Next it was the search of the underwater treasure at Punto Iguano, a snorkel adventure that consists on a banana ride to the snorkeling area, where kids and adults had a blast.

In the Inflatable Beach Soccer tournament, the champions were the Marlins. There was a lot of excitement and good plays.

The Classic Starship Race was a success both days, it showed the strength of teamwork as well as the strategies of each of the team members. The winners at the final race were Los Ingleses, the team consisting of: Carl Emberson, Rodney Rosenstein, Brendan Wood and Hugo Van Belle.
