Great day with Alex as a guide, the trip was really great!

Many hours for just 5 minutes to see birds, 15 minutes looking for dolphins (we saw some) and 20 minutes looking for turtles (we didn't see any). They give you the impression that you are going to see a lot of fauna, crocodiles, manaies, etc. and then when you ask they confess that they barely see you. The natural pool is very close to the coast, so it doesn't do anything special... You often see sand promontory in the Mediterranean where it reaches up to the waist and has never been sold as a natural pool. The food was scarce, not very tasty and without dessert, not even a piece of fruit. Snorkeling was impossible because of the waves, I wonder if it is ever possible, since the reef is nearby and the waves break there. The best, seeing the mangroves and the guide Gabriel. The exorbitant price for what this excursion entails
