I watched the video with interest, never having been further south than Orlando. Your populated-places and tourist-spots locales didn't get the excitement meter much beyond 'ho-hum mode', but that is expected in disturbed ports-of-call.
At least you showed us what to expect when one steps outside of the cruise ship brochure photos (rain, mud, trash, lizards).
I'm looking forward to part two.

Lizards are plenty interesting in their own right when one looks past them just being "that thing crawling on the nearest wall." Especially once one learns to appreciate even the diversity of the ubiquitous anoles and amievas.
The second part is actually up just tonight, admittedly the latter two islands I got roped into far more touristy activities and locations but that doesn't mean the animals and plants there can't be appreciated:
