An incredible and unforgettable experience. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience something different and special. Our guide Gonzalo was very kind and took us to the best corners. We started by visiting the reef and saw different types of fish. And after that visit the adventure began… we began to interact with large manta rays and then two turtles visited us. It was incredible!! We still continue with the emotion of the moment. The captain and deckhand were very helpful and made the experience a dream. After this great experience, we visited three cenotes and swam in two of them, always accompanied by Gonzalo, who took some incredible photos of us. The cenotes were very different: in one of them the bottom was a large cave that was impressive. The open had a beautiful marine fauna and flora. During the trip the driver was also very helpful: he offered us drinks and snacks and left us a charger for our camera. They were also very punctual. 100% recommended!!

Super nice tour, keeps what it promises, especially the price-performance ratio is clearly given here for 20 €, you can't get cheaper from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. The jewelry store, as well as the tequila store, work together with the transport company, hence the low price. But you don't feel like you have to buy anything. Prices in both stores are very moderate, not overpriced - we bought both silver jewelry and a few bottles of tequila.

It was a great tour! Very nice and competent guide! The driver drove very well and conscientiously! We saw several turtles and even manta rays! Visiting the cenotes was super cool! Crystal clear water and lots of colorful fish!! I can highly recommend the tour!!!

Wonderful crew, boat not overcrowded like other tours, and food is tasty! Highly recommend! Family and kid friendly too!

great experience and you also get a lot of pictures
