Reviews from this trip

5 stars
  • The trip was amazing. Everyone was very accommodating, the food was great, and I loved the small boat environment and all the people on board.
    Leslie Rondon
  • The rooms were comfortable, clean and well designed so that our belongings could be stored away and out of our way. The food on the boat was terrific. Great chef and great crew....everyone of them. They made our trip a complete pleasure and spoiled us plenty. I highly recommend Ecoventura's Eric, Flamingo and Letty!
