It's a bit of a hike to get there, but well worth it. More than just pizza, a fundamental part of the ingredients are cultivated right there.

Took us a while to get through the dark jungle. But when we got there we order expensive pizza and drinks. The drinks was maybe the worst. Watered down with no taste. Sad to spoil the rum. Pizza arrives and it is extensivly salty and very boring. Must be very cheap to make. We where very dissapointed!
