  • We booked this excursion via Royal Caribbean and really enjoyed it, and felt it was a really memorable and fun experience. Well worth it! Marcelo was our guide and was entertaining and helpful. Our tour included lunch and a tequila tasting which was fantastic, too! I would have loved to have brought some of this non-burning or face-making smooth tequila home, but were watching our budget. The tour in the cenotes was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience, we felt! Floating around in these caverns and learning about the history and science of the area was just awesome. We didn't have any problems on the notorious "vomit comet" ferry from Cozumel to the mainland, but a few other passengers did and it was definitely very, very choppy ride. (Tip, sit as low and in the center as possible like we did! Avoid the window seat trap for less sea sickness) I'm really glad we took the tour. Wish we had brought our camera and waterproof case - the things we had read ahead of time said NO pics allowed, but turns out we could have. But it was nice just to be able to snorkel and check things out and not worry about phones... awesome, memorable experience. :)
  • Great guides, thank you Pablo & Luigi! Tons of information, deliverered in a straightforward way. Plus these guys had a great sense of humor too. I was made comfortable and felt very secure in Pablo's group as we toured the Cenote. Plus the tour offered a wonderful lunch better than anything the cruise had on offer! After all that there was a tequila tasting too! Lovely time over all!
