Overall rating

4.0 / 5

based on 246 reviews

Our guide was very informative and very patient with us. One of our guests ended up getting lost on the way to the dock and our guide Mauricio ended up waiting for her and we had a great time on the boat. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and let us stay at each place as long we wanted (we ran out of Time on the last stop but we still had a great time)

It is a private tour of the beaches of Baru or the beach you want to visit. The guide was the best, his name is Jairo, he is a man who knows the area and guides them in prices and places to spend a nice day. I recommend you ask Mr. Jairo thanks to him the tenants did not abuse

Punctuality of the agency in charge, good communication from Guide Jose. The Beach Club with very good attention from everyone. Good food, reasonable prices. Personally, I don't like such a constant offer of handicrafts and massages. But in general very good.

The tour guides were amazing! So accommodating, made our drink for us, stayed with us during the whole time on and off the boat. Recommend this 100%. They worked on our scheduled, never felt rushed.

I had a great time. The water was warm and the people were even warmer.
