  1. Stalis sounds like the ideal vacation spot for me and my party. I don’t want to be anywhere that is too hectic or filled with high priced location. I like that Stalis has a good mix of watersports, beaches and educational things that families can do together. The museum should ensure that everyone is able to learn a little more about the country.
