    The guides were very nice, and the caves visited very pretty. We were 2 groups, one french speaking and the other so spanish speaking, and the guides were switching between english, spanish and french, making sure that we could properly understand, and taking time to answer questions. The snorkeling after visiting the cave was very nice as well, the water was cool, the place beautiful while secluded, and we stayed there quite some time. I highly recommend this experience and this travel guide.

    The boat tour to the islands was nice, you also saw beautiful lesser-known caves and received explanations about them. The guides were great. But the highlight was, after we dropped off the other passengers of the cave tour, we went out to snorkel again alone with the guides. We were given a short explanation and the necessary equipment (luckily a wetsuit, otherwise it would have been quite cold) and then we were allowed to explore ourselves. That was really great and because of the proximity of the boat you feel totally safe. Anytime again and much better than just the normal cave tour.
