What people are saying about Nichupté Lagoon

great snorkeling experience crystal blue waters saw many fish under water people saw a sting ray which I missed :/ saw some statues under water tequila on deck and great staff members they were friendly and helpful definitely recommended and you must be there on time or they will leave the you behind

Well organized, even if you have to plan more time. We had to wait an hour on a water platform for our boat to bring us back. The figures are super exciting and the water is shallow. Very good price-performance ratio.

Very fun experience driving the boat and snorkeling was awesome! Amelio went to extra lengths to make sure everyone had a fun and safe time. Make sure you bring 15 per person to cover the docking fees.

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.
