What people are saying about Nichupté Lagoon

I want to thank Gabriela for her patience and kindess. She was an excellent guide, and she had a lot of knowledge about the area. For our time slot it was my friend and I so we were lucky enough to have a more personal experience. We saw fishes and even a sting ray! The water was so clear and tranquil. The little beach in which we stopped was so perfect. There was no one else there except us and it felt so great. The swim was refreshing. Here we also saw some little fishes too. If you're in Cancún I highly recommend this activity. Just keep in mind you'll get wet, and you'll be kayaking the entire way, which is not bad, but it is such a rewarding experience. I would recommend to come dressed in your swimsuit, bring a hat or cap, sunglasses, BIODEGRADABLE SUNSCREEN, and sandals and something to keep your valuables dry although they also provide a dry bag for you for a fee. Do yourself a favor and book this now!

We had a great tour, our guide Cebbe was perfect. The weather that day was especially great. Snorkeling was fun, of course it is clear that you shouldn't expect too much here. It's a small reef. Unfortunately, our engine failed on the way back. What I didn't like so much, we had in Cancun on almost all of the Get your Guide tours, and here, too, additional costs were incurred. A fee for using the Nichupte. Please take that into account right away. Thank goodness we still had some money with us because the card payment didn't work that day, very annoying. Otherwise great!

One of the most thrilling experiences of our whole Cancun trip! Perfect for the adrenaline junkie or the traveler looking to experience both sights and thrills.

Our guide was amazing! He had food for the fish, he went out of his way to show us 2 alligators. 7/10 would absolutely do again even tho I hate and fear fish.

A tour that you cannot stop doing if you come to Cancun! Excellent service and very good care and hygiene. So cute
