We loved our trip to Las Marietas. Maggie is an incredible guide and a passionate protector of the Marietas ecosystem - we learned so much from her. This is not a glam tour (no bathroom on boat we took) but snorkeling and spending time with a knowledgeable guide that truly lives this unique and fascinating island chain make it great experience.
