I had requested a visit to a hummingbird sanctuary (thanks to Tripadvisor - you won't find this place in travel brochures).

      ... vegetarian, and my new found favorite Curry Mango! It was amazing. Finally the night ended, and as I am staying with with the hosts, we were the last ones there to shut down the place. By this time it was about 3am, and we headed back to Marvel. We sat around recapping the events of the party, remembering how many generations of our family were there.

Just outside on the city side of the passenger Terminal was a long open sided ten that housed many small stands selling everything from clothing to steel drums to masks for hanging on the wall or wearing at Carnival.
