Great crew took us out on a catamaran just off the coast to explore the 2nd largest coral reef in the world. Cameras recommended to capture all the sea life there is to see. The laid back crew were fun and you get 2 hours in the water to explore the reef. If weather permits a ride on the spinnaker concludes the trip. Just imagine being on a huge swing over the ocean. Return to shore and enjoy the excellent restaurant.

We were looking for something to do for a half day so we could have the afternoon to hang at the beach. We did the ATVs first which lasted for about 30-40 mins. It was fun and as long as you don't have unrealistic expectations about what it would entail then you shouldn't be disappointed. Our instructor was real nice, constantly was smiling, and was slapping high fives which seemed to reflect his genuine enjoyment of his job. We then did the speedboats which lasted for 50-60 mins and also was fun, although after a while it kinda got repetitive. They provided chips and salsa at the restaurant afterward and soda, we also purchased some beers and then they showed us the pictures the photographer was taking during the trip which was about 70 pictures that we purchased from them for about $30. There was a van there to take us back to the hotel right on time and we were able to get to the beach by about 1 PM as planned.

Next time we would probably do the Sea-Doos instead of the speedboats. I think they also offered a fishing trip and massages.

Wow what a great place! I have seen many beaches in the world but this one is one of the very best! We spent two days here as one was just not enough! Ages were from 6 years old to 45 years old. We snorkeled, we rode jetskis, we rode speedboats, we rode beautiful horses, we rode ATVs and there were still more things that we missed!
Service is fantastic, well priced and they even give you a great fresh lunch too.
This is my favorite place to take my family and they love it, oh and they have the best cappuccino in Mexico! - No kidding!

Our day started with the camel safari. The guides were great, but the"trail" wasn't. First off your not really riding the camel, you just sit on it while the guide walks you down the road. After you pass the scenic construction site, get passed by workers on bikes, and several vehicles, you get to the beach, which may be this tours saving grace. The beach was gorgeous. The animals were great, but much could be done to improve the "trail".

The Ocean Safari on the other hand was great. After a nice jet ski up and down the coastline, we got to our snorkeling destination. It was a little chilly the day we went, but we still got to see some great sea life: a turtle, octopus, sea ray, and several different kinds of fish. Next we got to go see a big hole (only way I could think to describe it. think of an under ocean cenote). It was 23 feet down and very interesting.

If you want to go on a great snorkel trip I recommend Ocean Safari. If you want a good animal backed tour, I don't recommend Camel Safari, at least not until they change their trail. Try Rancho Baaxal for an amazing horseback tour!

I had booked the ATV tour through Viator for June 2010. Unfortunately the tour company didn’t have a record of my booking so they had to contact Viator for all the details. This was eventually sorted out. The pickup information provided was incorrect and when I was at the correct location the transport was 20 mins late. The transport took 45 mins to get to Marina Maroma with a driver who didn’t say anything the whole way not even to the customers who spoke Spanish.
I’m not sure what the times on the Viator website mean as I booked their 1pm tour but the pickup was at 1.30pm and the afternoon activities didn’t start until 3pm and then the only time you can get the transport back is at 5pm.
The ATV’s were not automatic as advertised on the website. The total time on the ATV was 45 mins and you just go around a track on the hotel property and then back down a road that has cars and mini busses on it. You DO NOT go for a ride on the ATV’s to a beach, have a swim then get back on the ATV’s and return.
Marina Maroma has a very nice beach but you can’t really go swimming there as the Jet Ski’s and boats go in and out from this area. You can spend the day there and do several activities but you tend to feel that you are just herded around.
At the end of the day 4.30pm they open up a restaurant area and you can get free soft drinks and chips. However, throughout the rest of the day you have to pay.
