Antique, you are completely correct about what you see when you leave the ship. Of course I have found this true with so many islands especially the poorer or smaller ones. The only positive thing about what you see when you disimbark is the great deals on pottery at the shopping area by the pier. Other than that it is not a very positive experience. You need to tour the island, snorkel, visit the beaches and resorts. The island is lovely and the people quite friendly, but the pier area and downtown are very disheartening. We have found this on other islands as well. Some we would never want to return to, but I think had we taken tours we may feel differently. NMNita
