What people are saying about Mexico

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.
