Lots of detail on the shopping, dining, hotels, sightseeing and entertainment, based on personal visits by the authors – plus a special emphasis on activities such as boating, fishing, golf, walking, biking, scuba diving, snorkeling, and bird watching. Other activities included are paragliding, sailing, catamaran cruises, soaring, waterskiing, windsurfing, driving trips and horseback riding. For all of these, the authors give a list of local operators who can set you up with equipment, ferry you around from site to site or actually guide you on the trips.
Diverse woodlands and pristine wetlands occupy much of the islands’ interiors, rugged hiking trails meander across the peaks and valleys, and mangrove swamps cushion the shoreline, offering a unique breeding ground for many birds and fish.

The authors then take you touring, visiting all the popular tourist sites and towns, offering valuable tips on shopping, transportation, restaurants and accommodations.
