Unfortunately the museum was closed when we went,. The grounds were nice and the statuaries were interesting. Would give it another shot if I was in the area.

Great new pool, but they will steal your credit card if you use it. Use cash only. The thieves have some kind of deal with Artesanias Delfina’s where they made a thousand dollars of charges.

Good place to go for a quiet, relaxing, lay on the beach day. They have a lovely pool, bar service available, and there was hardly anyone there.
