In March I am meeting a friend in Miami in order to travel to Roatan and Utila to dive and snorkel with Whale Sharks. The friend has never been to the US (Aussie) and I would like to show her some of the sights in The Keys.
I now live in Alaska, yet have spent quite a bit of time in The Keys, but it has been about 15 yrs. As she is taking a "Refresher Course" in Honduras, I doubt we will do any diving, but perhaps some snorkeling.
So, I am looking for suggestions on how to see The Keys in 4 1/2 days.
Day 1: Prolly leave Miami early afternoon, travel to Key Largo? Does that sound reasonable? Or would you suggest farther, Tavernier, Plantation or other?
Day 2: Perhaps travel to Bahia Honda then stay in Big Pine? How long a drive to Big Pine from Key Largo?
Day 3: Up early and travel all the way to Key West to catch Sunset (still doing that?) and the Duval Crawl (OK too old for that, but will explore in the morning.
Day 4: Up late and head back up north (east) and try to make it up near Penecamp to do some snorkeling?
Day 5: Up early and back to Miami to go to Honduras.
In the old days, all that driving didn't seem like such a big deal, but is this doable or would you suggest we just do Penecamp and/or Key Largo?
Any suggestions on where to stay and what to see on that time would be great.
Thanks so much,
