    This place is simply phenomenal. It is 100% worth the money. We booked it with Tui and was picked up from our hotel at 7:30, arriving at the park at opening hours. My girlfriend and I purchased the photo experience (50% off with Tui) which we both agreed was worth it. There are

    If you love water , this is the place for you. Let me start by saying the water is NOT cold, and this makes it so easy to spend the day in the water. You have to wear a life jacket and there are tons around the park, so don't be too concerned If you're not a strong swimmer.

    Great day, but too many activities at “an additional cost”
    We had a great day snorkelling, I recommend beginning this activity first as the river fills up with tubers later
