Definitely worth seeing. In the off-season (end of September) there were 6 of us. In the cave. The lady who was the guide told us interesting facts. Definitely worth seeing for the money. You can also walk from dirt within 10 minutes to a small ruin down on the beach.

Great outing. We booked last minute, excellent scenery and the swimming was phenomenal with the clearest blue water. Expect to pay for extra for an underwhelming lunch. Overall, definitely worth it.

Very nice guides who tried to translate everything for everyone. We also had more fearful ones and the group was very responsive to them. Top

Great activity, really friendly and fun stuff. Beautiful views on the zip line, great emotions! Really well spent money, totally worth it!

Great team, great and long boat trip with lots of stops for swimming!
