I went in 96 and have not been back. Things must have changed since then. They had a fence to keep the locals from getting close. They were all yelling to see about taxis.
I enjoyed the falls, but when finished you could not walk 1 foot without being harrassed. They had it where you had to go thru a flea market to exit back then.
You definatly could not walk anywhere then from the ship. I am glad to hear it is better.
