    Visit the Island of Iguanas (Little Water Cay)

    by cjg1 Updated Dec 22, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Little Water Cay is an uninhabited island but has plenty of natives such as iguanas and ospreys. We booked an excursion to the island to see the iguanas. Little Water Cay is protected as part of the Princes Alexandra National Park.

    Liz and I hopped aboard a boat with several other resort guest for a nice ride to Little Water Cay. We were told ahead of time to not bring anything but our cameras onto the island; no garbage or outside material should be left on the island. We were also told not to feed or touch the iguanas; that was an easy rule to follow. We arrived at the island; hopped off the boat and were greated by a guide. As we walked the island we saw sevearl birds and plenty of Iguanas. The iguanas barely seemed to noticed us as they were busy walking around or sunning themselves on the beach. Liz snaped away pics and they didn't seem to mind one bit.

    Visiting the island was a fun experience and I was glad we took the excursion.

    Turkey in Paradise?!

    by cjg1 Updated Dec 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Liz and I nver spend American Thanksgiving in the United States. During our Honeymoon was the holiday and we thought we were "safe" from Thanksgiving until we saw a Turkey roaming the resort. When I say Turkey I mean a woman dressed in a Turkey costume. Apparently due to the high volume of American guests at the resort; the resort has full on Thanksgiving celebrations with the works (dinners, decorations and football). As we were getting out of the lazy river we encountered the "Turkey". We posed for a pic with the bird and felt weird that we did so in our swimsuits.... Oh well better to be warm on Thanksgiving than back at home in NY and cold.

    We managed to avoid the typical American Thanksgiving fare(I'm not a fan of Turkey and Liz doesn't eat poultry) and eat some tasty Caribbean Lobster and Ostrich Steaks for Diner. I did break down and have Pumpkin Pie for dessert. It was't the typical pumpkin pie and it was very good.

    conch shells everywhere on the beaches

    by cherylll Updated Nov 27, 2005

    The most spectacular beach is a 12 mile stretch on Grace Bay which is protected by a huge and healthy barrier reef.

    Provo is home of the only conch farm in the world
