Dolphins, turtles and snorkeling in the coral reef were great. Even if the snorkeling itself was a bit fast, we saw a lot of corals and fish. The arrival was negative. The ropes laid on the streets so that the frenzy is slowed down can go badly on the cross.

Usually it would be a 3 out of 5 but because I found the guide and the captain very good, I make a 4 out of it. The excursion is fine, but nothing more. One spends relatively little time in the Sian Ka'an biosphere and relatively much on the way there. We consisted of a group of only 6 people which was very pleasant. We saw dolphins and turtles (very close and relatively unrushed). Snorkeling was far too short for me. The food was delicious by default. It was very good for being at the end of the world.

The pick-up was almost on time at the hotel and the driver was very nice. We drove to the collection point where you could have breakfast and change. The tour guide came there and explained everything in English and Spanish on the trip. After a long drive we boarded boats on you and saw the first dolphins after 20 minutes, after half an hour of turtles, which unfortunately only showed up twice, various birds and flamingos were also to be admired, made a stop to snorkel and were on the beach where that Water was simply delicious. Lunch was also delicious and plentiful. On the way back we saw a crocodile in the water. All in all a nice trip. Only the journeys are really long and hose in the evening. I would recommend it
