My wife and I went scuba diving with divemaster Aline Franco at Marina La Bonita. It was amazing. The equipment, service and dives were excellent! The marina is located inside the luxurious Zoëtry hotel. The dive sites are just a few minutes away, I guess 30 minutes tops. You'll see healthy reefs with good visibility.

We chartered a boat called the Wahoo express during our stay at The Zoetry and had an amazing day with family and friends. We went with two other couple and their kids so we had a total of 4 kids ages 4 and under. The kids had a blast on the boat and I felt like everyone was safe which... More

My husband and I booked a snorkel trip and a ½ day catamaran sail with Marina La Bonita while staying at the Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita. Snorkel trip was fun…the reef is right off the beach from this resort. Eileen the guide was very knowledgeable about the reef and what we would see while snorkeling. We saw a lot... More

While the boat was nice and the staff was friendly, I was sort of turned off by the fishing tactics. We didnt troll very long and only used one kind of bait. It would have been nice to use some ribbon fish, squid, or something other than mullet. Also, when they decided to bottom fish they were using cut bait.... More

Dear Chris, We are sorry to hear that our fishing tactics did not meet your expectations. When trolling we use a variety of teasers along with ballyhoo rigged with a variety of plastic lures and skirts (we do not use mullet). This is the standard trolling tactic for this area, and works well, however there are times when the fish... More

Booked the La Bonita for a private 4 hour charter for 9 adults and 2 kids (12 & 9). We had the BEST time! Maybe a little too much fun?! :-) Genaro was amazing at answering all questions and meeting our needs. The boat is gorgeous. The kids were a little nervous at first being it was their first time...

Second time around...Marina La Bonita hit it out of the park again. We first set sail on La Bonita in 2012 for a private cruise. This time (February 2015), we booked for the Reef Snorkel & Sail with Lunch experience. Genaro was extremely professional and helpful getting us set up for the experience via email and a phone call prior... More

We had a private charter for 20. The snorkelling, the food, the drinks and the crew were great but the reason I can't give this a higher than poor rating is I specifically requested that we wanted to sail. We arrived to be told that there was a problem with the mast stays and 'didn't we mention that?'. They suggested... More

We charted the catamaran with a total of 16 - three families with 10 kids ages 10 - 23. The boat was beautiful and the staff very attentive.

We booked a private catamaran charter directly through Marina De La Bonita. The weather turned out perfectly and we could not be happier with our experience. We had 30 people for a 4 hour cruise with a box lunch and drink menu #1. The crew of La Bonita was excellent and very accommodating. We went snorkeling in the Puerto Morelos... More
