Extremely fun

December 13, 2019

We arrived at 10:20 am after having received an email telling us to arrive at 10:30 am, but we were surprised to see our boat places allocated to other people faster although we had booked ... We had to fight for more than 3 hours to be able to go boating and cancel several activities because we had already paid for it. Regarding the boat trip, it goes extremely fast, there is no time to enjoy and appreciate the sensations. This activity is far too expensive for what is offered. That said, the boat operator was kind enough. I strongly advise against.
