It was wonderful! I can absolutely recommend the snorkeling tour. The guide was great and we saw lots of beautiful, colorful fish, as well as a pregnant female stingray and a barracuda. Photos and videos were also taken, which were sent by email for a small additional charge.

It was indescribable. The length is great. If there was any criticism at all, it would be at a very high level. Maybe not so loud music.

Really good zoo, the shows were amazing too. They also run shuttle buses to certain hotels on the island which was very helpful

Everything was great. The guide was very nice, the food tasted good. And we even saw dolphins. Thank you so much!

There was no guide! And we had to find out own way there
