Well organized eco tour. The main attraction is floating down a CLEAR river, with lots of fish. You literally swim among them, can almost touch them! The operator provides all the equippement necessary. Really worth the visit! Lunch is also very good !

The water is very clear, but don't expect an aquarium full of tropical fish. The whole tour is very relaxing and the food afterwards is also great. The farms is great and the equipment provided is excellent.
