Everything perfect!

El Cielo is amazing! Such water is only found in the Caribbean. Playa Mia was nice too. You just have to be careful on the slides. Since there is no water flowing down there and things get hot, people like to get blisters at the bottom. Essen was also good there. Only the snorkel stop was not that good. Too many waves, all after the guide and hardly worth seeing corals or fish. The crew is great !!!! Great atmosphere on board.

Great experience

We really enjoyed the trip. The pick-up went well and the day was well planned. The 3 snorkeling spots were very nice. We would have liked to swim further out in the coral reef, but for safety reasons it was not allowed. The food on board and on the beach was perfect. There was enough to drink and eat. The beach area was well maintained. A great day. Very friendly staff and always attentive. Thank you

Excellent trip on the catamaran with Manuel and his friendly staff, always ready to satisfy the requests of the participants in the tour. First stop at the beautiful coral reef led by the expert Manuel, after which beer, margarita and fruit punch offered on board. Second stop the shoal of El Cielo, a heavenly place not to be missed for its colors, for the crystal clear water (1 meter at the lowest point) and for the chance, if lucky, to see some race and starfish. Once you get back, the staff will not make you miss other drinks, music, dancing and fun. The third and final stop is the private beach of Playa Mia where you will find a nice assorted buffet and other drinks included. Return to the departure pier by taxi always included in the tour price. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
