Pick up was at 7:35 am. The big bus was 10 minutes late. First we had to pay the 500 pesos per person in "taxes". Then the approx. 2 hour journey started with comfortable seats. The bus then took us to our destination, where motorized 3-seater Tuc Tucs picked us up. The trip was then another 5 minutes. Then we were divided into smaller boats at the ferry to Holbox. On the way to the island we made a spontaneous stop and saw dolphins. On the island, our guide showed us a few points where we could take photos. That was quite unnecessary and a loss of the limited time on the island, which was 2 hours. Short stops were made at Punta Mosquito and Isla de la Pasión. That was enough in time. We had lunch on the boat and it was delicious. Overall, our guide had very poor knowledge of English. So we got very little information about the island. Overall, the excursion was recommended.

The tour was overall very good and well organised. The bus came on time and was very spacious. After two more pickup stations we went to Chiquila. The guides (Jesus and Sergio) explained the course of the day, there was also a small snack. From Chiquila we went with three boats, into which the group was divided, first to a small island near Holbox. After half an hour we continued by boat to Holbox, where we stayed for 2 hours. Finally, the boat drove us to a cenote nearby, which was quite crowded and rather unspectacular. Hence a star deduction: the cenote could have been saved and the time in Holbox extended instead. Otherwise a very successful tour with extremely nice guides!

Great trip! Great guide (Jose). The individual islands are very beautiful and invite you to swim and linger in Caribbean colors. The lunch on the boat is small but fine. We really liked Holbox. The stay here should be longer than a good hour. Unfortunately, the cenote did not convince us, rather leave it out and extend our stay in Holbox. Unfortunately, we were given a very small bus for the excursion. Unfortunately, there was no sign of legroom here.

The experience of 10. Enrique and Pedro treated us great
