A group of for of us went to Devon and the guides were vry friendly and helpful. They were so knowledgeable. Our guide looked as if he was just out of college and impressed us every room that he reviewed. The grounds were well manicured and above all the highlight of our trip to Devon House was the i" scream and the delicious mangoes that we were able to collect under the trees

The airport does not have many souvenir stores (and those one are pretty expensive) so I recommend you to visit Devon House (an old "hacienda") and shop around. A MUST is to try an ice cream at the ice cream parlor (just a warning, the smallest one is HUGE!). Enjoy!

Devon House was most interesting and the tour very informative. The property is 11 acres and hosts a number of other tourist-related businesses. Well worth the visit.

Devon house was nice, historical with some gift shops and great ice cream. The only down side were the grumpy people in the ice cream shop.
