This was a nice tour, tour guide Juan was funny and crazy, they will try to sell you souvenirs at the beach, don't pay initial price you can always negotiate, food was good, truck seats not that comfortable

Very nice lagoon, lots of egrets and mangroves. Locals are nearby and you see wildlife as well as vultures and fish.

I did not like it. Very basic and not much to see. We sailed through smelly water and did not see anything other than birds in the trees.

Ask them to take you see the Corals and if you have a chance ask for a guy named Sigfrido, he is the best, he would take you to the nicest places to seee.

Went on a boat ride. Amazing birds. The lagoon lead you to this breathtaking entrance to the sea where you can visit caves and other beaches. Just lovely!

No, not at all. You can simply look at the lagoon; you do not need to go in. There are a lot Of rocks so you can always stand on a rock with your feet in the water or near the waters edge if you want to get a picture... More
