Such a fantastic experience and a necessary part of any Mexico trip. Sergio and his crew were super professional and kind. They helped us get over our fear of heights and have a safe and adrenaline-filled zip line tour and cenote swim. Please take this tour if you are looking for both sights and thrills and a very friendly crew to help make your vacation even more memorable.
