“Ok”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Nice area. Snorkeled but not a lot of variety in the fish. Infinity pool had a cool waterfall running into it and caves behind the waterfall where you could sit and relax and still be in the pool. Zip line looked cool too.

“Nice place to pass the day”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

This is a great place if you want to bring the family to get in the water or just to relax and take it easy for the day. The snorkeling is good for watching fish but unfortunately the reef has mostly dead from too many tourists.

“A TRIP YOU CANT MISS”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

From the time you are picked up until you are dropped back off you a treated to an adventure. The cruise to the Isla of Mujeres in the blues of water is enough to start your day. Breakfast is served on the cruise along with an open bar and sun bathing. When you arrive on the Island you are taken to the ECO park which has lots of activities that you are free to walk around and donn as a group or on your own from Ziplining to just hanging in the pool it is so beautiful. Then if you choose you can go shopping and it is a wonderful place with lots of shops and no pressure to buy.

“Fun, but a little spendy”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We went late in the day, because you can get in at a discounted rate. I would recommend doing this, because even arriving late we had plenty of time to enjoy the activities. We went snorkeling on the reef, but the water was pretty rough, and as I entered the water I got knocked back into the steps and cut my leg. Nothing serious, but it was hard to avoid. It is a fairly small area to snorkel, but there was a good variety of sea life and we even saw a sting ray on the sea floor which was really neat! The pools are fun to relax in, especially if you don't have a pool at your hotel (we did when we visited, so it wasn't really necessary). The zip lines are fun, but short. They move you through pretty quickly and each line is really short, but I had never done it before, and I enjoyed it. It was funny to watch people dropping their hand brakes in the water over and over again (still safe without it). Fun afternoon, but not a must-visit in my opinion.
