    NOT A YACHT but we still enjoyed it quite a bit. This was not what we expected at all, but, we liked it. We are used to snorkeling trips on yachts with lunch and drinks served, where music is played, and towels are provided. This is not that kind of snorkeling tour BUT it is still really AMAZING!!
    Andreas our tour guide was FANTASTIC! He was so hospitable and greeted us immediately at the bus stop. He informed us that if we wanted any drinks or food that we could buy some at the OXXO store where the bus was picking us up soon. We purchased some drinks and snacks. The bus was on time and it was an scenic bus ride. We liked seeing the town and the locals, as we made stops and drove to our beach destination. When we arrived about 20 minutes later we walked to the beach and left our belongings and shoes behind the counter. It was all safe and guarded by an employee, and we didn't feel weird about leaving our bags. The boat was small, not a yacht with bathrooms or a deck. We got in and Andreas made sure everyone was safe and secure. He was so fun and a wonderful tour guide! He told us interesting and humorous facts about the rock formations and the wildlife. We really enjoyed him as a guide. He made sure to point out all of the sights. When we anchored and entered the water to snorkel they guides made sure again, we were safe in our life jackets and helped us into the water. Once we were all in the water the fish show began. We saw a lot of beautiful fish. It was BREATH TAKING to swim through the arc and see the cave. My family and I loved swimming in the ocean and Andreas guided us as we swam through the arc. He always made sure we were safe and I appreciated his attention to safety. After the snorkeling we got back in the boat and proceeded back to shore. We learned so much about the area and Andreas was a 5 star guide!!
    There was an outdoor shower to rinse off the sea water and you could stay and enjoy the beach and bar/restaurants. We had to get back for dinner reservations so Andreas walked us back to the bus stop and made sure we got on and told us when to get off at our stop. Andreas really did a magnificent job and we all enjoyed his knowledge and humor.
    Again, this experience is not what we were used to, but we really did have a wonderful time and enjoyed it. Beautiful to see this and a fun time. Thank you!!

    My wife and I had a great time. I was worried about being herded around and rushed but that wasn't the case. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The boat staff made sure everyone had drinks and were having a good time. The boat entertainment was a nice way to break up the 45 minute ride. Food was a typical buffet, not high but adequate. The show was amazing. If your looking for Cirque du Soleil, this not comparable. It's very good and entertaining but you can't compare the 2 in my mind. The amphitheatre was very warm with no breeze. Fans would be nice. That's the only bad thing I can say. Otherwise great experience

    What an incredible excursion! The office in Las Glorias was easy to find and check-in was smooth. You take an open bus to the Canopy River site (~30min) and get all checked in by the staff. The RZR/ATV Jorullo Bridge tour was absolutely incredible! We brought towels/dry clean clothes and left them in the lockers and would highly recommend doing so: you will be very dusty and wet! There are a few showers there to rinse off but no soap. There is a pitstop by a waterfall/river that we really enjoyed and also used to rinse off but you do get dusty again as soon as you get back on the trail. Be aware that this is accessible by a staircase that may be challenging for those who are older/less mobile!!! We would have liked a little more time at the bar to take in the views, but overall the tour was excellent. The restaurant was decent with fast service and fair prices and the pool had a spectacular view. We really enjoyed the photographers capturing pictures and ended up purchasing our digital pictures. Would highly recommend this excursion!!! Worth every penny!

    Lora and Borrega were great! Tons of fun and excitement along the way! We felt very safe. It was definitely 6+ hours. Bring a change of clothes. Please take care of the new colt with bad legs.

    Great staff. Great service. Great experience. If you are in the area, you have to book it! We saw whales, dolphins, the arches, and a crocodile all in one trip!

    First off, I want to say that ocean conditions can't be controlled by any tour guides and it is silly that the operator is being blamed for it in some of the recent reviews. The swim to the Marietas Islands was fine for me since I regularly engage in some moderate exercise and have some experience with ocean swimming as well as for fun in a pool. The tide was fairly forgiving and during our trip we didn't have to worry too much about bumping our heads on top of the cave. However, my partner struggled a bit with less swim experience and despite that, our tour guide Erik and captain Emirio took amazing care of him when he got back on the boat when he wasn't feeling well. Yes, there were jellyfish on the way to the cave at the time we went, but it really didn't take away from our experience at all. On top of that, Erik kept on encouraging us and our adventures weren't ended by jellyfish stings because they had vinegar spray on board which essentially denaturalizes the toxins and all our stings went down significantly after about 10 minutes of spraying on the mixture. Erik's unwavering positive attitude really got us through it all with everyone still smiling in our group.

    A great bonus for our group was that we saw so many dolphins on the way to the Marietas Islands, moms teaching their babies how to fish and play - it was a truly breathtaking moment right before we got to the hidden islands and it was the perfect way to get our adventures started.

    There is so much wildlife and beautiful spectacular moments to experience on this tour so don't miss out!

    Excellent trip overall! Well worth the intermediate hiking. After the first uphill hiking, the rest was easier and was shorter distance from one beach to the next. Our tour guide, Roco, was excellent and provided great tour guidance. Highly recommend this activity.

    The entire experience was great. The food, drink, and staff especially. The views of the Pacific Ocean, The Arches, and the coastline were breathtaking. Even though we were outside of prime whale viewing season, we got to see one breeching several times. It's an experience our family will always remember!

    Best zip lining experience ever! All the staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Beautiful views! Zipping over the River was really cool, and getting to go in the river after was great too! Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs though!

    This was such a great experience! Our tour guides were Jose and Johan and they were the best! They made the experience really memorable. This excursion is amazing value for your money. The 9 zip lines were fun and really great for beginners. The walks up to the different lines weren't bad either.
