Thanks Lisa, it was good to have you at Aquaworld and I'm gad you enjoyed the dive and the underwater museum. The museum is an amazing eco-project which now consists of over 470 statues! Hopefully you can come back and visit us again soon and try out some other dives. Kind regards More

My husband and I went to AquaWorld to go scuba diving for the first time while on our honeymoon. We had the best time! First we got private lessons at our hotel, Moon Palace Resort, from Abraham, who was a fantastic instructor from AquaWorld! We then went to their storefront to catch a boat which took us out between Cancun... More

This excursion was not worth the price. You have to sit slumped over in the submarine in order to see out the windows. This trip is geared toward children under 5. Very overpriced for the 15-20 minute ride and you see very few fish.

Hi, thank you for letting us know your opinion, we do appreciate it. Yes this tour is great for kids and generally there is a lot of sealife in the area. Of course that is the course of nature, nothing stays in the same place and it's constantly changing. I would recommend checking out pictures of the activities prior to... More

I was staying across the street at the Paradisus so we walked over to use the wave runners for 30 minutes for $65 USD. We booked a day in advance but with the wave runners I don't even think it's needed. The only downside was we were told to be there at 8:30am for a 9am reservation. Well we ended... More

Hi, thank you for your review. Certainly it depends on the season as to whether you need to book in advance. It is recommendable especially in high season as you never know when we have larger parties or busy days. Bookings can be made online via our website too. I will make note of the arrival time, 30 minutes is... More

We have a mixture of children from a toddler to teen so we were looking for something we could do together. This seemed to fit the bill. If you get motion sick this is definitely not for you. First you get on a boat that brings you to the glass bottom boat. They tie the boats together so you can... More

Hi, Thank you for your review, I see there were some mixed feelings so I have noted down your comments and we will check on the duration of the sub ride. The rule of the thumb is thirty minutes but if some passengers are not feeling well we offer them the opportunity to go up to the top deck so... More

I highly recommend doing at least one day trip to Cozumel even if you are staying in Cancun. It's out of this world! The staff at Aquaworld is very helpful in facilitating this daytrip and dive.

Tons of fun activities, but make sure you call them and ask for combo deals. We overpaid for a couple activities. Most of the activities only take about 30 minutes to do. I enjoyed the speed boats, sail boat, paddle boats, and paragliding in that order.

I recently did the Aquaworld Jungle Tour in which we drove a speedboat to a distant snorkeling site and have to say that I was very disappointed. We had booked the excursion through the Omni Hotel and Resort and also paid for a 2nd excursion as part of a package deal. I went with my 9 year old daughter and... More

We had "Super Pedro" as our guide for this fun tour! Lasted about 2.5 hours. My husband enjoyed driving the speed boat and the snorkeling was fun - just a bit crowded. We really appreciated the bottled water that "Super Pedro" gave us upon leaving the water! I would recommend this tour!
