Thank you everyone for such good advice and pointers. I think after reading all the posts that we will skip the excursions and rent a taxi to the beach and stop back by the shops.
There is so much I would love to see but only have 1 day. I would love to drive around the island and see the other side. Maybe next time!
suen0724 - we will be there the following week, 9/10-14/07 aboard Carnival Holiday. I'm very excited!!
