The tour was very well organized and met expectations. Unfortunately the fish market was closed (Sunday), so we had to rely on our fishing luck, which also worked thanks to the careful guide. Unfortunately, the weather conditions were not so good that we could not fish in the deeper water, where larger fish would have been expected. The tour with the catamaran was also very interesting, but it would have been useful to point out that normal sun protection is not sufficient. You are completely in the sun all the time, so pack a cloth for protection or at least 50 sunscreen. On the final tour of the lagoon, there were still many animals and the mangroves to see, partly how the fishing families live. Overall recommended, especially Norman as a guide.
