Power Tower

The station commands stunning views of the island for a reason. It was built high up as a way for the authorities to keep watch for approaching trouble. At the station, sentries did guard duty, signaling early warning to the government of approaching ships or impending slave uprisings. Now, the high position of these look-out stations just means a gorgeous panorama for tourists to view, stretching both ways right to the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

The trail through the forest, included in THE admission to the station, is worthwhile as long as you don't mind a path that's a bit uneven and sloping. On the path, see the characteristic green monkeys and a cave occupied by fruit bats, along with a profusion of luxuriant forest plants.
