4 star rating: Recommended May 2011

Tour was great till our driver brought us on a dirt road to a quaint little village and a restaurant that wanted to charg us $58.oo a couple to eat lunch. The salad bar was also $58.00 for two persons. We asked the driver where he would take his wife and two daughters for lunch today? He took us down town to a quaint little outdoor Taco Stand. We had fun and enjoyed this. It pays to speak-up !

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2011

The trip was fine except it seemed as though the guide was more interested in taking us to his friends to buy things. Also, my wife and I had a small red snapper fish and four large prawns for lunch where he stopped and the bill was almost $53 without the tip. I thought it was outrageous and told the guide so. The restayurant owner refused to give us prices before we ate. I should have known we would get ripped off!
