    It is interesting to go, see and know the remains found of people, there are signs all over the place, but it is a pity there is no surveillance (anyone could steal something :() and also, I think remainders, outdoors or inside these caves of coral-p iedra, can deteriorate over time with ease. It is there a type Museum where objects in a more responsible manner are kept indoors. The entrance is accessible and there is information within the Museum.
