    We recommend wearing layered clothing, a windbreaker, rain jacket, and good walking shoes. Rain showers are common and unpredictable.  

Remote communities that are seldom visited by travelers do not have the tourist-related infrastructure common in bigger ports.

This is off the beaten track, so don’t expect professional guides, tour buses, or fancy souvenir shops. Isn’t this exactly the charm of these isolated settlements? In these places, we will likely land in small boats (RIBs), meet the representatives of the community at the landing site, and be guided by locals eager to show us the best of their villages.  

We may enjoy a singing or dance performance, taste local food, see craft demonstrations, visit a small museum, enter a church, see the social center, or stroll through the local market. Whatever they prepare for us, it is sure to be a unique experience prepared from the bottom of their hearts.
