Don't do it!
, May 2021
I have been on many tours in Mexico over the years but this was definitely the worst. The mode of transportation (small old minivan was insufficient for the long dirt road to Punta Allen. They divided our tour up into two groups and shared one guide. We essentially had no guide. We were given no information about the area. The staff were not there to assist tourists off the boat and one woman fell and injured her ankle. Really a shame, I was really looking forward to this trip.
Great experience but a bumpy and long ride!

We loved seeing the dolphins and turtles and the boat ride overall. We were able to swim by the beach and also by the coral reef.
Great tour

The tour was great. The guide was friendly and knowledable. We enjoyed in search for turtles and dolphins as well as snorkeling on the Reef and beer in the lagune clear water.
An amazing day!

What an amazing day we had. Saw dolphins, sea turtles and birds. Enjoyed the experience. Searching for the animals could have been a bit longer for us: but this is just our opinion. Lunch was great. And so was everything the driver and tour guide did for us. The road wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. All in all: great experience. Thank You!
Wonderful experience

Our tour guide was fantastic and very very friendly. The journey there was rough but so worth it. It truly is a little piece of heaven.

WONDERFUL GUIDE, drivers, AWESOME local boat captains! LOCATION BEAUTIFUL. But DO NOT BOOK THIS TRIP due to road conditions! CANCEL it if you have already booked. Why? The hard gravel road to get to Punta Allen is deep potholes for about 35 miles. It is dangerous for your spinal/back health to ride this long in the BACK of a truck with no shocks. Just ask your doctor if you doubt me! It is like riding in a wheel barrow over speed bumps rather fast for 35 miles, each way. 2-3 hours each way. It could ruin your whole vacation with pain, or cause long-term damage. SOLUTION: This trip is basically to a beautiful mangrove area. Take a Viator tour to a mangrove area that is closer to Tulum or not far off hardtop, or in a van with shock absorbers.although this could take 3 hours each way IF you go to Punta Allen. VIATOR SHOULD CHANGE THIS TRIP DUE TO BAD ROAD CONDITIONS. The excellent guide warned us beforehand the road was bad, but the problem is that HARD banging your spine for hours and hours in the back of a truck is truly a risk.

(Las mejores).

Es war ein wunderschöner Ausflug, wir haben Delfine gesehen, große Schildkröten und Schöne Korallen. Unser Guide war sehr nett und hat alles klasse erklärt. Es war keine Typische Touristen Tour das was sehr schön.
Muy buena exursión

La excursión es de las mejores que puedes hacer en la Riviera Maya. El color del agua no lo he visto en otras excursiones. La playa donde nadamos y el lugar donde comimos excelente. El guía Adrián en todo momento pendiente de nosotros. El esnorquel espectacular. Y mencionar al conductor Saulo. Un 10
