What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Watching the baby sea turtles hatch at sun down is a truly special experience and yet it is almost lost in the fabulous array of activities on offer here. What’s more, the hotel is so integrated into the community that this is the perfect chance to learn the culture, art, language or cuisine of the local people.
