The tour was super nice and exciting. We saw bats, monkeys, jellyfish, birds, eagles and crabs. Add to that the breathtaking tour of the national park. Plant milk for the coffee and vegan muffins would have been nice. But for lunch a large selection was made for me and another vegan, super tasty and varied. Omnivores also liked to drop by and recharge their batteries. A plant-based selection also makes a lot of sense in nature conservation

Fantastic trip, we were an adult group of five and really enjoyed our day going into caves, being kayaked by our guide. We saw monkeys, a baby ray and a walking fish. Food was fab on the boat too. They also had plenty of soap and sanitiser

Very complete and magnificent tour. Impeccable and comprehensive care. Amazing boat ride. Very long transfer in poor conditions of comfort. The mini bus is not suitable for 2 hours of travel.

We had an amazing experience! The company had great communication with us and our fellow travelers, and they were very kind, fun, and attentive.

everything was perfect, we had an amazing day with amazing tour guides, all very friendly and tasty food and awesome experience
