The lagoon its nice but its full of people. There is one place to jump for free but if you wanna do something else you need to pay. I will say that you have to go to see it by yourself.

The actual journey towards the lagoon is scenic, you will go through the mangroves and small islands. Pick the package wherein the Kawhagan Island is included! Its also worth it with only a very small difference in price (although the food sold in the island...More
