A well organized trip. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of information to us. What I particularly liked was the timely information about the intermediate stops. So you knew exactly when the toilet break was! Important !!!!

We really enjoyed this trip. We went to the island by boat. Fish very close, great snorkeling in crystal clear water. We fed the fish with bananas. Then we went by speedboat through the mangrove forest. We will do this tour again.

It was a wonderful experience, and had the worth of the price. The whole tour was perfectly organized, our guide Eusebio was very friendly and helpful. The lunch was delicious. Thanks for this great day.
