Erick and Carlos were great -- friendly, knowledgeable, and perfect English. Karin, our Night Tour guide, also was knowledgeable and very sweet. However, both tours (Night Tour and Cano Island Snorkeling) were at best mediocre. On the night tour, we didn't see any large animals,...More

We learned a lot and saw a bunch of cool animals. Freddy was a great guide. It's a bit crowded in the main area, at least when we went in December. The multi-day tours are probably worth it to get off the beaten path if...More
