Myself and a group of friends arranged a transfer from our holiday home to the airport. Our van was 25 minutes late leaving us only 15 minutes at the airport to check in. Too much unnecessary stress for our last day. Very disappointing.

Progressive dinner was a good choice for person like me who always wants to try local food. I had buffet style Appetizer, main and dessert. The hosts were so kind and shared their stories in Raro. All the dishes were delicious.
