Koror and Palau are wonderful. We stayed two weeks and loved every minute of it. The people are friendly and the climate is fantastic. We visited every aspect of Palau, the beautiful diving, sight seeing both land and air tours and enjoyed eating out. The Rock Cafe is great, and Nacku (spelling) Marine was a must to visit and hang out at. The aquarium was also a great place to visit as well as the Capitol and old light house remains. The tours took us into the country and we visited many WW II ruins. We also saw wonderful sunsets and sunrises as well as rain down pours that were beautiful. it would rain like crazy then the sun would come out and we could see several rainbows everything. we are planing to return again next year.
