Great views of the Atlantic, nice drinks at the museum, facilities a little lacking. But a great place to visit, great photos to be taken and it's free too... BUT: Don't walk alone or even in a pair (unless you are both pretty tough looking!)...More

We wanted to eat sea fish. The menu did not have a whole fried fish, so we asked them for it and they said right away that they had whole fried red snapper. It was very good, with salad, fried banana (patacon) and salad.
