We had so much fun here! Definitely make this part of your island time. We asked for the experience to be participatory with the drumming and dancing, and they were more than happy to accommodate us!

We loved the time we spent with Audrey, the drummers and the lovely lady who taught us dance moves! This was totally do-able as part of our Daniel's Monkey Hangout + scuba tour, thanks to Daniel's mom who was our excellent driver and island historian.
