Amazing, Amazing. It was the experience of a lifetime. For one who has infrequently ridden horses it was a great ride of perfect length. Many times on horse rides the horses just walking slowly along., however, if wanted these horses have some get up and go giving you the adventure you are looking for. Riding the horses along the beach is a beautiful experience as well as watching the horses swim across the river. The owner of this tour is a great man and I would highly recommend this as a must do tour. You get to experience the country side and a beach that it pristine and that is not used by many people. Beautiful place and a beautiful time.

Nice and courteous driver and boat operators Amazing experience well worth the time. Recommend must do for people visiting this region.

Swimming in complete darkness is one of the most exciting experiences and bioluminescence in its greatest splendor.
