    Thanks so much for your feedback James. We're so glad you had a fantastic time (hiking to a volcano sounds amazing) and will pass on your feedback about the change of beach location. We'd hate for anyone's trip to end on a not-so-perfect note.

    Our tour was great but we seemed to be the only people on an 8 day tour in the middle of everyone else’s 1 day tour. That groups flight was delayed so our first day started later than expected & they all seemed to have more information than we got.

    A great itinerary, it was fast paced and allowed me to see and visit lots of places in a short period of time. Our guide Cesar was fantastic, so passionate and knowledgable.
