Lizbet was great. She understood our preferences and tried to accommodate them.

The first accommodations were perfect. I challenged lizbet on the second accommodations and she said we were booking late and that was all she could get. I would not recommend the Stracta Apartments. There are no restaurants nearby, no host or anyone to talk to, not sure about the safety there, so I did not go out to run by myself, and, very frustrating, it is not on Google maps. Making it difficult to navigate.

Kayaking was cancelled due to wind.

Missed hot pools due to baggage delivery system breaking at the airport causing a 2 plus hour delay.

Ice cave tour was outstanding
Food recommendations were very helpful.
Maps and turn by turn guide got us to all out destinations.
Lizbet, thank you for the descriptions of all the nearby waterfalls and other tourist attractions. Extremely helpful.

Enthusiasm of guides. Each vehicle group is kept separate so small groups, easier to hear.
