A great day with a great guide. Everything is well planned and conducted at the pace of the slowest member of the group.

Fantastic experience! I've never seen anything like it. You can't bring in camera but they do have a photographer and you can purchase photos for $99 which were worth it. The wetsuit is optional but I definitively recommend wearing it because the water is cold. We drove ourself which I would recommend or getting there by taxi because it was cheaper than paying for their transportation. They also provide water shoes but I recommend bringing your own if you have them. Also they don't allow any jewelry so leave that at home.

Our group of 9 was perfect! I’m so sorry I don’t remember our guide’s name but he spoke French, Spanish and English. The tour was beautiful! The ride from Cancun was long and the bus host Jesus was super annoying and hard to understand. The driver was amazing and got us where we needed to safely which can be challenging! The lunch was yummy authentic Mexican. The pictures were expensive at $100 but worth it to us. Do not leave your stuff on the bus as Jesus suggests. There are lockers that have key locks so your money is secure.
