Review / word-of-mouth experience

Hirizo beach snorkeling experience
To celebrate the 60th birthday, I challenged Hirizo Beach snorkeling. It was the third time for me and the second time for my husband, so I was worried, but thanks to my kindness, I was able to snorkel with two people in my free time in the afternoon. I stayed at a guest house on a one-night experience tour, and the fish for dinner was the best. I applied for a guided tour the next day as well.
