  The good life!

Favorite thing: This is probably not a "secret" anymore, but when I was there in November 2003, this new luxury resort up the hill at the back of the town was still under construction.

It wasn't in any guidebook. But I heard about it from some other travellers. Although the cabanas at the back were still being built, the restaurant and pool had just opened a couple of months prior. For the price of a few (very reasonably priced) drinks or lunch, you could enjoy the pool and the magnificent view over the town and bay for as long as you wanted!

Fondest memory: I spent many lazy afternoons here, and met several people, both tourists and locals.

This is the kind of place that usually only people spending a few hundred dollars a night get to enjoy in the Caribbean. And here I was, paying $15 for my room down the hill, 3 minutes walk away from this "resorty" place.

The staff was friendly and the food delicious (see my Restaurant tips).

Ha, la belle vie!
