Do you dislike walking on the Beach, feeling the warm sea breeze on your face ? Do you feel uncomfortable with sand between your toes ? Do you not like eating fresh fruit straight from the trees, vegetables straight from the ground, fish fresh from the sea ? Do you just get bored waking up to 20 C every morning knowing that it is going to be another + 25 C day ? Do you get fed up watching the Whales splashing in the sea, Pelicans and Blue Footed Boobies diving for their lunch and Frigate Birds drifting on the wind ? Are you annoyed by those Kite Surfer Dudes turning tricks on the waves ? THEN THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU !!!!
