You must book your excursions with this company. Dan is awesome. We had a large group that did three excursions Jungle Buggy, Tulum, and Private Catamaran Boat. We had an awesome time at all three adventures. Jungle Buggy was so much fun. We went through the jungle on ATV's, stopped at a local Mayan village where we purchased food to give back to the locals. This was the best part for me. I love to help others and to see the smiles on the local's faces just melted my heart. We stopped at a cenote and took a plunge into the freshwater. We then went to Tulum and looked at the amazing view of the Mayan pyramids and the golf of Mexico. We were able to do some shopping and get some souvenirs. The next day we got on the Catamaran boat and when I tell you it was amazing, it was amazing. We snorkeled in the Golf, had drinks, music, and the boat crew was so awesome. I will be requesting them again, ask for Roberto (uncle Bob). Dan was an awesome host. He joined us on the boat and made sure everything went smoothly. We made a stop had a great lunch and went to the Ice Bar. It's cold but you will enjoy the experience. There is so much to say I can go on and on. Just go experience it yourself. I'm sure if you pick any of Dan's adventures you will have an amazing time as our group did. I will absolutely be using VIP again on our next vacation to Cancun.

We got to Caribbean often, and as a group of friends, wanted an easy, and fun day out from the resort. Given Covid season, we wanted something private. Since we’ve seen all the Mayan ruins already, and have done all the cenotes, we wanted something else! And here is where VIP Riviera Maya delivered big time! We rented a yacht through them, and spent the day enjoying the boat, and the beautiful shores of Cancun and Isla Mujeres. The pick up from the resort was on time, and a relatively quick ride to the marina. The owner of VIP Riviera Maya joined us for the day. He made sure that we were satisfied with the service received, and basically served as our tour guide handling the payments and all the behind the scenes stuff associated with trips. When we were deciding on what to do, he was very knowledgeable about different options, worked with our limitations, and at the end, arranged a very nice day out in the sea for us. We did all the planning back at home before our arrival, and all through the communication, he was easily reachable through the company’s email, and responded quickly with detailed answers. The actual trip was very fun, and we would, and probably will do it again in the future! The boat was nice, and spacious. We arrived at the marina a tad early, and witnessed it being cleaned and sanitized. They even let us take off half an hour earlier, so in a sense we got half hour bonus on the boat. All crew members wore face coverings the entire time too, and were very attentive to our needs serving us delicious drinks, and being very friendly! Included in the trip we had water and beer. We also requested some additional items which were picked up for us beforehand. We didn’t really have a specific schedule for the trip, and I think that that part alone made it special – no need to worry about specific times to keep going to other points of interest etc. This trip was all about the luxury of not having to worry about anything and not being on a schedule. We stopped at one side of the island for some time in the water, with a very picturesque rocks and shore line, and then continued to Playa Norte for some time to booze on the boat, sunbathe, and relax while people watching. We went to a fun spot for lunch. It is called Zuma Beach Club and is situated on Isla Mujeres. The spot is quite nice, the food is exquisite….but the service locks. For the review of the place, refer to a separate review. All in all, all eight of us were very satisfied with a very fun day on the yacht, and the Island. The service of VIP Riviera Maya was very nice, easy and worry free. We have been booking with them for three years now, but always just airport transfers. I strongly believe we have found our new spot for fun excursions.

The whale watching tour my wife and I took 7/29/2020 was amazing... very reasonably priced, transportation was on time, drivers were very professional, guide and captain were top notch. This was a bucket list trip and there were approximately 90 WHALE SHARKS and 5 Giant manta rays!!! Everyone on the tour left with great experience, great friends and great keepsakes in pictures!!! Highly recommended Dan and his crew for any transportation, tours, or private yachts!! Amazing guy, great prices and above all a great time!!! Book early, tours fill up fast!!

A huge thanks to Daniel Palka and VIP Riviera Maya for creating the most perfect excursion experience for me and my daughters! He set us up for a private (covid friendly!) excursion that included Manuel our amazing and knowledgeable guide, Chichen Itza, Cenote, and lunch. But beyond that, Manuel took us to a roadside family restaurant where my girls got to make tortillas in the kitchen and I got to learn how to really make and eat a taco and not look so American, lol, a look at Valladolid, roadside churros and a ride back home via the countryside to see more of the area! My kids love learning the history and culture and I try hard to give them that gift when we travel and this fit the bill in the midst of enjoying the relaxing all inclusive Ventus as well. It was so fun, so easy (I didn’t have to arrange a thing!) and a great price! A highlight of our trip! I would highly recommend working with Dan to create a unique experience!
