Simone and her staff provided cheerful, attentive service to our family of 6, with four young adults. They provided an intro scuba course for 4, and all 6 of us went on their excursion to swim with whale sharks (incredible!) , ATV & zip-lining in the jungle and parasailing.

For the 2 hour scuba we boated south, stopped to pick up additional people at the sister Sandos Playacar Resort, and then continued... More

I was able to dive again after not diving for over 30 years. The guys at Scuba Libre were great, helpful and very knowledgeable. I took the Scuba Review course and made two shallow reef dives. It was even better than I remembered. I can't say enough about my instructor John and our photographer Marianna. They were both top notch.... More

We went on the Mystic Adventure excursion which included 2 zip line courses, ATV driving and snorkeling/swimming in two cenotes and a homemade (delicious) lunch. This excursion was everything we were looking for! Jorge Matias helped us book at the towel check in at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort and was AWESOME!! He answered all our questions and even checked in... More
