Where to start...? Well, let's start from the top!

Generally the sky looks... like the sky, the sun looks like... the sun. But it's only illusion...
The sun is very strong and you should be very careful with sunbath. You should protect your skin not only when lying on the beach...
But I think this sun is what makes local inhabitants so happy. It's incredible how joyful, smile, friendly and helpful they are! They are especially very helpful with learning Spanish (their native language), so you can get back home rich of new language - mainly slang ;)

And this way we went down to the land...

Wherever you go - north, south, east, west - I guarantee you will often feel like when exiting the airport and taking the first breath of this tropical air - you will be gasp of what you will see... So be prepared :)
White-sand beaches, mountains with a palm and fruit trees, torrents in the valleys, waterfalls, islands around... This all make this place really special, and even if I would do my best - words can never describe feelings people can experience while being there.

And just short info about the ocean...

For those who can't swim or are very beginners: the water is very, very salt and will carry you for itself ;) so you will easily learn swimming. But be very careful about the currents at the bays - they are really strong and unsafe. If you can dive - you shouldn't leave this place without seeing reefs.
