Very tranquil and serene view of Cancún and the ocean. The staff were very friendly. Only one small snag with the experience was they don’t keep track of how long you’ve been waiting and we wound up having to wait longer to ride and get back to shore than we should have. That

My husband is paralyzed and can't walk or stand. Here in the US and other countries no one will allow him to parasail. Aquaworld has the skyrider which is a bench seat vs a harness and they didn't hesitate to allow my husband to participate in this activity. They even lifted

Worst experience ever as a traveler. My wife and I fell into the sea on their motorboat for the activity "skyrider" and my wife lost her phone and eyeglasses. We were never told about the potential danger for this activity (i.e., very very bumpy motorboat ride) by the moment we

Dear Xiaowei, We regret not having made a good impression on you, but there's no need to generalize and avoid a whole country from one bad experience. I have investigated your situation and we're very sorry for the experience you had. Since you fell off the jetski on the way to the Skyrider boat, you were refunded at that moment. It should be noted that before boarding, you were advised to hold on tight since jet skis don't have seat belts and you have explained the risks of carrying your belongings, but you still decided to take them. There are also various regulations signs and warnings at different points, which we will work to make more noticeable in order to prevent this from happening again, after all, this is water activity.

I have to say I’m usually skeptical of places selling tours and related packages. Mostly we choose to search around for independent operators for each attraction. Well no need here, what a value with amazing results. First the salesperson Edgar, low pressure with phenomenal
