We had a problem with the starting time of the excursion, on the voucher it said that it started at 11 a.m. and they picked us up at 12 p.m. . Adrián, our guide and partner in the snorkel, great! He helped us in everything, he accompanied us and was aware of everything, he encouraged us, he put on music, we danced, he made jokes. It was very nice. The wonderful reefs, the color of the sea, corals, fish, etc. and we reached the sky, we saw some stars but not many, although the sea is incredible, its color, crystal clear, is worth it. Finally we stopped at Cielito and had ceviche and pineapple, great! Having a cold beer with ceviche on a spectacular beach, with manta rays and little fish around you, is priceless, it was incredible. The lively return with Adrián and the people of the group dancing and toasting for the good day we had spent.

It was great overall and with good organization, which is not obvious in Mexico. Loved the crew and how they managed the crowd. I was hoping for a stop ad Cielo beach but we ended up at the crowded Mia Grand beach park, but this is because of food/lunch options. The food was actuallly the only downside as it was basic and pre-cooked and came in cold. Also not too much time on the beach ( only 50 mins including eating)

This trip was amazing!! The crew was beyond fabulous! We took off to our first reef and snorkeled then got back on the catamaran and went to our next spot about 10min away. We saw starfish and other fish. We then headed to another beach only waist deep. We then went to playa Mia for lunch and fun. The trip back was filled with music, dancing, beverages and so much fun. I highly recommend this trip!
