Do not use
kathleen_k, June 2022
Do NOT use this company. I payed 645.00 for a snorkel trip on a catamaran and was left standing on the side of the road expected to board on a little broken down water taxi for snorkeling. They handed us a snorkel tube with no masks or flippers. A cooler filled with beer and when I refused, the tour guide had disappeared and did not return my call. I had to pay my own way back to hotel.

Hello dear traveler, we believe you are confusing the Holbox tour with another tour as we do not offer catamaran transportation and our staff is qualified to give you the best service. We received your cancellation and proceeded according to our policy with a partial refund. We are sorry you were not able to enjoy your Holbox adventure. We hope that on your next visit to the Mexican Caribbean you will give us the opportunity to show you the wonders of our country. Have a nice day.
Beautiful but not for english speakers
Marine_P, May 2022
Holbox is beautiful. The cenote as well even if crowded. Too bad our guide didnt speak english well it was very hard to understand since he didnt speak good and had a very strong accent (not his fault but we booked the tour saying we were speaking english). We couldnt enjoy the bike ride cause he barely gave us understandable instructions and didnt show us were to get them or anything so we just stayed on the beach. If you speak spanish you will enjoy it more. I am vegetarian and my lunch box was 2 slice of bread and some salad and tomatoes inside.. The crew was nice but we couldnt really enjoy the tour.

Hello dear traveler, thank you for informing us about this situation, that comments help us to know about our opportunity areas and improve our services. Our guides have training constantly in order to give you the best information of the places that you visit. The bike ride is an optional activity that you can take to explore the island by yourself our guide will always be around to help you if you need it, but it is not necessary to follow them during the day in the island. Regarding the vegetarian menu, we ask you to inform us with 48 hrs before your tour in order to considerate that and we can offer you a better service, and we can inform you about the availibility of the dishes. Thank you so much for your review and your understanding, we hope to see you soon!
