But, never fear, there was plenty to see and do. We shopped at the few open shops near the cruise ship for souvineers for family back home for awhile. I liked a little ring that was more than I wanted to spend (it was the price of a cruise. Iâ€™d rather have another cruise than a ring any day.) We found our nativity and local rum to bring home. We took the water taxi to the boardwalk â€“ main-beach-area to find a few bars open.

Itâ€™s small but VERY enjoyable. BE SURE you take the tour, which was well worth it. They also have amazing pieces of art using real expired butterflies (which sounds morbid, I know, but they were actually incredible and the butterflies dies of natural causes.) The prices of beautiful things on their site is MUCH (like hundreds of dollars) more than actually going in person, so if youâ€™re a butterfly lover, plan to pick up a few unique and incredible souvenirs while youâ€™re there.
On the way back, our driver gave a ride to a few beach-goers at Orient beach. Orient looked like a beautiful beach thatâ€™s laid out very well. We only saw it from the taxi, but it looks like a place Iâ€™d return.
