  • By boat is a great way to see the islands up close. You will see birds and iguanas as well as homes, bars, etc. built on the individual islands. I wish the monkey isolated on the little island had fre...  more »
  • All this is a theft from the start. Many people approaching you offering you 2 hour tours that are never two hours but less because they expect that you went down in some islets to eat or drink something and thus wasting time, there is a fixed price, all come with different offers and do not allow you to talk with other tourists to make group. The worst, in the parking lot we stole, opened us the trunk of the car and removed the spare tire. We realized only when we left there and wanted to leave things in the trunk; us top wanted to charge $2 for "taking care of the truck". How it is possible that it is a place so tourist there is a policeman and with all those people who "works" there with pint of outlaws. We had to go to the police to denounce and they themselves told us that they stole there, but all the tourists leave their cars there! You don't pay until the end of the ride and paid is right, if they promised you 2 hours that make them, if they do not then pay the equivalent. It's what happened with us.

  • The tour by the Isletas was a nice afternoon trip - a bit like a mixture of the Mekong Delta and Everglades. Since all privately owned Islands, most are built more or less pompous. By monkey Iceland, I was disappointed. There were a few monkeys that were already relatively saturated of all tourists. My conclusion: the heat of the city to escape quite ok, but not a must see for me.
