Hello everyone...I went into this with some expectations...these were surpassed in a positive sense.In detail: It undoubtedly takes some courage/overcoming to jump or slide in the individual parts of the waterfall.But sometimes In the end it starts like an addiction and you want to tackle the steep ascent again and start the whole thing all over again. I definitely recommend it...do it...especially since the guides exude confidence and with the "travel guide" Amerikano it's even more fun. Thanks for this great time!

Great event...a special highlight was the speedboat ride across the sea to the island. Talking about an island is a bit of an exaggeration for me...more like an island in the sea...but a dream island! Otherwise everything was ok, especially since Eusebio, a German-speaking guide, accompanied the trip. Oh yes, a must for snorkelers ....!

We really enjoyed this trip. We went to the island by boat. Fish very close, great snorkeling in crystal clear water. We fed the fish with bananas. Then we went by speedboat through the mangrove forest. We will do this tour again.

This tour was AMAZING ! I highly recommend once a once and a life time experience, Alex and Mega tours were the best tour guides, we were taken care of every single step of the way

Eric is great man, talkative and spending time with him was a pleasure. That’s a pity that due to climate change many of the water attractions could not be realized.
