I am so glad I found your website - the information is fascinating, useful AND practical! I'll be landing at Marco Polo airport after the usual long trip from the U.S. and will take the Aliguna boat to town. I'm sure I'll find my way easily thanks to your step by step fotos! (As long as my bag arrives when I do-)
grazie mille!
