Thanks again for your stay. You and your son and daughter were very kind and considerate guests. Due to all wifi service in the region coming through satellite, rainy weather will slow down the service. This is true for any internet in the area and would be an issue anywhere you stay. Bastimentos is full of beaches and shores where the water is clean and clear 365 days a year. Old Bank, the village where the house is located on Bastimentos, is in a bay and the cleanliness of the water is dependent on rain and sea conditions. When there is a lot of rain and current like when you were here the water will be murky, which is not uncommon. When the sea is calm and the weather is dry the water can be crystal clear and you can swim right from the house. If you ever return to Bastimentos it would be a joy to see you again!
