Thanks for reviewing. Although, I need to clarify that this type of service you took is not with O Verde Eco & Adventure Tours, it was directly with the guide. Another thing is, we don´t promote going straight to the waterfall (by your self) and...More

Very friendly and outgoing staff! We went snorkeling for a day. There was organized snorkeling for a few hours, and then a number of beach visits where you could continue snorkeling on your own or do other beach activities. I recommend them.
