As promised Neil knocked on our lockout door shortly before 9:15 confirming that he would be happy to give us a ride to the station. All packed up we hopped into a stranger's vehicle and made our way to the bus station. After a handshake from Ryan and a hug from me Neil headed back to the resort leaving us to wait for our 10 AM bus. Of course I did a little shopping at the local beach and bikini shop while Ryan chilled on the bus bench. Luckily, I noticed from the store window the bus ...

Jose died in his 60's and eventually the park was sold and over the years has suffered cyclone and fire damage. The present owners appear to have a vision like Jose and are redeveloping the park, uncovering paths and repairing buildings. The hydro turbine has been refurbished to supply the parks power.
