  • Date unknown. Seen from several angles, all lit up, with its bridge illuminated cross, day or night, everything simply charming.

  • Facades are beautiful and often behind soul sleeves. Public restrooms are what's missing! If you have seen and more is still not a requirement - is the island against West.

  • Great vibe by the water and yummy Arepitas from Iguana cafe. And do not forget the Queen Emma (floating) bridge that opens for large ships to pass through.
