I did the tour to Isla de la Plata and it was perfect. We saw so many whales, dolphines, blue-footed boobies and swam with turtles. The guides were great and I enjoyed every second of the tour.

Kayak was wonderful, and snorkeling was awesome, we're with my family, I recommend you to go when the sun is out, I was there when the weather was foggy, but everything was good, we had a nice time.
