It was a safe and beautiful trip.
Dianne_B, Sept 2023
The drive is long, but nice. Our tour guide Jose was fantastic, very knowledgable and spoke good english. All the people we met and spoke with were very friendly and welcoming. The first part of the hike is easy and gorgeous through the ravine. We also went to see the mud caves and the are area where the water comes out in the caves. We had a lovely and authentic lunch at the restaurant at the caves area. She gaev us tastings of the food and everything was delicious! The last part and the best part was worth the whole drive. The water was refreshing and the area is beautiful. We played around in the water and on the rocks with not a lot of other travelers. The stairs back up were the most difficult part of the whole day. It was a safe and beautiful trip.
