It was a very nice experience. 3h walk in the lava paths, and trails around the volcanoes. Such an incredible landscape. It feels like Mars. Alejandro our guide was very clear, he taught us a lot about the environment of the island. He came to pick us up at the hotel and drop us off.

Treba prist trochu skor...v kancelarii je najprv skolenie...dostanete karty ktore odovzdate pri vstupe na ponorku. Kancelaria je od mola cca 100m za kaviarnami. Po skonceni plavby si v kancelarii vyzdvihnete foto s certifikatmi(8€)
