Port of the Island Resort: Naples, FL, 5 nights
Type: Hotel

Description: The Port of the Islands is a very unique property located in the heart of the Everglades. Please note that the resort is located in a remote area 15 miles from Everglades City, Marco Island, and East Naples, and that there are no shops or other facilities nearby or within walking distance. While this helps to add to the exclusiveness of the program, we want to make sure that you are prepared by bringing any necessities you need with you. We will be making a trip to a local grocery store on Day 2 of the program, so you may be able to pick up any items you may have forgotten, but if you do not have your own vehicle you will not be able to travel throughout the area on your own.
