Thanks to Ivan he took very good care of us we booked last minute. We drove around the city , through the mangroves , plan on getting dirty it was raining. You might Want to bring a towel or poncho. The tour to check out the cocoa plant was interesting. He customized the tour based on what we wanted to see . He’s English is amazing so the best tour by far that we could understand what he was saying. Very knowledgeable of the history of the island. Thanks Ivan

We had a great tour guide thank you for that. It was like a private tour because no one else booked this tour except us. Driving the buggy was a lot of fun. The guide explained everything about the region and Mexico etc. Wonderful lunch was sufficient and tasty. There was always something to drink on the tour, which is very important. We also liked the two destinations, definitely book them. Worth the money!!

This was a beautiful (and my favorite) part of our recent trip to Cozumel. It was so nice to step away from the bustle of downtown into this sanctuary. The cleansing ritual was a great way to get started, and our guide, Russell, was so helpful answering my MANY questions about the bees. We got to see bees we've never seen before and came away relaxed and centered. Highly recommend!

It was very nice. I enjoyed learning about the way honey is made. I also love my new necklace. They also let you taste the honey and cough drops.

Beautiful learning about bees and how we need to preserve them
