  1. Was on Pinel last July and December, our favorite place to visit. There are limited chairs for rent, so the earlier the better is always a good idea, but it is a very small island so it's not like a crowded port beach. They have free wifi on the island. No menu pictures, but the highlight for our July family cruise was the guys picking their lobsters out of the sea and the little girls getting to hold them up. The kids loved their fresh fish and chips and everyone devoured the calamari. They will also put a table in the ocean so you can eat/drink in the ocean (standing) if you'd like. They are awesome at Yellow Beach and very accommodating. The iguanas and hermit crabs complete the experience.
  2. We just took a taxi from the cruise port to the ferry dock (located in Cul de Sac - on the other side of the island), then water taxi over to Pinel. There were four of us and the taxi driver wasn't paid until she came back to pick us up so we didn't get stranded at the dock :) The water taxis to Pinel from the dock in Cul de Sac run every 30ish minutes, so just plan accordingly. We have done this in July and December although I have heard some say that Pinel Island closes this time of year due to the risk of hurricanes. Don't know if that's true or not, so do you research and find out before paying for the taxi ride there.
  3. These are helpful suggestions - we are already booked with Spencer in St. Lucia and can't wait. We also saw Limerz, but have some folks in our group that would like an island tour and beach, so still considering what to do in Antigua. What more can you tell me about your experience with Paradise Tours in St. Kitts. It looks like they will drop you at Friars Beach afterwards - have you done that and if so, is it easy to catch a cab back to the ship?
  4. I believe the playground is called Parque del nino and is within the Luis Munoz-Rivera park: https://sanjuanpuertorico.com/parque-luis-munoz-rivera-park/
  5. These pictures are beautiful! How far out do you have to swim to see all of this? Looks relatively shallow - is it far from shore. Headed there in March and reading your review has me all excited to buy a new waterproof camera.
