Wonderful day. The price / quality ratio is insane. On the other hand, I advise you to have good shoes & I recommend to be independent for the movements because it is hiking in the mountains! Said is very sunny and adorable. Restaurant feet in the water. Not the best but the setting is crazy & inexpensive. I recommend this excursion.
