Had a Jeep Safari guided tour with Henrique. He was very knowledgable and took us everywhere on the island. It is a very beautiful and unique island of the Azores. We had a lot of fun with Henrique, highly recommend Bootla.

Henrique was a fantastic coasteering guide and the activity was amazing. We saw the beauty of Santa Maria in a unique way and as beginners felt totally safe and comfortable throughout. One of the best holiday experiences ever.
