Is there a shuttle from Liberia? I am a single traveler, is it a good place to stay as a single person, safe and is there great hikes close by? Would love to do a canopy zip line tour or other adventures, too. Thank you for your honest response. Toni ;-)

How far are you from the beach and is there a shuttle back and forth or do you need a car
17 March 2016
  • Response from Geoff RReviewed this property
    You are about 10 minutes walking, from the beach It is a dusty road. So having a car is a big plus. People do it without, but I would recommend it.
Where is the nearest airport?
