We experienced the Mayan Snorkeling Adventure twice during our one week stay! It was so amazing on July 11th, we went again on July 15th. Our driver and guide, Jose "Joe" Antonio Aranda, was so great, we asked for him specifically for our 2nd tour!! My daughter and her husband honeymooned in Cancun and July 11th would have been their... More

When arriving at the harbor, we were greeted by friendly, energetic staff who quickly took us onboard the catamaran after a short walk. We sailed to the snorkeling reef enjoying the sun and drinks served by the crew. After seeing beautiful coral, fish, and a couple of sting rays in the Caribbean, we boarded for our second stop at an... More

Snorkeling Adventure was awesome. The plant life and fish were beautiful. The guides really know what they are doing, and would point different things on the trip that most people would probably miss. The water is warm and clear. Everyone was very friendly. Lunch was also very good. I would definitely go back. Bring extra cash. There is a five... More

This is a great trip for beginner snorkelers and people who are not very strong swimmers and even people who do not know how to swim. Everyone is required to wear a life vest at all time. I enjoyed my 45 minute trip from Playa del Carmen. The highway and stopping at all the various hotels to pick up other... More

2 dives at the same spot, which had poor snorkeling with few fish or coral. Very large group so you were right on top of everyone and if you tried getting away so you weren't getting kicked in the face, they would coral you back into the herd. The lunch, which they described in advance as "the best you will... More

Overall disappointed as we were not told about the $5 tax/admin fee and where also told we would visit 3 reefs but only visited 1 reef 3 times and each trip shorter than the previous. They also tried to sell us 'reef friendly' sunscreen.

Today was one of the most wonderful days of our lives! All three activities were beyond beautiful and our guide, Nacho, was one of a kind; funny, knowledgable and most importantly respectful to mother nature. We would definitely recommend this trip to family and friends and would love to be back one day! Thank you!!!
