Customer Travel Tip: Go there for carnival, wear comfortable shoes (not flip flops) and leave all your valuables in a safe at the hostel.

Liked: I was there for carnival and I preferred the traditional part in the old town. The boat trip over to the island was relaxing and a good way of getting away from the partying.

Disliked: By the end of the carnival the smell on the streets became a bit strong!
