Two things which could be improved or clarified First off we came from Cancun and were picked up at 6:45 am. As the trip was advertised to be 13 hours we expected to be back by 7:45 pm. A long day but doable. Instead we were returned to our hotel at 10:30 pm. Too late! Secondly, we took the excursion to see the flamingos. After all that is the photograph on the website advertising the excursion. Instead it turns out the flamingos are very far away and binoculars are necessary to see them unless you take a boat. Well we took a boat but just not to see the flamingos. Otherwise we enjoyed it all very much. The Cenote at Ek Balam was beautiful and even had rope swings and a zip line to go into the water. The guides were great. The pink lagoons magical. The crocodile farm interesting. The boat ride beautiful with lots of birds and crocs and even raccoons and a horseshoe crab! We would recommend the trip. Just be aware of the timing and lack of flamingos up close
We wanted to visit Las Coloradas, and found this trip included so many extras that made an amazing, personal, safe, and exciting all-day adventure! Only 12 of us, started early & on time, and never felt rushed at any stop. First visited Ek Balam - ruin you can walk on, then lots of time and photos at the lake, then boat tour, delicious Mexican dinner, and crocodile farm visit! Our guide Edder pointed out things we would never have seen (horseshoe crab to touch, tree worms at the ruin, many flamingos) & staged photos that gave us great memories throughout the day. Both Edder & our driver Jorge, made us all feel safe and welcomed. Next day took a larger bus tour to ChichenItza with a different group, and it paled in comparison to how great this Las Coloradas tour was! My daughter had the BEST first experience in Mexico thanks to Edder & Jorge & Raul! Thank you!!
Wonderful and thought provoking trip with the perfect guide. I have been on a great deal of excursions in my life but I can honestly say this was the very best ever. Every care was taken to fill our day with great events including feeding pelicans and crocodiles, an incredible boat ride with fantastic scenery and to top it off the wonderful pink lakes at Rio Lagartos with the history behind it explained. I cannot speak highly enough of the Company and the staff whose sole intention was our enjoyment.
Great Tour Guide - Robert and very organized tour. Robert spoke 3 languages and is great in animating people. We saw the pinkest part of Las coloradas. Also, amazing visit to the best cenote - Ek Balam. Much better than all the rest cenotes I saw. We also saw the crocodiles and got to pet them.
Very professionally organized, tours started and left on time. Be aware as other reviewers have said, we left the hotel at 7:15 Am and got back around 10:15 pm so it's a very long day, but a very fun way to spend it.
