Enjoyed this port more than I expected. Surrounded by desert, this little town is a nice oasis. Walked down the beach then hired a taxi for $20 to take us to the top of the hill. Great views.

Very interesting! We took an open air bus along the coast to visit the caves, then up on the hill for a great overlook. The town is friendly with lots of shops and restaurants. The woman in the tourist information office was especially helpful.

We walked to the nearby church and viewed the huge granite 'rock'. Great to see... Some nice and easy shopping in stalls were positioned near the port and we purchased some really cute native souvenirs (not outlandishly priced).
