Our Baños guide Angel was phenomenal. He was hilarious, extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and full of excellent recommendations. The experience itself was one of a kind. Every activity was more exhilarating than the last. If you only have a few days to take in this gorgeous place, this is the tour for you!
