  • Expensive, but well worth it. Terrific rehabilitative facility, not a sketchy amusement park. Great staff, incredibly informative experience.
  • It is a quiet place to learn a little history of the island and its customs, now well there a guide is to see and read. I don't know if I have to pay to enter because I did a swim with dolphins and this tour they gave me free admission but if they have to pay not I recommend it.
