Wild and savage Exellent coastal sight. Lots of mosquitos though. So be prepared with decent protection. Shore is wild and very nice. Better to be visited with a boat and stop time to time

For $3 US per person this is well worth exploring. You can hike to a natural underground cave. It's pretty awesome. You need to wear running shoes and you MUST bring a flashlight or a headlamp. Go in the morning when it is cooler. The...More
