Just a 15 minute water cab away from Puerto Lindo, Mamey Island is a weekend getaway for the locals wanting to enjoy white sand beaches and crystal clear water. Good thing it was a weekday, besides one couple we were the only ones there. Pretended to be on a deserted island and even attempted to catch some coconuts from the tree…successfully by the way…A really great day!

Later that week we hopped on the water taxi once more and headed to the bigger Island “Isla Grande”. More crowed but great to walk around see the colorful village and visit the lighthouse. We made sure to buy a machete in a local supermarket on our way to the water taxi and from that moment on there was no stopping us from drinking and eating coconut
