The luminous lagoon itself was excellent. You arrive to a bar/restaurant and can eat/drink there before or after your trip. Annoyingly we were offered the opportunity to stop at a souvenir shop en route and it was an unenjoyable experience in a warehouse like shop - not local at all. A woman followed us around the shop ushering us to buy things. Wouldn’t recommend that aspect.

It was great, such an unique experience and we learn a lot too. The guides and captain were funny, knowledgeable and very helpful. Even if you can't swim, there're lifeguard vest on board that you can wear so you won't miss this one in a lifetime swim. The water is warm, so don't be afraid to go in the water. You should bring a towel, water shoes and your good mood!

Michael was our driver, and he gave us a phenomenal tour as we drove to the lagoon. It was amazing. The colors were super vibrant and we got some great photos! We felt like wizards as we swam around the glowing lagoon.

The driver gave an excellent history about the area and the lagoon. I liked the fact that he was on time and we were able to spend some time at the area before taking the boat.

Great excursion. Party of 4 and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip
