They picked us up at the security cabin of our hotel at 7:40am (after 15min late), then the driver dropped us off at "meeting point" near Tulum and said to do a check-in. There was a huuuuge line that took easily 40min, and after that we got a bracelet and had to find "our guide". He seemed a little lost to find all people of our group (24 in total). So we had to wait all these 24 people arrive from all different places of Riviera Maya, do the check-in then take the van to the 1st destination... To conclude, we arrived in Tulum at 9:50am (over 2hrs after we were picked up) already tired and frustrated with the disorganization. What stressed me more is that the description of the tour doesn't mention at anytime about this "meeting point" and that would take 1:30h more than our time for nothing (just waiting...)
Em geral foi uma boa tour mas com muito espaço para melhorar: - Saímos do hotel às 7:30 de Playa del Carmen, e fizemos uma paragem gigante numa estação de serviço que nos fez só sair de Playa às 10 da manhã; - O caminho é péssimo, pelo que as condições do transporte podiam ser melhores - os assentos não são confortáveis e no meu caso fiquei mal disposta o dia inteiro; - A paragem no cenote deveria ser reavaliada, parece-me que perdemos tempo demasiado aqui; - À chegada à ilha, e pelo preço que pagámos (não é uma tour barata) devia ter sido feita uma mini tour, por muito mini que fosse; - Ao almoço... o peixe até pode ser fresco, mas os acompanhamentos são muito mauzinhos e são os mesmos para todos os pratos.
It was good. Sian Ka’an is very beautifull. The road to get there is a pain, would not recommend to people with back injuries. Our guide Adrian was very nice and knew a lot about Sian Ka’an. We had a good time, didn’t see all the animals but the surrounding itself is beautifull. Also, try to bring your own breakfast as it was really disgusting. Enjoy!
We had an absolute blast! The driver was excellent as was our guide Ehrlan. Very professional but personal as well. Ehrlan was a wealth of information! He spent the time to get to know each of us and told us some very interesting facts about the islands. I will cherish this tour for as long as I live!! I'm ready to go back!!! :)
It was an early start from Playacar but the drive wasn't bad. It's quite a long trip out on the boat, which didn't bother me, but when we got into deeper water there were some big waves. Once there the sharks were everywhere! There's quite a bit of effort needed to try swim with them but definitely worth it!
