It is recommended to visit in the early morning due to boat traffic. Few tour start at 7/7,30 am , many other at 10,00 am and it is too late

Wild and savage Exellent coastal sight. Lots of mosquitos though. So be prepared with decent protection. Shore is wild and very nice. Better to be visited with a boat and stop time to time
