Great experience ! Bioluminescence + stars is an incredible combo Felt very safe on the water the whole trip Unfortunately there has been a slight problem with the pickup, they never came to our hotel (after saying they would via WhatsApp) and we had to walk there on our own. Fortunately the start was close to our hotel but by waiting 15 min for them we might have missed the tour

Good for seeing a bunch of stuff in a small amount of time, but you sacrifice enjoying the sights as much as you want to when you finally make it there. Maybe cut out Valladolid since we only had 20 minutes there and give it to Coba since we basically had to run/walk just to see the main pyramid and go straight back to the bus to make it back in time. They take you to a souvenir place right before lunch, which is understandable because that’s how these sort of tours generate more money (there’s a reason the tour itself is so cheap), but you only need like 20 minutes and maybe another 20 to eat your buffet line style lunch. It seemed like we were there for an excessive amount of time l, waiting to leave and spending less than great amounts of time at the attractions themselves.

Great experience of visiting coba, Mayan community and chichen itza. Cenotes by far the best bit. Try the caramel nut tequila there. The extra for taxes, drinks, life vests, lockers etc make it another £40 each so please account for this. It’s a long day and would be better if was at chichen itza was first thing to avoid crowds and weather at hottest part of the day, but all in all great trip see lots. P.s pay for the trike taxi at Coba very well worth it. Mina and Marco our guides were lovely today! Thank you!
