    The kayaking was awesome. The scenery was great. Abner and Abner were a great team and very friendly and knowledgeable about Belize. I highly recommend this adventure. Wear aqua shoes with good soles or just rent some when you get there 3$.

    It was surprisingly easy. It was more like a nature walk as the guide was very informative and we went at a fairly slow pace. It wasn’t challenging at all, you would be fine!
