    Is there a shuttle from Liberia? I am a single traveler, is it a good place to stay as a single person, safe and is there great hikes close by? Would love to do a canopy zip line tour or other adventures, too. Thank you for your honest response. Toni ;-)

    You are about 10 minutes walking, from the beach It is a dusty road. So having a car is a big plus. People do it without, but I would recommend it.
