“Fun day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

We traveled to Mexico for a wedding. We decided to take a zip line excursion. This was the perfect one! It was a lot for your dollar. Lots of fun and beautiful scenery!

“Great EXPERIENCE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

WOW! This was a wonderful excursion. So much fun packed into one place. We started out the day doing a wonderful zip line experience. The Zips were super fast and fun! Also no hiking required which was a plus for my boyfriend who hurt his foot. The staff who works the zip lines were also so great. Very funny and friendly.

Next we went snorkeling a Cenote. This was a wonderful different experience. We got some good pictures on account of a digital underwater camera which I highly recommend because it had a flash. Our tour guide took some great pics for us.

Then we went onto the Cave. It was very cool. Just a little too long and we were starving at this point so we were all ready to eat. We learned a lot of cool stuff but it could have been streamlined a bit.

Last we had some lunch, it was included in the trip. Nothing fancy but pretty decent food.

We really had a great time here. There were also really cute animals especially tons of Monkey's! We got to feed the friendly one Bananas!

*Note this was also quite far from Cancun. The transportation was a bit more streamlined and not as crazy as other trips.

“Walking in an amazing cave, and snorkling in an underground river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This was one of my best experiences in Mexico. We spent around 45 minutes walking in a 100% natural cave; the cave was almost 100 million year old. After that, we went to an area very close and we swam in a fresh underground river, and snorkeling too
