  • Like all old stadium, the island retreat needs better maintenance and better snack options. The bathrooms are deplorable and the snacks offered are very weak. But we need to pay attention to the tbm regulars, mostly leave the stadium very dirty, the Brazilian needs to improve their education by attending public places. But the cauldron of emotional supporters.

  • Only worth going if the local time is really bad, and you know the crowd will attend. Very dangerous.

  • accessibility is very good, the location also. You can find it quickly ... the environment is preserved.
