When we arrange our vacations, it is common to get excited about the destinations, the food we will eat, the museums we will visit, and even the things we will buy.

Another famous means of transportation among visitors is the Isleños turibus. When you buy this option, you will receive a bracelet with which you may get on and off the bus at the highlights paying only once.

 

While strolling around the island on foot is lovely, walking can be time-consuming. Or, if you are not very good at the art of driving a vehicle, a golf cart would not be a good idea either
