The guide that I had was older and he had plenty of experience. Thank you for helping me shed some of my doubts on surfing and start into this incredible sport. Your stories and your words of encouragement inspired me.

I didn’t know what to expect with a 4 x 4 tour but I was very pleased to explore some of the jungle trails and how relaxing the experience was. This is one of the best ways that you can see some of the remote parts of the island without having to hike in and expel a lot of energy! Me and my mother loved it.

Great combination of hiking and off-road tour, our tour guide and driver were knowledgeable of all the surrounding and plants, the dip at the waterfall was refreshing and cool,

We took this tour not knowing what we would experience but there are no regrets, it was more than what we had expected for, we even saw wild pigs on the road, it was a true surprise. My son took lots of pictures of the entire coastline of the island from the top of the mountains, we loved it, the guides make it very fun all the trip on the piglet, by the way, it is very bumpy but fun.
