  • Elegant and will certainly be enjoyable for tourists. Oh try out their homemade ice tea. I found it great (a bit sweet though).
  • Good place to buy local crafts, ranging from spears to jewelry. There's also an opportunity to browse at the book store or to sample some food at the restaurant.
  • Good centre, but items can be expensive compared with local markets. Cafe on site, which serves great coffee and food. Friendly and efficient staff.
  • A must visit. Prices realistic!
  • You will always find an appropriate gift here.
