  • I liked the site, tour in which we were us took us to visit the island star, where he had many star Mar, lazy Island, where it is supposed that there are many lazy even though it is difficult to see los(vimos un par de ellos), we also saw dolphins and then took us to comer(muy bueno el pulpo en salsa que te hacen en la isla pequeña donde se para a reservar la comida). After finished making snorkeling and seeing Island slipper, Virgin Island (not quite since if he had some other waste) and very pretty, those islands that look like paradise.
