What people are saying about Santana

It was a great experience. Viktor especially our guide was great. The trip to the whales and dolphins with the catamaran was good, but we would have preferred a German translation, especially since we were asked beforehand whether we speak German.

dolphins, whales, offroad adventure - we enjoyed very much, nice trip
