Wow ! Very interesting port and interesting history. Great place to see monkeys.


by rosepetersen

I think this was my favourite stop. It was more like the jungle I expected I. The Amazon. The insects were singing, the monkeys were all over, and the agouti were about. It was very hot. The history was interesting, but I lived the plants and animals
