Beside them changing the trip time few hours before the original time and still show up later ... the triP itself is worth It . Beautiful beach and nice hike to the waterfall . Make sure you eat at the cafe there ran by the coast guards . They might tell you on the bus it’s very expensive , but it’s average . Very good food , and you got the beach to look at .

Joe was cool. She kept us all well informed. A great hike to the first falls. Beautiful area. A word to the wise...and old. Joe is a fitness instructor, so you want to be ready for the coastal hill hike. You will get amazing views, but Joe will make you earn it! Lol
