Kayak or Cayuco?
Depending on the area you choose, you may have the option of a plastic kayak or the “Cayuco”, the local hand-made canoe made of one single piece of wood. The kayak is commonly known for being an easy paddle for beginners, while the Cayuco offers a new and different experience. It is faster and better shaped. And with a few pointers and a 15 minutes of practice you’ll be ready to be on your way!
