Plaza Copal was great for activities. He is very knowledge and helpful. I would recommend him for any activity. We stated at the Dreams Las Meuraias and found him on the beach.

My wife and I first heard of Ulf and his trips from another couple staying at our resort. They did one trip with them and loved it. They wished they had done several more with him instead of going through the resort so we decided to get his info and contact him. We emailed him and he responded within the... More

We heard about this for company from another couple at our resort. Ulf was knowledgeable and interesting, knew what to do and showed us an amazing day! He is able to easily get you thru the border and back from the borders easily. We had a great time and I am sure ANYTHING you want to see or anywhere you... More

Ulf and his team serve delicious food at very good prices and are the best around. Ask for the sea food or the whole fish - its just yummy. The restaurant is located off the main road, but you can also walk to it from the beach where you are kiting in 10 min through the farm lands he owns... More
