We were prepared to spend some time touring the island. Was something that
could have been done easily in a day. Not much to see.  Enjoyed seeing the
Flamingos and saw a wild Boar on a dirt road. 

Was not told the half of it about thievery. 5 people in our resort had
their rental vehicles broken into within 4 days.  The problem is mainly
that the authorities do little about it other than "lip service".
 Could eventualy cause tourism problems if they don't take better action.
