Amazing adventure!

This is a full day tour (morning to night, 8 AM to 8 PM). The day started with amazing views at Las Coloradas. The tour guide gave us a good background on the place in the bus. We were not there for too long but it was enough time for pictures and to take in the view. We then went to the river, Rio Lagartos, where we went on a boat to see the beautiful wildlife, such as flamingos and crocodiles. We also went to this area to put on the "Mayan mud" all over our bodies. (Make sure you put all your belongings in your bag before going in the mud because you can't really touch anything after!) They take you on a long boat ride to another part of the river to wash off the mud. The long boat ride lets you really enjoy all the views since you can't even touch your phone because of the mud! Once you wash the mud off, they take you to a pier to get off the boat and go eat delicious food. Any alcoholic beverages are extra. The reason I do not give the 5 stars for this tour is because the last part of the tour is at an alligator farm and the conditions are not pleasant. As an animal lover, I recommend this tour but without the alligator farm at the end. Overall, the tour was great and the staff was very friendly.

It was definitely worth the drive and the bus was comfy but you should bring some form of entertainment. The weather was great and the guides were well informed and very helpful. Arki was our main guide and he was awesome and knowledgeable as well as our boat driver Vincent who was hilarious and kind. The boat ride was the best part for us and we saw a lot of cool wildlife.

Really good tour!

Really enjoyed this tour! You get to see a lot of different things, it is a full day of sight seeing. The lakes were super pink, the boat tour was the highlight, we saw loads of birds (we even saw some flamingoes even though it's not the right season!) and a crocodile! Lunch was amazing (we had the fried fish) and the crocodile farm was really cool. The only reason this wasn't 5 stars was because we would have liked a bit of explanation about the lakes, rather than just time for photo's whilst there. The guide was great, really nice and funny. Would definitely recommend this tour.

The tour was really cool! We booked via viator two days in advance and received all the information about pick-up via Whatsapp from Omar. A small sprinter picked us up from our hotel in the center of Cancun at around 6:40 a.m. and brought us to the big tour bus. We drove ca. 1 hour to Playa den Carmen to pick up other people. Our tour guide was Edguardo, he was very friendly and explained everything in English and Spanish. After a 3 hour drive we arrived at Las Coloradas, where we had about 35 minutes to take pictures. After that we went to Rio Lagartos and had a great boat trip where we could see flamingos, pelicans and crocodiles. It was the highlight of tour for me! We were then able to take a mud bath and swim in the Gulf of Mexico. At the end we ate fresh fish in the restaurant and visited the crocodile farm. It was a really long but beautiful day. We were able to collect great memories and photos and it was worth every penny. We would recommend the tour! :-)

I loved the history. It’s a very beautiful spot. The crocodile farm was a bonus. The restaurant that we ate at was also very nice. It was a really long day; however, it was worth it.

Frank was a great tour guide. We have been on 3 different excursions dueing our stay in Cancun. This was our favourite. Finally, we were not rushed. We had time. The boat ride was excellent! When you are going make sure you take a tablet or phone with you. The travelling time to reach the sighseeings is 3 hours. Also the arriving back to Cancun part.
