Omar did a great job training me and Leo was very patient as I struggled to equalize on my descent. Once on the bottom we swam the reef close to isla mujeres.....absolutely stunning. We saw two turtles, two rays and two octupuses. Best experience in my short time scuba diving. Very professional. Also appreciated Javier as lead guide and Wilbur... More

Snorkeling at it's best. You drive through the lagoon and mangrove jungle in your own speed boat to the reef in the ocean. We saw sting rays, 21/2 foot grouper, squid and your normal angel and clown fish, etc. It was reasonably priced with our discount from Paradisus, but there is a $20 tax which if you only do one...

Terrible dive, we had no warning that this was a technical dive involving a cave dive [something I swore I would never do after potholing as a young man]. The equipment and setup was OK but there was nothing to see, one of our party became too stressed to dive and pulled out. The information implied that this was a... More

The first tour we did was the Tour around Cancun. It was a two hour boat ride around Cancun. We got a little soaked at one point. The guide, Ricardo, was pretty entertaining. But it was essentially just a boat ride. And after the other two excursions, we felt we could have done without that one. The second day we... More

We were looking for a basic low cost option for snorkeling. We chose the Paradise Snorkeling option with which you take a boat out to the reef, take a guided snorkel through the reef and then take another boat back to Aquaworld. We enjoyed the snorkeling part of the trip and the boat rides were fine. Before departing they try... More

For the money you pay, the reef they bring you to is not pretty. They reef was not that colorful, the fish were not plentiful, and the tour guide rushes you along and makes you snorkel together in a big group very close together. It cost over 100 dollars for 1 adult and 2 kids to go and we were... More

I recently went on a two-tank night dive in Cancun and a two-tank dive on their Cozumel tour. All dives were terrific! The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. As a solo diver they made me feel at ease. Leo was an awesome dive master! Definitely request him. If I had the opportunity I would certainly return!

Wonderful family activity while in Cancun!! Our kids loved it - we have never snorkeled before and it was perfect.... the jet skis were just enough for us first timers! The Aqua Twister was a lot of fun and all the guides were friendly and knowledgeable and truly seemed to enjoy their jobs!

The scuba was mediocre. Even the Underwater museum failed to wow for some reason. But it was really cheap for two 40 minute dives.
