My partner and I did this tour and it was the best part of our 2.5 week holiday in Mexico! We were offered an upgrade ($50USD) to go on a smaller catamaran with only 30 people instead of 100, it also included extra drinks and docked at a nicer area to explore on the island. It was well worth the extra $. The beach at Isla Mujeres was absolutely breathtaking and the Mexican buffet lunch was so delicious. The boat was fun and we loved snorkelling at two different points in the ocean on the way there. Cannot recommend this tour enough!

The tour we went one was amazing. Our guide’s name was Fernando and he was the best. He was very knowledgeable about all the cenotes we saw and really made the experience amazing. We went to the Gran Cenote, Cenote Dos Ojos, and Santa Cruz Cenote. All 3 were amazing but the third was the best and was like an underground cave walk with not too much swimming. I would highly recommend this tour. I would recommend bringing water shoes but it is definitely manageable without.

Highly recommended for a family activity. Very professional guides. The boat ride is just amazing especially as it goes into the narrow water path. The snorkeling part was good but I had higher expectations as to the different types of fishes.

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

Amazing tour guides and both the underground Cenote and the K’aan Laguna were incredible! Speechless!
