  • I loved the festival! well-timed and full of local attractions. Don't expect great producoes, they are quite simple, but you can see the concern of all in show the best! Could accept credit card to facilitate for the tourist eoferecer a food less expensive.

  • Entrance $10 ... contrary to what you read earlier. I don't know if increased prices or they just treated like a "tourist". Inside the Fort you can choose a seafood platter ($8) or chicken ($7) both good. The show starts at 19 and lasts a couple of hours: pleasant and engaging.

  • According to the schedule, the show starts at 7:00 pm; however, the show never started. There aren't messages or adds to explain why. At the end, a local person said that they were in vacations :(  more »
