BE READY TO BE PICKED UP AT 6 AM IF YOU ARE IN THE HOTEL ZONE-Cancun. That's a fair warning, we stayed at Riu Cancun and pick up was SUPER early and we had to pick up 5 other couples on the way, it turned out to a 11 hour day. The 5 stars are because the experience itself was amazing. The turtle swim was magical and the cenotes at Chikin Ha were breath taking, the staff was very nice and the snack was pretty late in the day so were pretty hungry by then.

We had the most amazing day snorkelling at Akumel Bay, we saw many turtles and stingrays up close, and even snorkeled along the reef and saw many incredible fish. Katrina and Tamara were very professional and informative tour guides and made our trip extra special.
A truly magical experience!

Great tour, fun and full of turtles. The best part was the cenotes

It was an amazing experience! Francesca did a wonderful job explaining how the cenotes formed and gave us lots of information on the turtles. We saw three turtles, a stingray, coral, and other fish. The lunch that they served was a welcome break. I wouldn't recommend the trip if you have problems climbing steps, since we had lots of these. We also saw a locust, termite nest,iguana and beautiful birds. My friend and I really enjoyed this trip.

We had a great time. Our guide Aya and driver Manuel couldn and #39;t have been more helpful. The cenotes were beautiful and very interesting. We saw several turtles while snorkeling in Akumal. We highly recommend this tour. Z

Great, friendly service. The area is also spectacular, with plenty of turtles, etc. One member of the group had mobility issues, and the guides were accommodating of that. Thanks for everything.

It was everything I hoped for and then some. We saw 9 different turtles at Akumal! The cenotes were beautiful. The most amazing thing about the adventure was our guide Adan. He was very informative and took the time to answer our questions. I would recommend this to anyone wanting something a little different.

Ive experienced many day excursions in the 3 times Ive visited the Cancun area and this is by far the most outstanding of them.

Our guide, Louise, was thoroughly informative, helpful, and professional. She briefed us w/background info, fitted our equipment, looked out for our safety, and made sure we had a great time. We saw a dozen or more green turtles and 3 types of rays.

Having the photographers services frees you to enjoy the moment rather than worry about capturing good shots to view later. The best photos I have of our vacation are the ones that the photographer, Guille, took on this excursion. If only he would follow us around and take pictures of our entire trip!

Some tips:
Bring an inexpensive workout shirt, the type that wicks moisture, to wear under your swim vest at Akumal. If you want more sun protection, make it long-sleeved.
Bring water shoes to protect your toes from getting bumped and scraped on the underwater boulders in the cenotes.
The early departure is a small sacrifice but worth it, since youll avoid the worst of the crowds. If your hotels buffet or room service isnt available for an early breakfast, plan ahead by stashing something the night before.
Yes, its a long drive from Cancún. But you cant change geography. Bring a change of dry clothes so you dont have to wear wet swimsuits on the return ride do have your swimsuits on and ready to go when you leave in the morning. There are restrooms/changing rooms at both locations.
Bring enough cash for the photos and gratuities. You may think you wont want the photos, but youll change your mind after you see them. An appropriate tip would be 10-20% for the guide if they work hard for you and give you an amazing experience.
While not required, its a nice gesture to tip the driver, maybe 100 pesos 5US, since hes guarding your stuff in the van while youre having a good time and he cleans up your sandy mess afterwards.
Be aware that the guide may be speaking more than one language with other members of the group.

This was the highlight to our trip to Cancun . The bus to collect us was running late but they phoned to let us know which was much appreciated . The whole trip was fantastic . I have been talking about it all the time to anyone who will listen ! We bought the photos and printed them off to put in Christmas cards . They were excellent quality and definitely captured a 'moment in time ' on a very special day .

Nothing short of amazing. Our guides were very respectful of the turtles home and knowledgeable about the cenotes.
