this was not a long visit but was definitely worth a trip - both in terms of the the interest of the place and also the turtles.

Not much to review, but its nice place to visit for a tourist. A religious place to visit. A lot of trees so it shades you from the sunshine. Can take a rest of a while here from your day tour

I wore shorts and had no problems. Although it was a tad chilly at the end of December.
