Wonderful trip! The landscapes are breathtaking. Be careful though, when the ocean is rough (orange flag) with big waves and current, swimming can be more complicated to get to the cave. But it's worth it. The guides were lovely and led us to a secret beach to spend the afternoon. Incredible experience.

It was all great, the guys super friendly and attentive. They also spoke Spanish. You do not have to worry about anything and you pick up the kayak and return it on the same shore of the beach, they take care of taking it to the stand

Onlinereservierung alles perfekt funktioniert; Verleihteam unkompliziert und sehr freundlich, jedoch viel zu viele Touristen am Strand und im Wasser, es fuhren zu unserem Erstaunen sogar Jachten in die Grotte, verrückte Welt!

We booked online the night before, got an Uber to the location and it was fantastic! All the guys were so lovely and helpful. We had a fabulous hour kayaking!

I went with my couple in a shared board and it was so fun! We had full autonomy with the board and we visited amazing caves
