You do this as part of your A and it’s cool! You need to hire a kayak for 300 pesos when you get off your boat and You cruise around.

We were lucky enough to be dropped off at the lagoon at 5:30am in our kayak and were the first ones there, it was truly magical and and unforgettable moment having the whole lagoon to ourselves.
