        Meh.
        We got a small van on the way to the hotel which was much smaller than advertised. The ride back to the airport the rides were 30 minutes late for pick up and they sent 2 small cars instead of the van. Drivers were friendly on the ride to the airport. Driver on the way to the hotel couldn't of cared less about us.

        Unique experience
        Hour and a half drive from Huatulco to small, non commercial, turtle facility. Short explanation of turtle life, then taken to beach and given 5 baby turtles to release at nightfall. 200 pesos donation. Lovely experience.

        Releasing Baby Turtles is Fun!
        This was a neat experience. Eduardo picked up our group of 6 (English speakers) and two Spanish speaking families. 11 total. He gave us some information on the region, in both languages, as we drove the 90 minutes to the sanctuary. Then we had a quick intro, and time for questions, at the centre and paid our 200 pesos fee before being driven to the beach. We each got 5 baby turtles, from Rosita, to name and release. Eduardo had a special red light that didn’t hurt the turtles eyes and he took pictures for us. It was fun to watch our turtles make their way to the sea. We had to coax Floyd as he wanted to stay with us but we finally got him into the ocean with his brothers and sisters. We thought the centre missed an opportunity as they only had six t-shirts for sale. I’m sure they could have sold a lot of turtle merchandise if they had it in stock. We returned to the centre and then we drove the 90 minutes back in the dark.

        Highlight of our trip
        Best tour I have ever done. The waterfalls exceeded expectations, lots of time to swim there. Our guide, Alex, was excellent, gave us lots of local information on the drive up, which kept it interesting. He was really good with our 2 children (6 & 10). Food at the restaurant after was also excellent. I would highly recommend going with a guide as opposed to on your own, as we would not have known all the routes up and down the falls. 10/10 trip.

        A great way to try different tacos and feel like a local.
        We had a very nice evening out, being taken to 3 different taco spots. Felt like a local! It was fun. Our guide spoke very good English so he was able to answer all our questions about the Huatulco area and the cute town of La Crucecita. I found it a little expensive, but would still recommend the tour.

        Perfect day
        The waterfalls were a beautiful place to visit. The water was clean and refreshing. Our guide, Eduardo, was excellent. He helped everyone to walk and climb through several waterfall areas with patience and kindness. The drive was long, and the last part very bumpy, but Eduardo told us many interesting facts about the area, and was very entertaining. Next we had a family style lunch of delicious Mexican dishes at a restaurant near the falls. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it.

        .Couldn,t find the house, unfortunate to have not recorded the address
        Unfortunately, the driver could not find the house. I had sent the address twice but all he had was the title. Casa de las palmas. I guess he assumed it was the Las Palmas Hotel and he knew where it was. They drove around looking for almost an hour. I do not know what happened to all of the information that I sent that included the street and house number. Otherwise the driver was great, very safe

        Unsafe, Unsanitary Snorkeling
        What was supposed to be a fun afternoon learning how to snorkel in clear water in Mexico was anything but. The seas were rough so we stayed within sight of town. No safety talk, no instructions on how to use equipment. (Was it sanitized? I think not.) We went to a swimming cove where the swells were 3 feet high , told to jump into water from boat and swim to roped off swim boundary. My husband was unable to figure out how to use equipment, and mask was too small for him. I started to panic and could not breath. We swam back to boat. My husband cut his hands and leg on the ladder. After a while the rest of passengers returned and we sailed to a calm beach. By that time I was seasick. My husband and I swam to the beach and spent our time there as did a couple other participants. I heard comments from experienced snorkelers that this had been a bad experience. Our backpacks and contents were soaked as water covered the floor and benches. Fortunately, we did not take our phones. I suggested to Princess Cruises that this tour operator does not meet its standards. I hope they quit using it. I do not recommend this tour company.

        Great experience
        We had a great time releasing the sea turtles. Our guide Fermin is very professional, and speaks fluent English as he was born in the US. Fermin is so knowledgeable, and explained literally everything about the sea turtles on our way to the sanctuary. The bonus is the beautiful beach, and we would absolutely do it again next time when we are in Huatulco.

        Beautiful snorkel trip
        Very nice guide, we went to a Beach nearby and snorkled for maybe 1,5 hours. We saw a lot of different fish in so many beautiful colors, absolutely amazing. The guide was leading the way but we had good time to stop and watch. After there was time for lunch at a restaurant at the Beach.

        Excellent from start to finish
        Our guide, Forhime ( I’m not sure that I spelled his name correctly), made a huge difference in our day. He was so kind and patient, spoke English and Spanish. Booking the trip was easy, the pick-up arranged went smoothly. Nothing bad to say, and there were 9 of us, ages 12-46. The reef and fish were amazing.

      The guide, Carlos, was good. He had knowledge and a genuine concern for the environment. The actual sites/tours were interesting and what we expected, which was good. What was not good was having to pay an additional 200 pesos per person per site, as the description of the tour states that admissions are included. I understand that these sites are trying to protect and preserve wild life, which costs. But after paying almost $250 CAD for 3 persons, this added another $100 to the trip. The description on TripAdvisor needs to be updated to include this information.
