I would like to think our experience was a one off but after spending £300 for a Whale Shark trip it was soo poor that I even felt the need to complain to Thomson. Our guide Simona knew nothing about the animals. Its well know they grow to the size of a bus, they filter feed, and the reason they... More

We booked the 1/2 day excursion through amstar and realized that we probably could've taken a taxi and gone ourselves. But our guide, Vidyia was so nice and informative. What we didn't really enjoy was that we went to a mayan village prior to the beach where she gave us a tour on how they live and there was a... More

We booked the Turtle Tour through the Amstar rep at our hotel. There were 2 options, one which included a swim in a cenote and the turtle snorkelling and the other which included a zip wire into the ocean, we decided to choose the first option. We paid 99 USD each for the trip. Our tour guide Vidya arrived on... More

Just got back from a fantastic morning excursion. OMG what a morning. Our guide Ana was fantastic, after getting everyone fitted up with life vest, fins & snorkel, she took us out into the bay. Within minutes she found a huge sea turtle, sting ray and more fish that you could image. The second part of the trip we went... More

Went on this excursion via the Thomson rep from the Riu Lupita last Friday, 29th May 2015, and was blown away. I was first pick up and it was on time. The guide, Maricela (spell?), was excellent and full of knowledge. She conducted our day in English and Italian. She engaged everyone and made everyone feel like a group instead... More

My wife and I went on a day trip with Blue Caribe on May 29th. We were picked up from our resort promptly. Our guide Francesca made sure we had everything we needed and answered all of our questions. Our tour group consisted of my wife and I, two Italian couples, and a British couple. The guide spoke to all... More

We had a great 1/2 day excursion with and Excellent Guide, Vidyia. We started the day by going to two cenotes, one we were able to walk through, like a big open cave then the other we went for a swim, the water was clear and cool. I was a littel nervous of the deep dark cave but it was... More

We went on a day trip to the cenote and then to Akumal to snorkel with the sea turtles. We first went to the cenote and snorkeled in the dark where we saw stalagmites. Then we walked through an open cenote. Then we took the drive to Akumal where we got our gear and then snorkeled in the beautiful crystal... More

Just got back from our little day trip. Lili was our tour guide and she was awesome. Very funny but full of lots of information! Enjoyed our day out , got a little sea sick by the end of the day snorkling with the turtles. But overall it was an awesome day and scored some great pictures.
