Shete Boka National Park Experience

Most of you know me, I’m not one for nature! One of my favorite phrases is, “I don’t outdoors”. But I do LOVE water, all water, fish tanks, oceans, seas, rivers, shoot – I even love baths. So, when I’m “trapped” on a beautiful Caribbean island with a National Park, I will give it a

Beach Day at Playa Porto Mari

We chose this beach because of the promise of white sandy beaches, snack shops, easy accessibility, and large pigs! Yup – pigs.
