Super nice tour, keeps what it promises, especially the price-performance ratio is clearly given here for 20 €, you can't get cheaper from Cancun to Playa del Carmen. The jewelry store, as well as the tequila store, work together with the transport company, hence the low price. But you don't feel like you have to buy anything. Prices in both stores are very moderate, not overpriced - we bought both silver jewelry and a few bottles of tequila.

Our guide Javier provided us with a terrific day of multiple experiences-floating through mangroves was amazing as were the trips to various cenotes and a zip-line trip across one of them. He also filled us in on a good deal of local history, language and experiences. All in all it was a highlight of our trip to Playa and I would highly recommend the experience.

This was the best shuttle service we have ever had in Cancun. From the time we walked out of the airport, found our driver with our name placard and arrived at our hotel less than 40 minutes passed. Driver was friendly and van was sparkling clean

Wonderful crew, boat not overcrowded like other tours, and food is tasty! Highly recommend! Family and kid friendly too!

great experience and you also get a lot of pictures
