Very good excursion. The guide is really nice and the organisation is well. One remark during the horse riding the guide told me that he was a volunteer that frustrated me a lot as I didn’t bring money for this activity as the information wasn’t in the description.I recommend to the local agency to add the tips to the excursion price as I don’t think That I was the only one in this case that is not good for the horses guide volunteer that were really nice and helpful.

Very good excursion. Amassing view at el limon waterfall, riding the horse was amazing, lunch tasty , the guide Nata was excellent and beach was also nice. The only problem is transportation and communication with the local agency...we did not receive confirmation for exactly time of pick up and we wait for 5:15 am until 7 am in front of hotel...very frustrating to wake up at 4:30...
Good experience, incredible places ... only that they should improve logistics, since the guides themselves do not agree on what is the next activity and it becomes a relaxation and time is limited, with a better organization may have more enjoyment. The open bar is only at lunchtime. The guide Vic super good !!!
