This is a must activity in the island. It is a big boat with a lot of people in it. The travel is pleasant, nice views. And the crew is always dancing and singing. But be aware that once you arrive in the beach, you can not relax. You will be approached for several sellers that will try to force you to buy food, horse rides... And the beach was not clean.

Great. Provide hats because it is very hot on the boat during the crossing. Otherwise a very good activity. Very good meal. Good atmosphere.

Both the owner of Depart Travel Services and our guide for the day were amazing! We learned so much and had a GREAT time!
