Cultural festival done through ship was about the only thing on offer.It was a Sunday so everything closed.The cultural festival was well worth it.Such beautiful traditional costumes and dancing

The very small town has little to offer and the folks are extremely poor by western standards.

We opted not to do an excursion but chose to just walk into the town and experience the people.
