Definitely an amazing experience! My kids had an awesome time. The Cenote was a great part of the adventure as well. Very close to Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2013

Snorkeling in cenote and with lots of turtles was a great experience. Definitely recommend this tour is a small group.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2014

Our guide was nice, but not very animated. We saw quite a few turtles but not much else and the beach was very busy. It might have been better to just taxi to Axumel and rent snorkel gear. The cenote stop was very nice and all the family enjoyed swimming in the cenotes.
