Lunch at Islas de Gigantes means you'll eat a lot of seafood. Fish, prawns and squid are caught fresh by local fishermen, so seafood here can't get any fresher! Forget about the spoon and fork, here at Islas de Gigantes, we do it Pinoy style! If you are allergic to seafood, or certain types of seafood, just inform the Las Islas team beforehand so they can prepare something for you.

I guess someone talked too much, it looks like this secret lagoon is no longer a secret. During high season, it is said that Tangke can get really crowded. But I don't mind, the crowd doesn't really bother us. Just enjoy every moment of the tour and don't think too much of getting postcard perfect photos.
So there you have it. It has been a whole day of fun at Islas de Gigantes. If you feel that a day-tour is not enough for you to fully experience the islands, you can also book an Overnight Package with Las Islas Travel and Tours. For a closer-to-nature experience, you might want to spend the night in a tent.
