Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I spent 3 weeks there as I was volunteering at a hostel, but I’d recommend 1 week or less being enough.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    no

  • How was the food?

    Cafe Campastre in Santa Cruz. I’d recommend any of the curries, they’re some of the best I’ve had anywhere in the world.

  • Packing tips?

    Pack hiking shoes for the trek!

  • Transportation Tips?

    Rent a scooter or motorbike! Other than the unreliable chicken bus it’s the only way to get around.

  • Any surprises?

    How big the island was and with everything so spread out this makes it very difficult to get from place to place.

  • Booking details?

    Book a few days in advance if possible.
