First of all I find it digsusting that for the price of one international visitor you can take a bus load of Indians for the same price.
If the place was well looked after and if you could see that your money was contributing to restoration or towards cleaning the area, OR if the supplied you with an information booklet or even a few signs than I would feel a lot happier about the price difference. We were told that our ticket included a free tour guide however once we were inside we could not find a free guide, however we were approached by many guides asking for money.
The island was a mess. There was rubbish everywhere and the caves /sculptures where nice, few i do admit were impressive but I wouldn't recommend going unless you are bored or have nothing to do.
The ferry ride was the highlight.
I have been traveling through India for over 3months and this was one of the more disappointing places I have come across.
