Tour offers open sea trips to observe dolphins and humpbacks. We were not lucky enough to see a humpback, but we saw many dolphins and sea turtles. Also having a lunch on the sea 40 kilometers far from land is extraordinary experience.

Due to a planning squeeze I trusted Sierra to organize a 3 day event with National Park, whale tour and snorkeling at coco. Big mistake. Sierra is outsourcing everything else than the whaling to Rancho Tours and heavily overcharging for that. My advise is to...More
