I didn’t know paradise like this existed in real life. Unbelievable scenery. Paradise perfected. The Turtle Nursery in Mano Juan is a must. Señor Negra is saving this island and more. The snorkeling and swimming are the best anywhere. Guides are awesome, lunch was delicious, and the dancing was so much fun! I would take this tour again and again and again!!!

I was apart of Danny Boy Family group and he was amazing. He made sure everyone felt safe and looked after. The beach was amazing and we had a little area to our group. They offer rum or beer and you can get as much as you want. I would not recommend to being your kids because some people got drunk. The blue lagoon was very clear and beautiful.

Loved every minute of it! Definitely worth it! 10/10 The price for all of the activities was more than we could ask for. Water was provided on some of the platforms for the zip line sows could stay hydrated. They truly did treat us like we were family!

We loved it! The guide was so helpful and he answered all of our questions.

More like a show, the more you drink the more it becomes more like a club
