Isla San Lucas is not famous like other prison islands in the world, like Alcatraz and Robben Island - but it has an equally interesting history. Thank you Lesilie for your review from the tour - we are very happy that you enjoyed the tour. I had a great time showing you around on the former prison island. More

We went on the snorkeling and monkey tour and it was a lot of fun. Our guide Jeff was great, very interactive and very funny. The reefs we saw were great and we were able to see thousands of beautiful fish. It is nice that it's a smaller group (8 people) as we don't like bigger, less personal outings. The... More

We had a great boat tour off of Playa Hermos where Evaristo was our amazing guide. Captain Hendre was expert at bringing the boat in for easy launch & debarqation as well as a fas, smooth ride right to the spot where we could see dolphins up close. The tour included snorkeling, but since the water was murky they made... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour! We unfortunately didn't speak much Spanish so we felt like we missed out on what he was explaining. It was beautiful though and romantic!

My husband and I loved our stay at this wonderful little lodge! We arrived Monday evening for the bioluminescence tour. We were greeted at the gate by the owner Thomas, Grisham (one of the owners cats), and Bella (the owners dog). The bioluminescence tour is hands down one of the coolest things we've ever done! There was a storm moving... More

You won't find this elsewhere-bioluminescent plankton in a pristine setting. We're in Tambor just for this and it was worth the flight! While Puerto Rica may have something similar, the experience in calm waters on a moonlit night with 6-8 others is amazing. From novice to expert kayakers, all will enjoy the warm water, expert guide and phenomenal experience. Do... More

We went night kayaking in the bioluminescence bay and this turned out to be the highlight of the trip! The guide was very gracious and calming while guiding us in the pitch black waters. He pointed out fish that were jumping and explained why the algae in the bay light up from motion. It was a surreal experience as the... More
