This was a great experience. We went through 4 different caves including a cliff diving, zip line and 2 others. The staff was very nice and respectful. Our guide Uriel and his colleague Jose Lious did an amazing job and were very knowledgable about the surrounding geography. One big negative and probably the only bad thing about the experience were the mosquitos. Those things at us alive. Bring off spray with you 100%. The food was also good. They served us rice with empanadas and vegetables. They also serve hibiscus tea. Overall it was an amazing experience and a must do if you are looking for a cave excursion. P.S. BRING BUG SPRAY! P.S.S Those mosquitos was not playing.

I took the tour of the Archaeological Museum with Poncho and it was FABULOUS! I would’ve never been able to connect to the museum on my own like I did on this tour. It was fascinating and engaging. Honestly a must do!!

This was an amazing experience! My husband and I were the only ones on this tour so it was private and intimate. Most tours are cancelled if 2 or less are signed up so I was surprised and thankful that Pakoloa (our tour guide) allowed the tour to continue. Pakoloa helped discover parts of the caves so he is very knowledgeable. He explained the history and also allowed free swim time within the cenotes and time for pictures. I recommend renting the wetsuits for your comfort ($10 USD each); we brought our own wet shoes and were allowed to use our GoPro (which was awesome). Afterwards we were given a snack then he drove us for mangos and showed us where all the best restaurants were in downtown Playa del Carmen before dropping us off at the departure point. This was the BEST tour of our trip. Once in a lifetime experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone.

We spent a great day with Ady and Adrian doing what turned out to be a private tour - as we were the only 2 guests. Both guides are well-informed and congenial, willing to adapt to our interests. We visited the Templo Mayor and the museum on site - so many artifacts with explanation of ongoing exploration and interpretation, the Palacio des Bellas Artes and environs - great lunch stop for view of the city and mountains, and the Museo Mural Diego Rivera - in depth explanation of one of the artist's famous murals saved from the 1985 earthquake. We now understand more about Mexican history and culture. We passed on the tasting of insects at the market!! - but guides were willing to take us if we had wanted. All round, a great day. Thanks Ady and Adrian

We did a food and market tour with ulysses! it was really great! We were in downtown Mexico City and saw the real Mexico. He has taken us through different markets and we have been able to try a lot of exotic and traditional food. He also told us a lot about the history and the neighborhood. We would do it again anytime and can only recommend him!!! 👍👍👍
