Coco Plum Island
The first 2 days Steve & I really enjoyed the relaxation privacy that Coco Plum has to offer. You can be secluded even with 10 other couples & about 15 employees. We lay out, lay in the amazing hammocks (which we now HAVE to get one it's an amazing therapeutic thing to lay in a hammock), walked Steve into the Ocean, & just truly soaked in how amazingly beautiful this place is. We immediately get along with everyone, staff & guests are all just very laid back, genuine, & kind people. After breakfast the second day Sergio asked if he could help us push Steve around so we could tour the Island. This was such a sweet gesture & it meant so much to us. We got to see all of the amazing Island & we were really starting to pick up on the kind of people we were amongst. :)
Now let me mention the food. We would have breakfast at 7 AM (they were also super flexible & wouldn't give us any grief for being late. Sam would always come knock at our door & help us get to breakfast :)) Lunch was at 12 & then dinner was at 7. I swear not eating any other meat than seafood worked to my advantage. They would catch their fish each day & it was the BEST seafood I have ever tasted. All the food was always so fresh, perfectly cooked, & seasoned! We had Renae & Sam take care of us each meal & they were very accommodating for Steve & anything he needed. Heck we were hungover one morning & Sam came & set us up breakfast on our front porch of the cabana!! :)
The days all start to blend together because we fill them with so much...breakfast, lay out by the bar on the deck with some of our new friends :), drink lots of yummy drinks, hang out with sergio, nap, swim, lunch, drink some more, hang out some more, and then dinner & drinks & dancing dancing & more dancing :).
Rojo took us on a special snorkel trip so Steve & I could go, we invited along another couple Dave & Janet, as Dave didn't feel comfortable to swim in the open ocean. We parked on the beach of Pelican Island. Rojo took me out while Steve chilled on the beach, & Crispen took Dave & Janet. Rojo & I swam out & checked out some of the reef & then turned around early to go hang out with Steve. We took Steve out & he went swimming & stretched around! Rojo, Steve, & I hung out in the water just soaking in the amazing feeling for close to an hour. We then took the boat over to bird Island. I've been checking bird Island out since we arrived & it was so cool to go up close. Frigates & yellow footed boobies live on the Island & hang out on the Black Mongrel trees. They chose this particular Island because it's the highest elevation. Pretty cool to see up close.
