    Loved this trip! Was not sure what to expect and they did not tell us ahead of time what the plan was. 1st island you have a choice of snorkeling first or going straight to the island to do whatever you want ie. kayak, banana boat, order drinks, lounge, explore. Second island options: to hike to a waterfall first or hang at a different beach with shopping and a restaurant. The waterfall was AMAZING! and refreshing with a little bar to order drinks. I recommend you bring your $$ to souvenir shop. Wish I would have planned for shopping on Yelepa out of all places. Also eat breakfast before going if you need it. They don't really have a continental bk, just juice and coffee. Lunch was cold sandwiches and salads with fruit and was good. The trip back was entertaining with music and dancing and open bar. The crew was amazing and took great pictures for us to purchase if we wanted. I would definitely go again more prepared with plenty of pesos on hand.

    Our Captain, Carlos was great, personable, and knowledgable about what there is to do in PV. The crew was great as well (Chistian and Alex). The food was authentically out of this world. The sun however bites if you are on the deck without sun screen.
