When I went it was under construction. Looks like they are repairing the roads. I'm sure once finished it will look like a picture postcard. I would avoid until 2013.
Also, the restaurants were expensive and served poor food. A tourist trap. Only the wonderful boats and locals made the experience a little pleasant.
