We enjoyed a ride along an old rail route formerly used for commercial traffic. The tracks run past a number of small communities. Folks will wave at the train as it passes their back yards. At the end of the trip, we bussed to a dock where we were escorted on a mangrove tour, seeing exotic birds and wildlife along the way.

Take a shore excursion here as it is quite a run down place. We visited the Central Valley where all the coffee plantations are and the scenery changes to one that is very lush and green -coffee plantation tour was very interesting. Also visited village where the vibrantly decorated oxcarts are made

Not much at the port. Take an excursion if you want to see anything. We took the Jungle Crocodile Safari. It was relaxing and we saw lots of birds and crocodiles. The snack afterwards was just a little fruit and coffee, but bathrooms were clean and dancers entertained us briefly.
