The event was hilarious and fun! We had tacos, cervezas, a pit stop at a nighttime market, and front row seats to the luchadores. I really loved the fun atmosphere of this tour. The guide was awesome, and truly saved this tour from being ho-hum. I do not recommend being picked up by their shuttle if you are staying in Playa del Carmen. It took over two hours to get to Cancun, and a solid hour and a half to return. This is a fun night adventure if you are even remotely into Mexican wrestling!

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!

Excellent tour. Very well organized. Our guide, Gabriel was very interactive, informative, and did what he was there to do: guide! Worth every penny! However, the buffet lunch was mediocre, had limited options. But I did enjoy the warm corn tortillas though!

well organized, car was there with sign and had the same driver on return. great experience.

Very well organized tour by EKINOX TOURS with excellent guide Carlos Moo.
