Perfect RELAXING Excursion! Highly Recommend!
Monika_S
, Jul 2021
Great excursion! We scheduled to do it the day before we were leaving Mexico and we loved it because it was a perfect way to relax on the last day of vacation. Our guide Stefan was amazing! We were the only two non-Spanish speaking guests on the tour and he made sure that he communicated all the information to us. He gave us an awesome tour of Isla Contoy where we learned a lot about the history of the island. Book this tour! You will love it!

Food poisoning
katarzynas821
, Nov 2019
I've had a food poisoning after the trip. The boat for to small for the weather conditions that day (windy day, huge waves). Consequently, the boat trip was far from comfortable. The snorkeling was the worst I've ever experienced - poor visibility, huge waves and no reef. The captain should resign form snorkeling or at least try different spot. We lost lens to the camera. We've left it in my bag in locked compartment. After the trip, it was gone. The tour was the weakest point of our 2 week trip around Yucatan. The only positive of the trip is Isla Contoy itself. Truly beautiful. My recommendation: go to Isla Contoy but look for different tour provider.
