Lots of walking around but very cool. Also you'll see lots of iguanas running around and living under the cracked tombs

If you have bikes or scooters it's a fun stop. Check out some of the funny tombstones. My favorite is "I told you I was sick"

The cemetery is open with paved pathways so you can pedal your bike through and read the creative epithets. Some fun history is buried here!
