    Very beautiful place and surround. But everything occupied with a canoe and kayaking rent, no place to park the car and no possible to swim. Not very friendly locals.

    A little small, but quite interesting. The guide was good fun. French wax his native language but his English was still good and he told some good jokes. The caves are smaller than we expected.
