Hugo and his companion took us to very beautiful places. It was a mix of sailing and motor propulsion but that didn't detract from the experience! We had a brief thunderstorm, but it had completely passed after 30 minutes. Great pictures, grandiose landscape, wonderful bathing in the emerald green water. We were 10 people on the catamaran, but that was totally ok and we all had enough space.

We really loved the trip. Our guides Omar and Angel have made it unforgettable. They explained a lot about the lagoon in good English. They were very funny, we had a lot of fun. We always felt secure on the boat because they really knew how to manage their boat. Even when wind and rain came up. Also the service with drinks (cervezita) and snacks (fruits) was really nice. All in all, we can recommend doing this trip and hope you'll get these two guys as guides, too :)

The reception wasn’t that great, since we had to look for our sailors ourselves. It was a little confusing that they weren’t there to greet us. However, Lucca and Diego made it all up with the fun and lovely tour. We had such a great day out on the water and they knew what they were talking about when it came to sailing. It was also easy to communicate with them, because their English was good. Combined with perfect weather and nice conversations with the whole group, we had a great time.
