  • The Museum sits just on the wavy bridge, go straight ahead for about 500 metres. The value is 200 pesos per person. Is even greater than you think. Have several bones of whales, many stuffed animals and formaldehyde. Several species of shells (including they sell). I didn't find anything too much, if you have free time, is worth knowing. The side has a outto Insect House which is also part of the Museum, when oa in had so much dust that I gave up.

  • Beautiful and sad, to see so many beings, many extinct by greed of men. Other by the own evolution. "If man has a little spirit, will never understand and respect the life"
