The Sofitel Maeva Beach Hotel. It is much more beautiful than the guide book leads one to believe!! Last night I left the curtains open so I could watch the sky as it lightened. By 5:30 am I was up. There are no near places to the hotel to grab something to eat before the jeep tour so I had breakfast out side looking at the sunrise over the Pacific.


Island Jeep Safari today!
