What people are saying about Cozumel

VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND SAFTEY CONSCIOUS. 1 GUIDE LEAD THE EXPERIENCED RIDERS AND 1 STUCK WITH US, SLOW PEOPLE. HAD FUN AND THE CENOTE WAS VERY LUSH AND BEAUTIFUL. THE ONLY DRAWBACK WAS IT WAS IN A CAVE INHABITED BY BATS AND THE WATER WAS GREEN AND FULL OF LEAVES AND SUCH AND I DIDN'T GET IN FOR FEAR OF SOME TYPE OF CONTAMINATION AND SMELLING NASTY AS I HAD MORE TIME BEFORE RE-EMBARKING ON THE CRUISE SHIP. THE TEQUILA TASTING WAS GREAT AND I REGRETTED NOT GETTING THE COFFE FLAVORED TEQUILA IT WAS THE CHEAPEST OPTION ON THE ISLAND.

Everyone involved was friendly and knowledgable. Everything was very clear on what we needed to do once we got to our meeting point. We felt safe, which can be difficult in an unfamiliar place with people you don't know. We had a great time snorkeling.

Exceeded exprctation. Perfect communication. Very affordable. Guides were very helpful and attentive, patient with kids. Boat was comfortable, not too crowded.

The trail is rough and many turns. Awesome for someone liking to drive. A little dusty. Would be grat and muddy after a rain.

It was great. They helped me keep up with the others by pulling me by a rope when we went to see the last reef. It was fun.
