It was fantastic!!! Spectacular!!! The views, the caves, the waters,... Everything!!!! 100% recommendable In addition, we had a very attentive and careful guide with us. We knew that the visit was going to be in French and he had the detail of translating the explanations into Spanish with Google.

A superb experience with a guide who shared his knowledge with us and a good time with a nice touch of humor! I highly recommend this sea trip on this speedboat which allowed us to enjoy the trip under the sun but without suffering from it!

Perfect activity!! Magnificent visit with a swim in the turquoise waters, sublime! And the driver is just awesome
