Not many details were provided and no one spoke English. Thankfully my Spanish is decent but if you didn’t know Spanish or are a picky eater I would recommend a different tour or be prepared to bring your own food. As expected, no hot showers and accommodations were extremely basic but overall clean. You get power for about 3 hours a day and get a pretty basic breakfast/lunch/dinner. There was a small recreation room with a pool table and a small pool but between activities there wasn’t much to do so bring something to do during downtime. Staff was accommodating and friendly.
