I needed to use the restroom after the long boat ride, so I asked where it was... "Over there" the lady told me... So I go "over there" and came across a small rickety building. Now, I've been all over the Caribbean, and I've been in any number of questionable bathrooms... Keep in mind, I'm barefoot at this point... They made us take off our shoes prior to boarding the "speed boat"... My feet were covered in sand, so I didn't want to put my sandy feet inside my relatively new Keen water shoes... Anyhoo, I get over to the restroom, and go right in...




I was just glad that I didn't have to go "number two" under these circumstances... I did my thing, and went over to wash my hands. Well, as my luck would have it today, there was no water whatsoever coming out of the faucet. This basically means that everyone who works on the island, including the people cooking our lunch over there, have washed their hands since who knows when... Luckily, I brought with me an adequate supply of handy wipes... Here's a picture of the outside of the bathroom building...



I am just not a barefoot in the public bathroom guy. I couldn't have done that. Information like this is why CC is helpful. This is an excursion I will not be doing . Sorry it wasn't amazing for you.

At the Atrium bar waiting for the Chef's Table to begin... Major food p0rn incoming soon... If the WiFi works down there, that is...



Can’t wait for the food porn! So sorry for the bad excursion experience. I could never set foot in that bathroom or ate that food. You were one brave fella. I know a lot of people on here book third party excursions, but I never have. It’s just a safety thing with me. This account of your excursion convinced me I’ve  made the right decision. So glad you made it back to ship in time, and in one piece. Enjoy the Chefs Table tonight, and a few (or more) cocktails. You’ve earned it.

Oh Sid, I’m sorry your excursion sucked.  I did that same one a few years ago and enjoyed it.  I don’t remember the boat being that small, but the WWI era life jackets stunk.  The starfish area was my favorite part. I did think it was sketchy when another tour operator landed a helicopter on Saoña island waaaayyy too close to people on the beach.  


Enjoy the chefs table tonight.  I have never gone because I can’t/won’t seafood, but it looks like a fabulous night!
