The weather in the islands is generally warm but there are some months where we have some rain, so it will be a good idea to bring a rain jacket. Of course don’t forget your sunscreen, swimsuits, sunglasses, comfortable shoes and of course a camera. If you liked the experience and want to do an extra immersion you can pay extra directly to the guides.
