This was a fun-filled day! I enjoyed the drive to see another part of the island and riding the boat through the mangroves to see the crocodiles. The guide at Black River explained efforts to preserve the habitat and took us to the see where they are raising crocs to be released back to the wild. Next we went to YS Falls where Ian took us across the waterfall where I JUMPED IN and my friend dripped off the Tarzan rope into the water. That was fun! What a gorgeous landscape! Our guide Mario was on time, explained the arrangements at each place and waited for us. He put us at ease so we could just enjoy the day.
