Passengers from the NCL Dawn on the New Years cruise. The port was very busy. It was easy to find Vitalino's group with their yellow shirts. Very friendly and accommodating to all. We drove for 45 minutes to get to the river. Many other buses and travel companies, and also lots of other people. Vitalino supplies very nice equipment. Their is about a 20-30 minute hike to the river. My husband and I wore water shoes. Very rocky path, and I would advise people to wear Keene or Teva type sandals, or some old tennis shoes would work better. Possibly leave them there for a donation to the locals?
Once at the river we got into the river with at least a couple 100 of our "closest friends", and floated through the caves. Reminded us all of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney. Lunch was a highlight. It really was good, and the rum punch made for a much more lively ride back to the port!
