What people are saying about Quintana Roo

This trip is AMAZING!!!! Upon arrival the staff were very helpful and gave us all the information we needed. The location is beautiful on the walk to check in. The boats look fantastic. Our host and captain were amazing. I don’t drink that often but took full advantage of the tequila and the party atmosphere was in full flow from cast off to finish. The meals provided are tapas style giving you a little flavour of everything. There was a selection of beer premixed alcoholic drinks and soft drinks available and enough to last the whole night. Throughout the night there was fun interactive games to get everyone involved. Whilst traveling through the rivers you stop at various bands playing lively music on there own boats. There’s a toilet break half way with a little shop and bands playing music. The only slight disappointing thing was there was no vodka or rum on our boat but there was plenty of tequila.

It was an amazing experience, starting with a drink. The introduction of the origin of chocolate was really interesting. After the introduction it was time to start making our own chocolate with the great help of our guide. The last part of the day was combining wine and chocolate. It was really interesting.

Wau! What a beautiful moment. The sky from the water is amazing. Omer helped me a lot while I was struggling with the kayak so do not worry, you are in good hands. Bioluminescence was not like in pictures :p but fair enough. I had a superb moment Thank you!

By far the most amazing experience! I went for my birthday and everyone was great! So kind and kept us very well entertained. The music was awesome! Food was interesting but delicious. Definitely recommended this to my friends and family.

We were impressed! The theater is beautiful, the show is amazing, this was a complete WOW!
