Tour here was good. Water surfers go here to surf. Waves are big here. Islanders are here soliciting, for example guys here with a parrot and monkey asking for money to take a picture with them and their pet.

Beautiful view, great waves for boogie boarding, waves can be a little rough at times. Vendors are pretty aggressive, you just have to be aggressive right back! Was there in the morning to meet a couple going on an excursion, the vendors were a problem....More
