If it weren't for the price of photos, I'd have given it 5 stars. I swam with the whale sharks and got all the pictures from that for $35. Here the pictures were $90 and just one was $25. They don't let you bring go pros or anything in so if you want to remember it with pictures, then you... More

Great day out, Hugo our guide was amazing. My mum couldn't manage walking in the caves so she floated on her back and Hugo pulled her round. Very, very informative and very well organised.

Wow is all I can say for this excursion. We wanted to try this excursion because of the reviews it has received and I can say it's definitely a 5 star. After the tour, they fed us a nice Mexican lunch which was delicious. I would highly recommend this to anyone

Our guide was Nunes. His passion for the preservation of this amazing place and its heritage was evident in our tour. We were on the Happy trail. It is a physical trek, but not difficult. (I am 51 and over weight and managed it easily.) Nunes took time to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable. The pictures from inside... More
