    The place is extraordinary. The guide, Elodie, didn’t let me translate from French to Spanish because she couldn’t keep the concentration, or so she said. Then she complained about having to go out to fetch a paper with some translations. It’d be great if the guide was nicer I such a great place.

    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.
