All organized very well. Easily found the meeting point where we were greeted by the friendly and nice guides. They explained to us how the tour would take place and given the option to leave backpacks and get dressed by them. Miguel acted as a guide in the kayak, continuously explaining the whole coast and the caves we visited. Overall a really good choice.

Onlinereservierung alles perfekt funktioniert; Verleihteam unkompliziert und sehr freundlich, jedoch viel zu viele Touristen am Strand und im Wasser, es fuhren zu unserem Erstaunen sogar Jachten in die Grotte, verrückte Welt!
