Great trip! Great guide (Jose). The individual islands are very beautiful and invite you to swim and linger in Caribbean colors. The lunch on the boat is small but fine. We really liked Holbox. The stay here should be longer than a good hour. Unfortunately, the cenote did not convince us, rather leave it out and extend our stay in Holbox. Unfortunately, we were given a very small bus for the excursion. Unfortunately, there was no sign of legroom here.

Pick up was at 7:35 am. The big bus was 10 minutes late. First we had to pay the 500 pesos per person in "taxes". Then the approx. 2 hour journey started with comfortable seats. The bus then took us to our destination, where motorized 3-seater Tuc Tucs picked us up. The trip was then another 5 minutes. Then we were divided into smaller boats at the ferry to Holbox. On the way to the island we made a spontaneous stop and saw dolphins. On the island, our guide showed us a few points where we could take photos. That was quite unnecessary and a loss of the limited time on the island, which was 2 hours. Short stops were made at Punta Mosquito and Isla de la Pasión. That was enough in time. We had lunch on the boat and it was delicious. Overall, our guide had very poor knowledge of English. So we got very little information about the island. Overall, the excursion was recommended.

Die Tour war insgesamt sehr gut und gut organisiert. Der Bus kam pünktlich und war sehr geräumig. Nach zwei weiteren Abholstationen ging es nach Chiquila. Die Guides (Jesus und Sergio) erklärten während den Ablauf des Tages, einen kleinen Snack gab es ebenfalls. Von Chiquila aus ging es mit drei Booten, auf die die Gruppe aufgeteilt wurde, zunächst zu einer kleinen Insel bei Holbox. Nach einer halben Stunde Aufenthalt ging es mit dem Boot weiter nach Holbox, wo wir 2 Stunden Aufenthalt hatten. Das Boot fuhr uns abschließend noch zu einer Cenote in der Nähe, die allerdings recht überfüllt und eher unspektakulär war. Daher auch einen Stern Abzug: Die Cenote hätte man sich sparen und stattdessen die Zeit in Holbox verlängern können. Ansonsten eine sehr gelungene Tour mit äußerst netten Guides!
