The boat trip with Juan and Miguel was absolutely amazing! We had a very nice and easy exchange via WhatsApp and worked out all the details. The boat was huge and exceeded our expectations. Juan is a super nice and fun skipper. He promised us that it would be the best day of our vacation - and he was right! He even filled the entire fridge with beer and didn't charge us for it. My personal moment was when he put on a big speaker and surprised us with a song, which made me cry (you have to experience it yourself, I won't tell you the secret). We will definitely come back and we are very grateful for this unforgettable experience.
