What people are saying about Oaxaca

Few dolphins but whales extra. Great French-speaking guide (Alexandre), full of anecdotes and a great culture. We could also see turtles, sea snake (be very poisonous) and finally a band of pelicans.

Aside from the initial forgetfulness but the agency recovered by sending a person specifically to the hotel, we sailed for about two hours seeing whales, dolphins and turtles.

Martin fue muy buena gente! La experiencia fue hermosa! Espero visitar de nuevo y recomendar esto a otras personas :)
