  • We embarked in a canoe to see first a few mangroves, no comparison with those seen in senegal, far latter, then a very interesting town with their fetishes, then visited the island of sal, which is filtered salt water which is then boiled to remove salt. Then became a picnic at the mouth of the monkey River, which although a little uncomfortable to sit on a mat in the suelo(seria mas interesante llevar unas sillas y mesas de camping). The picnic consisted in rice or couscous with fish and crabs, since it was not a time of gambas.el fish very well, crabs just suck.

  • A magical place up to the Bocca del Rio. I had chartered a canoe motor at the Coco Beach Hotel because the guide is well established locally for an approach to the Voodoo shrines.
