A large portion of the island is uninhabited.
The island is about 185 square miles — and the vast majority of them are totally undeveloped. Instead, the inland jungles are lush and thick and dotted with wild boars, pygmy raccoons, foxes, and exotic birds. Incredibly, most of the island's eastern shore remains undeveloped, too, with all the hotels and resorts clustered on the western coast. You can book a horseback ride into the jungle or a guided excursion to check out the wild waterfront — or just relax feeling oh so far from everything.
