Very nice staff.
Good location when you like it quite.
Good for kids.

Our luggage was thrown on the top of the minivan along with that of the other six travellers coming for the ride and once it was strapped in, away we went. The first couple hours were fairly uneventful. The roads were paved for the most part and at some point, the minivan boarded a "boat" that drove ...
