More than 170 000 tourists from around the world come here in search of alcohol and drugs that are sold freely in this small town.

A huge variety of sports activities, including a rather extreme ones, such as rafting in an old wheel of a tractor are available for tourists. Such dangerous entertainment  became a cause of death of many visitors. According to statistics, more than 20 people are killed each year. The resort has a variety of hotels.
