Paradise 🌴☀️ Dreaming of visiting #SandalsEmeraldBay Resort again in the near future. Most of the aerial images we shot around the #Bahamas look like paintings !! The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 cays and islands divided into three major areas, Great Exuma, Little Exuma and The Exuma Cays. Each island offers its own unique Bahamian experience.

Amazing encounter with nature !! We were lucky enough to observe infant green monkeys feeding and being carried around the Barbados Wildlife Reserve by their mothers. As the infant matures and becomes more independent, it will stray from its mother, being carried only when the troop moves or when danger threatens. Infants often appear blue in color, as they have little fur when they are born. However, as they mature, they develop a thick fur that is brownish-grey in colour with specks of yellow and olive green. In some lighting, the fur has an overall green appearance and is why they were named “green monkey”. Photo by Mike Theiss @sandalsresorts @islandroutes #LiveFunner

While exploring the island of Barbados we encountered a few curious and mischievous monkeys. The green monkeys found in Barbados originally came from Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa approximately 350 years ago. I suggest taking the @IslandRoutes tour to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve where you will see hundreds of monkeys and a few baby monkeys swinging through the trees.

Snorkeling with @IslandRoutes and the “fish whisperer” at Carlisle Bay, Barbados. Our snorkel guide knew how to get the fish swimming in a perfect circle around him creating a fish tornado !! Photo by Mike Theiss @SandalsResorts #LiveFunner
