Once in Coxen Hole, rather than pay $15 US for a taxi to our hotel, we took a collectivo for $1 US each to West End, then a water taxi for $3 US each to our hotel in West Bay. Water taxis make frequent trips back and forth between West End and West Bay-
Happy hour is from 3-6 and we've discovered a new drink. It's a Monkey LaLa: vodka, Baileys, Kahlua, Eagle Brand (I know!!!!) and coconut milk - all blended with chocolate syrup on top. It's AWESOME!!! And you get 2 for $6!!! We spent most of happy hour a block or two down from our hotel-
