This is the second straight year we have gone on this trip, it was hard to believe but they did such an awesome job again. We had a great time last year and it was even better this year. The crew was absolutely amazing.

The dock is in Cancun. It looks like Akomel is about 1.5 hours from Cancun. So you would have a pretty long taxi ride. Once you get to the dock, it's an all-day excursion. It costs about $110 per person. So worth it... More
