This was a romantic, refreshing experience. It was very casual and laid-back. You can enjoy looking out over the bay right at dockside. The food was good, with generous portions.

The smooth ride on both the Lambada and Tango made for a wonderful trip. Seeing all the different beaches and resorts along the way was the highlight. Snorkeling on the Lambada was fun as well. Please see the photos
