Wonderful tour☀️

March 18, 2022

The places are beautiful, however, there is very little time to swim on the beach. In the hotel where we had lunch there was a beautiful beach in front of it, but it couldn't be used by those who weren't guests. Breakfast was bad. Anyway, I don't recommend it and I wouldn't do it again.
