Spend days lazing in a swinging hammock or visiting local art galleries and museums. Take a quiet stroll around the island to take in the interesting architecture, magnificent courtyards and gardens flush with moonflowers before heading into town to join the fray of frat boys, sorority girls and eclectic mix of artists, movie stars, and millionaires in this unique island oasis.
