  • Enjoyed meeting the owner and having a tour of her property. She showed us her flowers, iguana and crocodile. It was nice to meet and talk to a local!  more »
  • Small outing on the island, to see for the crocodile and the friendly lady who grows flowers and aloe. (Aloe is grown in bathtubs, we like the recovery of Cubans) A simple gift to visit. Allow about 30 minutes for this visit if the crocodile doesn't take too long to show up!
