We booked this excursion to go parasailing. Got there to find out, no snacks or drinks served, and no parasailing because not enough wind. It was suppose to start at 2 and at 2:15 we asked what was the hold up and they said we were waiting for 2 more buses to show up, there was already 12 of us there and only suppose to be 20 total. Then we found out it was going to be 30 of us total. It was awful and we didn’t even go. As soon as we stepped on the beach we were getting harassed by the locals and wouldn’t get left alone. We had to wait 30 more minutes waiting for the next bus to come and take us back. We left at 2:45 when the second bus showed up and meanwhile it was still suppose to start at 2 and we then would’ve had to wait for another bus. Don’t book any excursions through this company, terrible and they change the plans and don’t tell you.

I would give this a zero if I could. Very late to pick up, in fact I had to get in touch with them. Was told the weather was too bad to parasail so we would get free pics instead. Got on the boat only to find out they are not providing free adult beverages. The other group was told and stopped to purchase before they came aboard. We did Hooka Dive which was fine. We did not get to parasail, snorkel or have unlimited drinks. So we paid lots of money to ride around for only a couple hours on a boat. We did get pictures but not many ( one of the cameramen was too busy doing a photo shoot with one woman on board). Please do not book this trip! You would be better off booking these activities individually to get your monies worth

We booked through Costco and until this excursion had run into almost no issues. Note that you have to contact them through WhatsApp to set up when they will get you. We did set this up for Friday afternoon. We then waited over an hour before contacting the company who is very slow with WhatsApp anyway. They "mixed up" the pickup somehow and then said our photos would be free on the trip. This wasted some of our time we could have used to do other things around the resort than sit wondering what's going on. They then rescheduled for Monday. Monday comes and again we are waiting... waiting. We finally call because we did not want to waste more of our time on this to say we want a refund. They basically said go through Expedia and hung up. I planned to simply do a chargeback anyway at this point. As we are walking away the driver finds us, no apology and we decide we might as well just go cant be that bad. NOPE, find out the driver was super late for others as well and other folks were no shows. Then slowly and lazily makes the way to the dock after we are already short on time to start this. The boat was a decent size catamaran but there were far too many people on board. They had clearly rescheduled all the people from Friday to this boat. Like the other catamaran trip we had done they make you wait until after snorkeling to drink which isn't a big deal, we've been allowed in other countries to do this. We get to the snorkel spot which is actually quite close to where you board the ship. The guide then just throws out food occasionally while you swim around, doesn't really say or try to point out anything as other trips have done. But otherwise it is a decent snorkel. Then we move again not far to a shallow area of water and can drink and walk and chat. This is where the rum runs out, which I know most people were drinking the terrible presidente beer anyway but it was at most 4, maybe 5 bottles of rum they had on this boat for nearly 50 people crammed in. Honestly that's pathetic for an all inclusive trip. So after what felt like 10mins they tell us to get back on and we sail the short distance back to where we boarded. The cameraman we then had to wait for off the boat who clearly wasn't going to try and contact us about the probably 5 photos he took on the boat. He DID know though that ours were free. However, he then straight up says "where's my tip?" We said we had already given it on the boat when they walked around with the box. He says he doesn't get any of that.... BS. But also tough s*** since you were gonna walk away and not give us anything anyway. As of typing this I am not sure if we have our photos just yet, but he was very hesitant to pull out his tablet for us to put in our information. Finally its back on the van with the same driver and home, but now with more people crammed in for some reason. I cant stress enough that there are other catamaran companies that are FAR better. We did a different one prior to this and had a much better time. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. The cheap price is clearly reflective of how its gonna be. I will be contacting Costco to tell them to remove this company from their travel section.
