Excellent trip and staff. Boat was also very well kept and appreciated that they took the time to make sure it was kept clean and tidy. Only downside was the beach at Taboga Island has a lot of garbage on it and in the water, but that does not reflect on the trip operators. It would be nice for the authorities at Taboga Island to at least put trash cans on the beach for people to use.

great vibes, beautiful catamaran, smooth ride, and delicious drinks and food on board. would recommend to anyone wanting to spend a day at the beach and meeting new folks. The Taboga village was great and the waters were clear! 10/10 recommend
