What people are saying about Quintana Roo

The show made up for everything. I think this one was very nice. The first part tells something about the maya time very impressive. Second part about different cities and dance. The ending is especially beautiful. I recommend doing the cave swimming in the afternoon and the other activities in the morning as it gets hot in the afternoon. It's way too short for 1 day. So much to see beautiful park. Butterfly garden not found which we found very unfortunate. It was way too hot this day so we were exhausted.

We had an amazing one-day tour to Isla Mujeres. The catamaran looks new, clean and very well-maintained, hosting around 50 guests. Activities included: snorkelling to see coral reefs & underwater sculptures, buffet lunch and 3-hour free time to swim and explore the island. All the staff were super friendly, attentive, energetic and knew how to excite & liven up guests with music, dancing & games. Highly recommend anyone visiting Cancun should book this tour to Isla Mujeres.

Great experience! I did decide to do the upgrade VIP and it was well worth it. Only thing that wasn’t amazing was the snorkeling. With the VIP option you have to swim a decent distance to see the under water museum. They can’t dock on top and I wasn’t prepared. Other than that it was amazing! Isla Mujeres is beautiful, the tour guides are very friendly!!!

They could have explained it a lot better and had guides to tell you what to do and where to go once you get to the island we missed our time to get in with the dolphins and we had to wait the next available time slot which caused us to not be able to take a ferry to the main part of the island

We totally enjoyed the clear boat ride and snorkeling. Being able to see everything so clearly was amazing.
