  • A great option to join exercises with nature. A walk around the island that includes two paths a little longer of 8, 4 km (roundtrip) and another shorter of 3 mile (round trip) with a walk to see the crocodile nursery. The best option and rent a bike ($ 4 for 3 hours) but also a lot of people run or simply a walk. Instead of a fitness room in a hotel turn on Isla de Santay. The bridge linking the island with the city and have a nice look was very well thought out so that people who came to enjoy some fresh air could sit in several banks along the bridge and enjoy the view. Recommend.
