Old boats and weathered palapas on the white sands give a rustic feel to the two main islands, which are surrounded by 13 smaller coral cays.

    The place is great and people wonder. You can go with total peace of mind, just be careful with the keys TOURS if contracted by INTERNET company. Here is my experience. Beware! This company outsourced all the services and when you get to Sambo whole you're paying 400% more for nothing and without warranties. There is full of boats that come and go constantly closed tour or simply travel. Personally they sent us to a company (the celestial boats that they say, touched us the LC 1-48 NORMA-ISABEL) where a character named Berta, with very rude, scamming us instead to $ 40 per cent, we instructed Chachahuate where supposedly had reserve two months ago for two days in the cabins that promote and not have them. When you get beyond the reserve did not exist. Not worried in find us something, we had to do it on our own. They handle tours on the internet and of the scam was that we had to go get a Monday, but on Sunday, they arrived with people of any contracted tour Captain NORMA Elizabeth sought to us and told us that we had to go with them that day already for the next day was predicted hurricane and they could not go by us. We had already made friends in the Islands and all were perplexed by the impertinence of these scammers, only wanted to save yourself the trip on Monday that surely would not have additional passage. We were not with them and did not come to search on Monday for what had to subscribe to another service. They are pirates and everyone already knows them. We are making the complaint in tourism since not even dan receipt, you cheat with the change and leave unattended in the Islands lying shamelessly. There are many ways to go quiet as the people of the keys is the best that we have seen and shared. When we return will do it by contacting the Professor Francisco Velazco keys school + 50499188931 the may pass certain data and contact them with Don Benito, excellent boatman and a better person, serious and authentic place with the best cuisine of the cays. In chachahuate Ailin teacher or his sister Jessica get accommodation and for better communication, Daryl cabins on long Cay + 504 99921160 with keeper José, the cottages superb and reliable at the time of reporting. Both phones with Whatsapp. I hope to save you headaches with this pirate company. After that, you will go to one of the most beautiful places on the planet filled with wonderful people.
