The area has sugar cane plantations, pastureland, and swamps with crocodiles and other bird life.
We stayed at a really nice hotel called Idler's Rest, which is right on a nice beach with lots of seashells for Kirsi to pick and sand for Aidan to shovel. We weren't hassled at all and we loved the hotel that we stayed at.
We arrived around 4:30 so we just got settled, spent some time on the beach, and had supper while overlooking the Caribbean.
The next morning, we took a boat tour on the Black River. We saw lots of birds and 3 crocodiles. One was a young one that was staying in the sun so that it could better digest its food. Its belly was full. We went up river as far as Mangrove Alley. We had a great time!
We then drove down to Treasure Beach, where we had lunch at Jack Sprats - a really nice restaurant on the water. We drove around for a while before heading back to the hotel for supper.
