My experience in Captain Cook was amazing! Everyone was super welcoming. I really enjoyed learning all about sustainability and organic farming. Playing with all of the animals is something I am really going to miss! The farm is a two mile walk to one of the best snorkel beaches, so there is always something to do! Dee did an amazing job with immersing us into the culture and her life, she really wanted us to get a good feel of the island! Overall I would definitely recommend!
