Rental vehicle ~ red jeep with our exploring sons!
We stayed on the island for six nights and groceries were really expensive. They have to ferry ALL the food over! We had huge home-cooked breakfasts (thanks to my wonderful husband) and usually ate out once per day. Unfortunately, we ate many meals at the expensive tourist spots, and found our favorite place (where the locals eat) the last night! Housing was a bit costly, but we wanted a house, not a hotel room. And the rental car was somewhat expensive, BUT it is imperative to have a car in order to explore the island.
IF I were doing it again, I would be more selective about shopping at the Supermarket, rather than the quick trip type store, where things were more expensive; and we’d eat where the locals do, where food was much cheaper and delicious!
Coming up: beaches tomorrow!
