Wow! It was super awesome trip… con de mi familia… 😀 Our guide was Carlos and was so good and funny across the speedboat ride. He has provided detailed instructions and checked and taken care of the equipment properly which helped my snorkelling experience best ever. He also showed us beautiful colourful fishes, star fish, corals and iguana 🦎 too! Wow! What a trip experience it was.

The actual content is basically same as it described beforehand. Two hours are very solid. Half an hour cross the lagoon and mangrove to the outside of Punta Nizuc. Then one hour snorkeling over a rope enclosed reef zone. The reef is a bit deserted but understandable, many other companies are also snorkeling at the same place.

It was fun to ride the speed boats and we also enjoyed the snorkeling. All equipment was good and well maintained. The snorkel was new and wrapped in plastic. I recommend this activity and company.
