The tour was very well organized and lived up to expectations. Unfortunately, the fish market was closed (Sunday), so we had to rely on our fishing luck, which also worked thanks to the careful guide. Unfortunately the weather conditions weren't great so we couldn't fish in the deeper water where larger fish would have been expected. The catamaran tour was also very interesting, but a note would have been appropriate here that normal sun protection is not sufficient. You are in the sun all the time, so pack a cloth for protection or at least 50 sunscreen. During the final tour through the lagoon, there were still many animals and the mangroves to see, also partly how the fisherman families live. Overall recommended, especially Norman as a guide.
