With a doubt that something will go wrong we decided to book a 5-star bunker in Mexico after a week stay on Taborcillo. "Unfortunately,"- I should state! The access from Europe A little tip: take a small break during your journey so that you don’t get very tired traveling so many hours! We made a stop in Panama City and... More

A bit if history first: John Wayne used to own this island many years ago. The island served as his getaway, but it is now owned by an Austrian gentleman who has created a "John Wayne" world in the middle of nowhere. Okay, this place was just wacky.
