    • Good hotels in Socotra

      by thenayan123 Online Now Jun 23, 2014 at 2:58 AM

      I'm looking for a good hotel in Socotra that meets western standards and is clean with good services. I've heard about the Summerland hotel but I'm wondering if there's anything better than that or thats the best hotel there. And if its the best hotel there is there any internet connection phone service etc.

    • Best way to plan Socotra trip

      by eager2travel Online Now Mar 22, 2009 at 5:44 PM

      Can some one tell me if it's best to plan a "pre-packaged" trip with one's own highlights (if possible) or just to show up? Looking to hike and snorkel, with camping, view of highlights, possible house/hotel stay in various (best!) parts of the island. Have 8 days - two women going together (not a problem, I hope). Any advice about guides, or other is really appreciated!

      Today we decided spontaneously to go to Socotra - we have exactly one week for the island. I`ve looked at the few Sokotra pages, but I`d like to get more detailed info on the must-sees or recommended activities from people who have been there. What regions have the most spectacular landscape, are there good hiking trails, what activities would you pack into a full - five day-itinerary ?

      Thx for your help!
