Apart of loving nature and the island, Emanuel will show you the character of its people and their sense of humour.

Usually when you pay for a guide you expect to find out something from the hike you take. But in this case the guide stayed behind and unless you count the safety instructions from the beginning we didn't find something extra. Yeah... we got safe...More
