“Surprisngly Safe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Eye opening must-see for any visitor. Very safe in the daytime. Go with a local person so you do not get lost. As a "white" person, I have visited many times and brought many visitors. No one is ever the same after visiting for the first time.
