Our family enjoyed seeing this site. It was very interesting and educational. We also met a gentleman in the back working the grounds who educated us on different uses for coconut, coconut oil and herbs he grows.

The ruins are a self-guided tour. There are some plaques that denote the history of the buildings, and what took place where. It was perfect for an early morning walk to enjoy the cool of the morning in the shade.
