This trip/tour was beyond our expectations! It is a must for anyone traveling in the Guanacaste area. The tour guide, captain, and assistant went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying our selves. The captain grilled delicious chicken and fish for our lunch. Cold drinks alcoholic and non alcoholic were provided throughout the trip.
