We took the same cruise as many of these other reviews here below, on may 5th. I think it's important to understand the nature of this event before reading my review. I understood that this was a "Booze Cruise", I expected that it would be...More

Firstly, I would recommend not to ever buy any kind of tour in the street, restaurant... We paid around 600/700 pesos/person basically for nothing. We were told to be in the harbour two hours before the boat would even leave, after getting up around 6am,...More

This activity was recommended by the hotel and I’m upset that I actually ended up going. Sure they said they’d have breakfast aboard but it wasn’t much. They only had to offer like 5-6 strips of fruit with a splash of yogurt and granola. We...More

Marietas islands are amazing, we saw a bunch of whales (in March) and even dolphins, and the place is beautiful, however, other companies looked better equipped when you got there other boats had more fun things.

The trip was $45 for the entire trip. It included the port and conservation fees. The boat and staff were timely and competent. The food wasn't amazing and is the only reason I didn't give full stars. Dramamine is a MUST!!! The ride out is...More

A professionally staffed adventure tour that took our family on an amazing tour to Yelapa. The horses and mules that took us up the mountain to the beautiful waterfall were very tame and well tended for. I recommend that you hire the professional photographers for...More

The photographer we hired was part of the tour and gave us a CD with 275 excellent photos. Maybe a representative from the tour company you patronized can help you out.
