After a bit of an extended "discussion" about revising pick up time at the ferry dock (11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m). the drive from Chiquila (ferry pick-up port) to Cancun airport was smooth, comfortable, and we arrived with plenty of time for our 3:40 p.m. flight to Chicago. A discomforting moment, however, was when we existed the ferry pier, and no one was waiting with a sign (indicating our name/agency name) amidst many random taxi drivers. After searching for our driver, I finally located him standing behind a range of parked cars looking at his cell phone. Our name and reservation was in his phone; he was quite accommodating once I found him, but it was nerve-wracking for the 5-10 minutes searching, to feel as if no-one had arrived for our transfer. Central company representatives provided excellent follow up to our request for a 1/2 hour shift in pick-up time. The local representatives never responded directly. Drive was excellent; communication before could have been clearer.
Em geral foi uma boa tour mas com muito espaço para melhorar: - Saímos do hotel às 7:30 de Playa del Carmen, e fizemos uma paragem gigante numa estação de serviço que nos fez só sair de Playa às 10 da manhã; - O caminho é péssimo, pelo que as condições do transporte podiam ser melhores - os assentos não são confortáveis e no meu caso fiquei mal disposta o dia inteiro; - A paragem no cenote deveria ser reavaliada, parece-me que perdemos tempo demasiado aqui; - À chegada à ilha, e pelo preço que pagámos (não é uma tour barata) devia ter sido feita uma mini tour, por muito mini que fosse; - Ao almoço... o peixe até pode ser fresco, mas os acompanhamentos são muito mauzinhos e são os mesmos para todos os pratos.
We were met at the airport with a clear sign (with my name) so identifying the driver was easy (amidst the crowd). The local agency representative was welcoming, friendly, and efficient, and our driver was also welcoming, friendly, and the drive to the ferry connecting to Isla Holbox was smooth as could be. Upon arrival at the ferry, our driver arranged for the ferry tickets, we said good-bye, and transferred to the ferry. Couldn't have been easier. A fine beginning to our vacation!
We had an absolute blast! The driver was excellent as was our guide Ehrlan. Very professional but personal as well. Ehrlan was a wealth of information! He spent the time to get to know each of us and told us some very interesting facts about the islands. I will cherish this tour for as long as I live!! I'm ready to go back!!! :)
The trip was very well organized from start to finish with all little details taken care off. Holbox is a magical place that everybody should visit at least once. This tour is highly recommended if you want to experience a Mexican paradise!
