We were told that the 'boat' would be submerged throughout the trip and because we had bags with phones etc that we couldn't risk getting wet, we ended up not going. We wasted our money unfortunately.

A mi y a mi novio nos gustó mucho la experiencia, la repetiríamos 100%. Los chicos del taxi fueron super amables, super puntuales y atentos. La isla muy bonita y el paseo en taxi muy muy divertido.
