This was far our favorite tour on our vacation! My husband is obsessed with sea turtles so I surprised him with this! He was so excited! We had an unexpected stop on the way at Cenote Azul for 45 minutes. It is gorgeous and was a nice surprise! We then headed to Akumal Bay to swim with the turtles. We were in the water for about an hour and saw 4 sea turtles, 2 sting ray, 3 baby squids and a ton of beautiful fish! Afterwards our tour guide took us a few hundred feet away to a restaurant for ourninvluded lunch of chicken or beef fajitas. It was hands down the best meal we had while staying in Cancun! We were the only ones who booked that tour so we basically got a private tour that day. Our driver and tour guides were so nice too! This tour was by far the best part of our vacation! Akumal Bay was so beautiful we decided next time that we will be staying there instead of Cancun!

We got lucky and had a private van just for the two of us. Driver, Javier, was funny and very friendly. Took us to the cenote first which was absolutely beautiful. He told us we'd have an hour and a half to do whatever we'd like there and he waited back in the van so we had privacy. Water was clear and cool. Not many other people there. Saw lots of iguanas, and got to jump off the side into the cenote (maybe 15 feet) which was a small adrenaline rush. You could see the fish everywhere since the water was crystal clear. Snorkeling was about 20 minutes from there. We saw 4 turtles and a lot of fish. The instructor there was so nice and pointed out whenever he saw a turtle. Javier took us over to a local place after for fajitas. Loved this tour, highly recommended.

Xavier who was our driver was excellent. He gave us the time we needed at each part of the tour while feeling safe at all times. Daniel was our guide for the snorkeling. He was awesome as well. He even took our camera way down below getting great shots of the turtles and other sea life. The cafe where Xavier took us for lunch had great fajitas.

We had Javier as our driver to for the Cenote and Marine Turtles. He was very polite, funny and informative that made this excursion even better. He went out of his way to make sure we were safe and taken care of. Cynthia was our guide for the snorkeling with the sea turtles. Again, here is another great addition to your company. She made sure we understood what we a were doing and how to really enjoy this tour. Cynthia has a great personally and makes everyone feel at home, right away. The pictures we got from snorkeling was fantastic! Cynthia even took a few close ups of the turtles for us. I really enjoy this trip and would book another adventure with Cancun adventures in a heart beat!

Alfonso was our driver and escort. He was wonderful. Very pleasant and informative. I would recommend this privite tour. Pablo took our photos while we snorkled. That is a great investment. Alfonso also took us to lunch after we snorkled the fish and fijitas were out of this world. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

At the time of our excursion, a storm had blown in excess amounts of seaweed. The waters were still a bit turbid as well. These factors did not detract from our enjoyment of viewing the turtles. Our driver and guide for the day was EXTRAORDINARY!! We were so grateful for his (David's) knowledge of the area and the consideration he gave to every aspect of the role he played in our day. David most definitely made our day both memorable and special!
