Recommended by the guides’ wife the night before at her restaurant, we were happy to experience something different than going to the beach. Most often you would think of a tour on the ocean, but this was rather a tour down the river, filled with...More

Beautiful wooden boat with a wonderful local guide. Full of knowledge and good boatmanship. Luis was a great guide and the scenery was amazing. We loved the wooden boat.
