Keep in mind that when you travel to the tropics, bugs (mosquitoes and sand flies) can be expected. We have been able to curtail the sand fly activity on the island but if you are sensitive to biting insects, it is advisable to bring insect repellant for use on the inland tours and for use on the island as needed. You may also want to bring a citronella candle for your veranda in case the bugs are active.

Complimentary wireless internet service is available to guests of The island. However, reception is better on some parts of the island versus others. Furthermore, our system is dependent on the local telephone companies and telecommunications in developing countries are far from optimal. Therefore, we ask that you download music, books, movies, etc prior to coming to The island so you can enjoy listening, reading, watching without interruption. You may also want to alert you family and friends that internet may not be available 24/7 so they will not be worried you don't reply to their texts or emails immediately.

Cell Phones

If you want to make calls to the U.S. from your cell phone, we suggest that you call your cell phone provider and ask for international roaming (there is a monthly fee).  Guests who use Sprint, Cingular, and T-Mobile have done this and it works well.
