We had a great time with Jeremy and Abner. Jeremy and Abner went through an extensive guided tour about the country, the park and the tour itself, starting from the port to the park, and to the river. The caves were great and the guides were great. Highly recommend.

We loved the kayaking in caves! It was a spectacular experience. Did about a 45 minute hike to the point where the kayaks were already in place at the start of one of the cave systems. We had lifejackets and helmets with headlamps and a great guide took us around. Only take
