What people are saying about Olhos de Agua

Incredible experience and highly recommend booking with the local BrotheRootz! Our guide, Caio, was phenomenal - he’s friendly, knowledgeable and fun! And as BrotheRootz keeps their group sizes relatively small, the experience felt personalized and extra safe relative to alternative larger group settings. Also, the SUP was a great way to explore and all skill-levels can participate (we had a SUP first-timer in our group who loved the experience)! Thank you BrotheRootz for an awesome memory!

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.
