  • Small and accessible, is a good plan to spend a little time with children. Exposure on frogs is very interesting but the possibility of Petting starfish is the most. Highly recommended.

  • Travel on the island is of short duration, but the views that are worth to be visited. In this area there is a small trail of forest on the edge of the sea and a small Aquarium and Observatory of amphibian, starfish, turtles and small fish.
