    Good anchorage for a visit of the volcano with its mud baths and hot water cascades. You have to take a buoy because 60 meters deep! The Rangers' boat passes at the end of the day and gives you an official ticket (boat identifiable and 54 ec $ per night). The mooring boys, they are only there to help you take the buoy, so tariff to negotiate, usually 20 ec $. In the city, 2 small supermarkets for basic bunkering and a good "baker" near the market street.

    Bon mouillage pour une visite du volcan avec ses bains de boue et les cascades d eau chaude. Il faut prendre une bouée car 60 mètres de fond ! Le bateau des rangers passe en fin de journée et vous donnent un ticket officiel ( bateau identifiable et 54 ec $ la nuit). Les mooring boys , eux ne sont là que pour vous aider à prendre la bouée , donc tarif à négocier, en général 20 ec $. Dans la ville, 2 petits supermarchés pour l avitaillement de base et un bon "boulanger" près de la rue du marché.

    Its a port of entry but i would avoid this place , the town has very little to offer and the boat boys annoying , trying to extort money while you already paid his ‘collegue’ paid 60ec per night
