It was an amazing trip. Although the bus trip was really long (more than 3 hours per way), the trip was superexcellent. You can see crocodiles really close, a lot of flamingos, the mud bath was fresh and the swim at the lonely beach very cool. The meal, you could choose between chicken, fish and vegetarian looks really nice (I had the fish ceviche and it was awesome). Our guide, Carlos, did a really good job, telling us about the pink lagoon, the cenote, the culture. Due to some snacks and water offered by the team, it felt good to be part of the group.

It was a very nice & unforgettable tour! Our guide Genaro was great! He tried to get the best out of the (unfortunately) very long drive. Very entertaining and great music! We were well taken care of with drinks, sandwiches & biscuits! Lunch was delicious too! We looked at the Pink Lake from Las Colorados, did a very cool boat tour, could go swimming if we wanted to & at the end we went to a "crocodile farm", where the crocodiles were literally brought closer to us, just great!

One of the best tours of my vacation! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He even took my photos as I was traveling alone. The experience felt more personal because I wasn’t cramped in a bus like other tours. The drive was respectful and kind- he was efficient that we got there before the big groups. The food was also great- they have some options so as pescatarian I was very happy. Thanks for such an amazing day!
