This was a nice tour. Lorenzo, our guide, did a great job. While snorkeling, we saw hammerheads, sea turtles, rays, etc.
Wonderful experience; tour guides were great!
Again Brian was excellent step ahead of everybody’s needs with hot tea, or towels Whatever we needed. Carlos was great, he actually took the time to get to introduce everybody on the tour. Asking where we are free and favorite animal. The 9 of us got along well and talked more after that introduction’s it made it very present. Compared to the second day.
