  • Community-driven, there is a Museum and archaeology site, takes a tour of nature to a lagoon and mud bath. The place has prospered and greatly improved, there are bathrooms, showers, guides community. If you like you can at most of that support and pay a small amount to be archaeologist for a while and help the project. RECOMMENDED
