Yep! This tour was just as wonderful as I had heard it was. Although neither of us had ridden electric bikes before, my friend and I found them a snap to learn. We were the only two on this tour, so we had our guide, Fernando, all to ourselves. He was so helpful and informative and guided us through a few busy streets to the back roads. He was always on the lookout for our safety. After a stop at a small ceynote and a road-side attraction, we made our way to a beach club for some snorkeling and lunch. We then road back to the bike shop.
If arriving in Cozumel from the ferry I would suggest taking a taxi to the bike shop. We read on the website to expect a 30 minute walk to the bike shop. However, it ended up taking these two baby boomers almost an hour. The taxi ride back to the ferry was quick and easy.
We had Zury as our tour guide Fernando was the rearguard.
We really enjoyed the bike ride that took us off the beaten track and we really enjoyed the relatively secluded beach. Before we got to the beach, there were two breaks along the way: one at the cenote home of Pancho the crocodile and one at a little wayside Mayan exhibit.
At the beach, the snorkeling was well coordinated. We had a pretty windy day and choppy waves, so the snorkel was cut a bit short, but we saw several species of fish and at the end a Manta Ray came swooping through - very exciting!
I recommend three things: 1 make sure before beginning that you can straighten your legs when you sit o the saddle and pedal down. 2 start with the bike on setting 1 not 3 to make pedaling easier and adjusting to the speed of the electric motor. You can always gear up as you get comfortable. 3 talk amongst the group so everyone is on the same schedule at the restaurant at the beach. A couple of our group didn't hear the recommendation to order right away, so the rest of us ended up waiting for their food
The restaurant and facilities were clean and the food was good the banana margarita was a hit and the other folks in our group reported that their food was good too.
Fernando hat uns sehr schön und sicher mit dem E-Bike herumgeführt und auch beim Schnorcheln schöne Stellen gezeigt. Insgesamt sehr entspannt und locker.
We had fun on this tour...the electric bikes were easy to get used to...although we had hoped to be able to pedal more, the bikes are much heavier than normal due to the battery and fat tires so we ended up using the electric most of the time. That was the other problem - on some bikes the battery wore down before we made it back home. That said, Fernando who led our group and the rest of the team were very accommodating, very customer service oriented. We biked to a very nice area to snorkel...plenty of beach chairs and a restaurant and changing rooms. We thought it was a great value for the price!
