Amazing Jet Boat combo
The Jet Boat Combo outing has just about everything, also at a healthy discount. This is a great experience for the family-starting with a ride in a jet boat where you can enjoy local creatures, flora and fauna.
Then when you step off the boat and into the water, the adventure begins, walking (and sometimes squeezing) in and out of huge stone walls, and then you reach paradise. The waterfalls there drop into a pool where you can enjoy hot springs and peace. Check out all current deals & discounts on activities.
