  The habor, isoanierana Ivongo.
by gazellen

This little village, is the spot from were you can take a boat to Ile st. marie, or the place to find some transportation if your are going further up the east coast. But you might not be lucky to get any transportation, as all the trucks are likely to be filled totally up. Then you have to go strait back to Toamasina, instead of spending days waiting as we did !!! In Toamasina you buy a ticket at the main station, try to pay a little extra to get the front set, believe me you wont regret it !!

I was stocked in Isora Ivongo for days....Not much happen in this town.....This is really of the beaten path.
The boat that goes for Ille st marie, are not the safest... they are mostly overcharged, and in a bad shape !! Adventure is garanteed.

If you take the boat, you shoul ask for a life jacket.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
