QUIET. i chose JE. ramon's is closer to town, jE is serene. both have dive shops, JE you haveta take a water taxi about 10 minutes to get there from town. ramones has its pluses & minuses, as does JE. i sat on the beach &/or snorkeled at JE, frank dove 9 dives that week. ask me what you want...i check in everyday! chloe has been to JE too, and bigzeke was at ramons in aug and like it.
