My family and I just returned from a week's stay in Puerto Aventuras and during our stay, we traveled with a 6-7 person group to Akumal for snorkeling. I'm pretty much a non-swimmer in that I paddle about a little while and then have to stand up so I don't start hyperventilating (lousy mental childhood thing where some idiot fellow... More

The Apple rep at our hotel wasn't very knowledgeable about this particular tour, so I had a very different expectation going in, but it was still great! We went to the cenote first, and I was not prepared for the long drive through the jungle on very bumpy terrain. I tend to get car sick, so if you have those... More

We booked this tour through Apple Vacation at our resort. Since we had 12 people from the same family, we had a private tour with our own van. The transportation was already in front of the resort when we showed up. We were met by Tatiana in front of the lobby. She was very efficient in getting us to sign... More

This was excellent! We went in May 2013 with this company called Blue Caribe EcoTours doing their Underwater World tour with a guide called Pamela. Firstly she was extremely passionate about everywhere we visited and was so keen on protecting the ecology (is that a real word??) and the welfare of both the guests and the animals. She knew everything... More

The only reason I can't give them a rating of "excellent" is because they didn't pick us up on our originally scheduled tour date due to van problems (which we learned of an hour after we should have been picked-up when reporting the problem to our Apple rep in the resort.) Our Apple rep, by the way, assured us that... More

Our first experience snorkeling anywhere was in Akumal Bay and we lucked into having Marie as a guide! Her love of the area and joy are evident as is her knowledge of the wildlife in the area. We stuck close to her so we wouldn't miss anything and we didn't!!! I actually came face to face with a barracuda!!! We... More

One of the best excursions I've ever done on a holiday. The First Choice guide book does not do sell it well enough. Marie the tour guide is absolutely brilliant, her local knowledge is spot on and she knows exactly what to look for when snorkelling. One tip would be to stick close to the guide when snorkelling. We managed... More

Swimming with the turtles at Akumal beach is a magical experience. The beach is absolutely beautiful, you can get really close to the turtles, watch them eat and swim. It's amazing to watch them come up for air! There's also coral and fish. Our guide, Marie, was very knowledgeable about the different kinds of fish and would point them out... More
