Best supermarket in town. All European products you don’t find anywhere else in the country. Expensive though…

here ended the good road. becareful with animals crossing way and try drive slowly

Aqui termina a pavimentação da estrada e inicia o trajeto de terra. Alguns buracos e trechos piores que outros, precisa dirigir devagar e tomar cuidado pois há muitos animais cruzando a pista.

No se puede parar mas aqui, por lo menos en motorhome. Son muy amables pero tienen la orden de su superior de no dejar entrar vehículos. Fuimos a dormir a la plaza de armas, muy linda y segura pero movimiento toda la noche.

Still open, lunch or dinner 5 000 francs good portions, cold beer 1500 the big one, 1000 small, let you camp with a tent anywhere you want for 5000 a night.

awsome place to spend afternoon and the night. maybe can stay whit a camper, I dont know. Easy to pitch a tent in the nearby area of the parking, so many spots to hide.There its a restaurant in the top of the dune, maybe can ask for water and electricity. I stay in November, no problem at all🤙🏻

Really nice pools. They are man made but the water is coming strait from the river and the water is super clean and clear and refreshing as it’s really hot here. The area is surrounded by a cocoa farm and you can also see lots of cool birds. The pools are 6k pp. To get here from San Vincente we needed to find an alternative to google maps as the road was closed. There was a dirt road for 1km that bypassed the closed section

Great spot. Washrooms are heated and have running (non-potable) water. Lots of level space to park. Dog walkers coming and going.

Perhaps wrong timing , but no helpful at all. No time. Send us to the opposite of the gas station.

Google tells you to go on a road that is currently closed and we could not find another way around the closure so a local allowed us to follow them to this bypass road. It’s about 1km of rough dirt road with a little sketchy bridge. Then you get back onto the main road to the piscinas

This is a beach as if it was from a commercial for the carribean. Deserted under palm trees with blue waters.
We were the only people for three days in this paradise.
The people who keep the beach clean 'charge' 5$ a day which is absolutely OK. They even bring you some fresh coconuts every now and then for free.
They said that they would love to see more foreign tourists as until this here, there weren't foreigners for 10 years.
So don't hesitate to come here. You will need at least high clearance to get to the beach. Some low hanging trees. No phone reception and no facilities.

Nice little tour on an organic Cacao farm. Takes around 45 minutes and you see the plantation, the processing and a nice little movie about the region in the end.
Costs only 2$ per person and you can buy the chocolate in the end for 2-3$ per block.
We didn't ask but I am pretty sure they would let you camp there for the night. They have toilets and showers.

We would absolutely recommend the tour as it is inexpensive and you support the local economy.

Easy to get a day pass for $8. I was going to hot tub then shower but a lot of local elders use this facility and the hot tub was full. You can bring your items into the pool area if you don’t want to get a locker. The showers are hot and they have soap

Pessoal é mal educado, não tem balança, cobra um valor e não entrega o botijão cheio! Me cobrou $7.000,00 pra completar e entregou faltando uns 4kg de gás e ainda querem ter razão!
Com o botijão cheio o marcador fica da metade do verde pra mais e mal saiu do amarelo! EVITEM!
