Island facilities

tourist center - travel office - exchange

The "Tourist Center" has a small super market, travel agent, money change, safe deposit boxes for your valuables, Internet center and other small services to offer. Here you can cash VISA and withdraw - but for a commission charged. Internet is in good working condition and should have broadband by now. This is one of the few places where laptops are welcome. The network configuration is somewhat different and unusual - ask the system admin, a young and knowledgeable man for help the first time you are there with your laptop.

Another Internet access - very modern and may be the very fastest is station 167 - just left of "Cafe del Sol" in d'mall !! separate desks for laptop guests show that laptops are more than welcome. Seats like a chef let you enjoy hours of working online. Enjoy. And if while working online you get hungry at station 167 - they have a snack bar in the Internet room and below - ground floor - a restaurant open 24 hrs.
