We decide to walk and explore the main town but my Video shows hundreds of Jewelry shops which was a shock to the system, not at all what we expected and felt we were running a gauntlet. Nothing was priced and ther were lots of OFFERS.
The town itself was o.k. but a long way from the port a 15 min walk or a taxi.
What an awful place, deep drains everywhere, broken light bulbs, telephone boxes
sullen staff in shops, electrical cables sticking up out of the tarmac on street corners. The island was a true volcanic island and we visited a live " Vent" and the waterfalls and the beaches. That was good but when we returned to the town couldn`t wait to get on to the ship.
A very clean civilised place good facilities and shops very welcoming, a nice ambience, people were polite and friendly and I came away wanting to return. The whole island experience was good including the tour.
