    It would’ve been better if they let the guests not wear masks on the rides and activities. There were some activities that will get you wet and having masks isn’t the most fun. Also, if they require this, make sure that there’s replacement masks that they’ll give. The zip lines were fun and enjoyable. We were able to conquer our fears. River swim was a blast and the ATV ride was also something that I would recommend. The rafting is boring. That wasn’t the rafting we were expecting. I suggest that you place a notice for the guests to know when they’re nearing the camera. We were always caught off guard. Food was okay. I like the way that it’s served by the staffs. The wait staffs were all polite and kind. Wish there were more rides and activities. Overall, it’s a good experience.

Simon was a great guide, very passionate and entertaining. The tour contains a lot of destinations in one day, so you can see a lot of important cultural things. They really have a good time management, although the time in the cenota and in playa del carmen were too short. Maybe the visit of the maya villaga / shamane could be shortened.

Amazing trip! The tour guides, Ricardo and Raymond, were energetic and knowledgeable and they made a genuine effort to make certain that everybody had a good time. I enjoyed the entire experience.

We loved our guide Ricardo. My daughter Brittney was able to have a great experience for her 18th birthday with the whale shark

Pyramids worth every effort to see. The group was small, everything worked out, we have no objections.

This tour was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides and we had a great time.
