  • We took the tour to prison Island and later we were taken to this sand bank, where we prepared a delicious meal, with seafood, fish drinks and fruit and had a time to enjoy and bathe. The place was a paradise and with Eric It was all very simple and enjoyable. It is very professional and has very good prices, so q if you need a contact for any excursion of the island or make transfers, he thus manage everything (+ 255 624 09 79 61). You can't stop going!
