Such an amazing day! Our guide Big G was brilliant and hilarious and our guide at the pink lagoon was fantastic and an excellent photographer. We went in Feb so the flamingos weren’t around due to the season, but the day was great overall. The crocodile sanctuary was definitely one for the bucket list and the Cenote was gorgeous. Quite a way away from cancun, so be ready for the journey.

It was an incredibly great tour. Las Colorades are actually just salt lakes, where the salt is produced, but the combination with the speed boat tour, the delicious food and the crocodile farm was an experience. Pablo the tourquide was great. Even if the pickup was a bit tedious, it was worth it

The highlights of the tour were definitely the pink lakes and the crocodile farm. The boat tour was nice. Unfortunately, the cenote was the first to be approached and the water was too cold to swim. The bus was clearly too full, it was very uncomfortable to sit. And unfortunately the German guide didn't come because of illness. The guide had to switch to several languages in the large group. I also found it unfavorable, otherwise the team was very friendly
