We were told this was a quiet and perfect tour. Snorkeling and exploring an island that is only inhabited by wildlife. What we got was a lot of alcohol and roudiness. Crew encouraging too much drinking (including) themselves. We were told it was bi-Lingual. It...More

The place is so beautiful. We hardly saw something on the snorkeling. The island has NO fresh water. On the way back they force you to go to Isla Mujeres for 2 hours, when everybody is tired, with sand and just want to get to...More

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
