A well organized trip, the beauty was absolutely out of this world. Our trip organizer definitely knew his business. We went to all the right places to see all the right scenery and nature.

Very beautiful place! Definitely worth going here and doing a boat ride! I did the Jucy Cruise boat tour, and they took us all throughout the waters and even took us directly next to some of the waterfalls!
