It was a great experience overall I would recommend everyone to try it. We were picked up a little late by our driver but getting there did not take too long. The overall experience was great however I would say be prepared because it mostly chips and drinks (sodas, water, beers).

We had so much fun snorkeling for the first time! The guide (Alex) had lots of knowledge especially about the different kind of fish wich made this activity super interesting and fun! Sadly there was not enough wind to do the “para-sailing“…but that meant that we could even go snorkeling twice! 10/10 would recommend this experience

Great organization and service! The reef was not a highlight compared to other snorkel spots, but overall ok. You drive from the Beach Club to two reefs. A special highlight was the parasailing as a surprise!! You are lifted several meters above the sea on an umbrella on the anchored catamaran and can enjoy the view of the coast! Lunch was back on land. The beach there is just gorgeous!
