We just returned from the Legend of the Seas. I had done alot of research for excursions and found this tour of the cave tubing to be the most comfortable. We paid alittle more than some and about the same as others, but the benefits out weight the cost. Nacho takes extra good care of you by stopping roadside to take photos. we were able to get great pictures of the Sleeping Giant mountain. This is a must see!
When you arrive at the tube site he is able to drive right past the Govermental area and park at the Jaguar resort. you can roam thru the resort touring thier facilites seeing the butterflys and birds. You are free to use the nice clean restrooms and after you walk less distance than others do and tube this magnificant river you are treated to dine inside the resort in air conditioning with real tables, silverwear, china plates and tablecloths. We saw the other groups carrying tubes up hills and eating outside with flys, paper plates and plastic forks. We had time to go into the city with Nacho and his crew escorting us thru the shops. Found some extra nice things for cheap! It was a wonderful time! Well worth the little extra. He will entertain you with riddles and his extensive knowledge of the country is very interesting.
we will return I am certain and I would want to use Nacho again
It really is a great time. Dont worry about claustrophobia either. i am very claustrophobic and it was not an issue for me at all.The walk to the river is shorter and I wasn't tired so that might have helped me just enjoy myself and not worry about the cave being closed in or dark. Do use bug spray with deet put it on before you start into the jungle so it can dry before you hit the water.
Don't think I can put links up but email me and I'll be glad to send them to you.
