  • Interesting stop for a little history of the island and its people. The place nice and interesting, to know as is lived in that House typical. They charge 10,000 COP per entry. The guide was nice and with good available to answer questions, but still so lacking that explain more in detail many things. At the end of the tour they deliver you a short survey.

  • Yes Yes Yes... those $8 would have to have them worn at a snack bar near the blower hole, drinking beers with friends dreadlocks before that entering the 'Museum'. 5 minutes without questions history... Quick review... Now if you want the extended added you 3 minutes more and there asks all fast because they hurry to finish... the island's history and guide is not known very well... nice 100% but don't ask date because it goes from 1800 to 1899, just. You're going with more uncertainties that with answers... Ahhhh a treasure house owner lives in Providence and their only income is for the innocent that entering the House. And if or if at the end of the tour in the fourth minute with 30 seconds you get a role to evaluate the performance... As have history... agreguelen... are a little more interesting.
