What people are saying about Cancún

An incredible and unforgettable experience. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience something different and special. Our guide Gonzalo was very kind and took us to the best corners. We started by visiting the reef and saw different types of fish. And after that visit the adventure began… we began to interact with large manta rays and then two turtles visited us. It was incredible!! We still continue with the emotion of the moment. The captain and deckhand were very helpful and made the experience a dream. After this great experience, we visited three cenotes and swam in two of them, always accompanied by Gonzalo, who took some incredible photos of us. The cenotes were very different: in one of them the bottom was a large cave that was impressive. The open had a beautiful marine fauna and flora. During the trip the driver was also very helpful: he offered us drinks and snacks and left us a charger for our camera. They were also very punctual. 100% recommended!!

Big old boat helped to build an atmosphere from the beginning. Stewards explained all the attractions and safety rules. And then the party started: music, beer, some snacks - all in remaining 40 mins ;) In my opinion Isla Mujeres is one of the nicest islands ever! I guess snorkeling was my best activity there. But they have a really nice panorama view in Garrafon Park, very relaxing. Also pics in the infinity pool are a nice souvenir. Zipline was a lot of fun as well. Worth to go to the other side of the island (outside of Garrafon Part) - great beach! Food was quite OK, but I was expecting it to be a bit higher standard as it wasn't the cheapest experience. In general really recommended - it's a good plan for the whole day :)

This was the absolute best tour if you are interested in birds at all. My husband’s hobby is bird photography and this was probably his favorite part of our honeymoon. The driver, Axel, and the guide, Lope, were professional and very friendly! We ended up seeing 52 different bird species in the morning and were provided a delicious homemade breakfast. If we were back in the Cancún area I am sure we would do the tour again!

It was a great tour! Very nice and competent guide! The driver drove very well and conscientiously! We saw several turtles and even manta rays! Visiting the cenotes was super cool! Crystal clear water and lots of colorful fish!! I can highly recommend the tour!!!

Lugo was extremely knowledgeable and determined for us to see as many local birds as possible. Noe was an excellent driver and took really good care of us.
