We are absolutely thrilled. We travel a lot and this was by far the best and most beautiful tour we have ever done. The tour is worth every penny. The guides (we had Christian) an absolute dream. You feel very well cared for right from the start. The entire team makes sure that everything fits and responds very individually to the wishes of the guests. We had never experienced such hospitality. The whole thing is accompanied by a photographer (we had Manuel) - also amazing. You can decide afterwards whether you want the photos or not. Honestly, we paid about $40 for all photos (120 pieces). That's more than fair - we also gave more because Manuel tried very hard and conjured up really great photos! The individual locations that are approached are amazing! You can collect such great impressions. We can only recommend - do the tour!

We enjoyed the buggies ride , cave swimming and beach. Overall fun. Pros - Ride from the resort was quick, buggies route was fun, coffee-chocolate-mamjuana testing was ok, beach break was good Cons - long wait at the center for other people, things are overpriced and I will recommend not to buy anything there, cave swim time was 15 minutes which is too short to enjoy

It was awesome, just wished they could come pick me up directly in front of my hotel , I had to walk way to the front by the security gate . Other then that , I had a great time !

Simply amazing park - the waterfall area alone would worth the admission price, but there's much more to explore. Hoyo Azul is a must see!

Had a great day out. Our tour guide and driver ruddy & Oscar were very informative on the local culture and were very funny and friendly
