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!

Excellent activity, I really liked that it is not necessary to leave the city to the intense traffic to be able to have a day full of history, culture, fun, landscapes and return to the hotel on time for lunch. We started the day with an intense story about the Mayan culture, we visited 2 places that are a hidden gem in the Cancun area, we tasted a delicious snack and we ended with free time on one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. 10/10

If you are in Cozumel, you must take this tour. The guys are awesome! Our excursion lasted 5 hours, of which at least 2 hours were spent snorkelling in the sea. We saw various species of fish, starfish and in the end they took us to a "shoal" to have an aperitif (first quality cocktails) but the most beautiful thing is that while you were drinking your cocktail, whole families of manta rays. A great experience!

very easy to find the group, nice atmosphere on the boat with loads of music and smiles, good experience in the sea snorkeling and yes we saw a turtel

Beautiful location, servers were FANTASTIC, food was DELICIOUS! Going back in May!
