This was a great trip and well worth the money although if you attend a time share presentation you can get a better rate than Viator provided. Our gray Line driver took our vouchers without telling us she was not the proper contact for these trips- although she was for our transportation voucher. We hadn't called to check the 2 vouchers she took so we didn't know she didn't represent those companies as well. It made for a sloppy start to our vacation.
We are cruise people and we booked this trip on-line prior to sailing. Cheaper than going through the cruise line, but we had fellow cruisers on the trip with us, same excursion. The "ticket booth" is right where the ship docks, so it was perfect. I wish someone would have written how easy it was to catch the tour off the ship. The trip itself was great! Nice hour and a half boat ride to the beach and the crew was entertaining. Food was great and the setting for lunch was like a tropical paradise. The beach was constantly being groomed and very neat. I would recommend if you don't want to do the shopping route in town.
We loved the trip to Las Caletas. The only regret was there was a lot to take in and not enough leisure time following all of the activities. It would have been nice if we could have stayed longer following lunch. The return time could have been pushed out to 330 to 400PM to allow more time to sun and enjoy the beach.
We enjoyed the tour, the staff was very accommodating, the grounds are beautiful and the lunch was excellent. Unfortunately, it seemed very short - we didn't arrive until 10:00 am and started lining up for the return trip at 2:20. There just wasn't enough time to do all of the actvities. The Viator ad/voucher says the tour includes hotel pick-up, but it doesn't. When we phoned to arrange pick-up time, we were told that we had to find our own way to the marina - unacceptable!
