What our experts tell about this experience.
It can a little over priced on this island but then that’s my only complaint. I enjoyed it a lot here. I don’t get why some complain so much. Yes it is touristy but you can find the quiet areas too. However the whole island is enjoyable! The food in every restaurant here is fresh and I didn’t get sick once. The island itself still holds it’s nature and beautiful waters. Snorkeling was new for my little brother. He’s only 7 and he loved it here! My family and I had a real good time.
The beaches in PP, are beautiful. Just outstanding stunning. My sisters and I went snorkeling and diving and saw so many beautiful fish! The water was very clear and very clean! We also had the first time experience of jumping off a cliff. I was less scared as the waters looked nice and calm and blue but of course my legs were still shaking! The nights here were as crazy as a night could get. The on going drinks and buckets here are just a "come drink me more" sensation!
