Good but not great
Aiden_T, Aug 2023
A little misleading this trip as there isn’t really any visit to the jungle, just visiting the sites which happen to be there, but no specific jungle time. The sites themselves are worth a look but be warned it takes a long time to get between sites. The food provided is not the best but then that’s Mexico for you. Boat trip to get to the first site was pleasant. The guide was pleasent and well informed and they do their best to accommodate. 6/10
Would return

We loved our tour. They were on time, the driver was wonderful. And our guide was informative and funny. It was a long day. I would consider staying overnight with the Lacandona I believe the experience would be even better spread over two days.
Mixed: attraction excellent, tour very problematic

The sites were great, the history informative, events confirming, and scenes beautiful. The guide was knowledgable, helpful, and good, but took us 2 hours out of our schedule and tour for his personal and next day tour advantage, ending our trip with very unpleasant and negative experiences and chain of events.

BEST TOUR W/ ANTHONY. We had a private tour because we were the only English speaking of that day. Anthony is so knowledgeable and a wonderful teacher. He made the ruins come to life for us and his passion for Mayan ruins is so prevalent. Make sure to bring extra pesos to tip along the way!

Tony gave us a great long day of touring. We left at 6am and returned at 7pm. There was a minor slip up with the boat trip where we had to travel separately. Otherwise we had a great day.

La veille je n'avais aucun contact pour le lieu de prise en charge et l'agence ecoexperiencas était fermée. Heureusement l'hotelier a pu par mail renouer contact. Etait-ce ce qui était prévu? Car pour le prix, bus rempli, siège sur roue sans cesse secoué (long parcours) et ce n'était pas le nom de l'agence affiché sur le minibus. Je suppose qu'elle m'avait oublié et soustraité au dernier moment suite à ma relance. Je pense que c'était les excursions qui pouvaient être prise aux hotels à coût nettement moindre. Guide trés moyen. Dommage les sites valent la visite.
