The best part of visiting the ruins! Bring your swim suit and bug spray--there is lot of mosquitoes. Don't forget sunscreen. The steps to the beach are quite steep and sand can get very hot.

No other word than beautiful can describe this place. Plenty of snorkelling to be done and amazing and magical giant turtles.

No. Just a bunch of lizards and iguanas. But they don't mind you if you don't mind them.
