“Best family trip ever.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We are a family if four, two boys aged 16 and 17. We did the ATV tour. This trip has all the excitement and adrenaline you can handle. The staff are wonderful and put us all at ease with their straight forward, humorous and professional approach. I was not looking forward to the zip lines but now I wonder what all the fuss was about. Two of us even went upside down. After the zip lines we went on a 30 min guided ATV tour all driving our own vehicles. The boys LOVED this. After that we had 30 mins to cool off in the cenote. As we were all now expert zip liners we had no problem throwing ourselves off the platform into the inviting waters below. The lunch was more like dinner and you can go back for second helpings if you want to. This was truly great value for money.

“Excellent experience, very well run organization!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Just returned from a trip to Riviera Maya, Mx where 3 in our family did the Extreme Canopy Adventure. Came away VERY impressed with how well run this organization was...cannot express this enough. Extreme attention to every detail went into this place from the design of the facility, bathrooms, souvenirs, food, transportation to quality of employees and service. They were very on top of everything it was a smooth oiled machine. LOVED "Jungle Boy" the head guide during our trip....he is adorable and so upbeat and funny (he deserves a raise/bonus). All the guides were well trained though, felt very safe at all times from the ziplining, to the transport and ceynote experience. Couldn't believe how great the lunch was, too....I only have one complaint...the photo package prices...crazy. Since you conveniently aren't allowed to take a camera on the ziplining your only option for photos is to purchase...we just couldn't swallow the prices so we didn't purchase (did a dolphin experience the day before). Wish they could have offered a single photo price but they don't print photos there, only offered a photo disc price. Really can't emphasize enough though what a well run place this was, so fun and upbeat, very positive all around experience!!

“just go”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

This was a top notch operation! We ziplined, drove ATVs and jumped into and swam in a cenote. It was fabulous. The trip included transportation and lunch as well. The food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. Facilities are the right mix of rustic and eco friendly and obviously modern and safe. The guide team is friendly, sincere, encouraging, funny and above all efficient, professional and safe. Cant say enough good things about this adventure. Will definitely go back!

“If only the shopping equaled the adventure!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The facility is visually pleasing, right down to restrooms. I have experienced zip lines elsewhere and never felt as secure as I did here. You can tell that a lot of thought (water station in the trees) and money (platforms are steel reinforced) went into the park. I wish the ATV portion was longer but that is a personal favorite of mine. The swing into the water was fun and refreshing. The lunch was better than the food served at our resort. It's obvious that Bruno and his team REALLY enjoy their jobs. Adventure and tons of laughter were had by all. I cannot tell you more because this is something you need to experience for yourself. You will not disappointed if you book this excursion.

The only downfalls were:
Purchasing insurance. This should be part of the package. Instead it's done as cash on site and I was asked to forge other members of my groups signatures.
Shopping. The sizes available were small or XL. Most of the merchandise was picked over which was a shame as purchases would've been made if the correct sizes were available.

“Best experience in Mexico!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The guides really make this excursion amazing. We rented a car from the Cancun airport, so had our own transport to the site. The guides are friendly, helpful and just plain fun. They really make it a great time for all ages. They assisted my 4yr old on the zip lines. We all had a blast swimming in the Cenote. I can't say enough about this tour. We purchased the photo package (which we never do), as they were a great memory of the day. Great service all around. The lunch was great, and they weren't sticklers about one serving per person. It was SO tasty, everyone wanted more. They really aim to please, and don't nickle and dime you the whole way. Locker rental is "free" with deposit. Bring your towels.
