Hola! We just got back from our 7 day adventure of Isla and what a beautiful place. Thanks, to everyone who has made themselves available on this site. The trip wouldn't have been the same without all the great tips we received.
To start, Avalon was a refreshing surprise. After reading many poor reviews, I found Avalon to be in an Amazing location. Rough seas on one side and lagoon like on the other. The staff was Outstanding (enthusiastic & smiling all the time)! Hola- Francisco, Jorge & Irving
The rooms were sub-par to par (we stayed in the tower), but with the million dollar view, we didnĺt care. We never lost any sleep on the hard beds!
Cool rock house.
We made a couple stops in town. We ate at a real hole in the wall! Tinoĺs, great ribs w/tasty sides!!!
Found a nice spot on the beach to enjoy those great ribs.
If youĺre looking to do Contoy this is the place. Several days of wind didnĺt allow us to do the trip. Next time, Tony! Good reason to come back soon :-)
OM, a good place for a drink(or 2). Good live bands!
Jax another great place!
The sun would rise on one side of Avalonů
And set on the otherů
Back @ the resort. Nice pool.
From 100 yards or so out in knee deep waterů
My wife and I consulting our MapChick map(what to do next?), also wondering why we couldn't find Tinoĺs on there??? Laura we would pay $12- $14 for a laminated e-z fold out map!!!
View from Casa Oĺs
Stopped at El Garrafon Hotel to snorkelů
Punta Sur is a must stop. Beautiful at night too. Great Margaritas! Do yourself a favor and pay the $3 a piece to walk the paths by the water!
We stopped at Ballpark Tacos for a midnight munch(sounds like Cochirool). Just ask any taxi. Best tacos we ever had with a great setting. Hours I think? 7:00 pm- 2 or 3 am. We rented a golf cart 2 days spread out over a few. It was nice to adventure out and have a day just enjoying the resort, then go see everything we missed the first time. Playa Lancheros is a great stop- Gotta have the fish!
On a visit to La Gloria English school, was hard to find, had a nice talk with Maggie and Greg. Thanks for your time! We wish you all the best!!! The cart ride from Punta Sur to town at night is Amazing( the sound of the surf ů Awesome)! Town was a nice walk from Avalon.
See, I fell in love with Isla. Itĺs a good thing that both my wife and I have embraced this new relationship because with Isla thereĺs no telling what might happen :-)
