Fun day

We had a great time. The boat ride was fun and snorkeling was OK. Didn't have enough time. The beach was good. We couldn't hike to the waterfall so we were on the beach for longer than normal. The food was quite good and the crew were really good. All in all a fun day.

Crew was great even if everything else was not

Honestly, the only reason I’m even giving this experience these many stars is because the crew was great. They were attentive and tried to make the experience a good one. There were photographers who captured great pictures available to us at the end, which was a pleasant surprise. The first failure (and I don’t know who this applies to) is the published time. It stated 9:15 when the tour didn’t actually start until 10:30. Even the company’s advertised time was 10am. Our kids were exhausted after having to wait for over an hour just to get on the boat. The time should be advertised as what it actually is. Additionally. The website stated that the boat was only booking at 30% capacity. This is literally the only reason I booked this activity. That was far from the truth. It was booked full. And after we left the dock it still made a stop at Zona Romántica to pick up even more people. There weren’t enough chairs. I understand the area is still trying to recover from the pandemic, but it should be advertised for what it is so that people know what to expect. The process of boarding and being transported to/from the beach was tidious but that’s always the case when you have that many people. The restaurant area was possibly the biggest disappointment. It was the most rundown restaurant on the beach. We were told the beach chairs were included for our group but when we got there they told us we had to rent them. They were falling apart. Quite literally. The meal we were served at the restaurant was a child size portion and almost inedible. The kids are their burgers ok but the fajitas and fish were quite bad. My fish couldn’t even be chewed it was old and overcooked. We saw people who were not part of the tour Get deliscious looking meals so I just assume whatever contract the boat has with the restaurant must be for the bare minimum. Next to our chairs there was a group also with the chairs of the restaurant who progressively got more messy and nothing was done about it. They were throwing beer cans all over the beach and no one from the restaurant would either pick them up, or tell them anything about it. If we had known this would be the expectation we would have just gone to a different restaurant on the beach and gotten a decent meal without the literal trashy experience. Over all, the crew on the boat was great, the beach experience left a lot to be desired and I would advise the boat reconsider their contract or change the expectation.

FUN!

This was a fun trip, ESPECIALLY for the price. We didn't expect the food to be good, so weren't suprised that it wasn't. But the staff was very attentive and friendly. Snokeling isn't very clear in that area but we were able to find one particular reef that was great and swam with many vibrant fish. The fishing village is fun, lots to do. If you plan to go on the waterfall hike, make sure you listen carefully to instructions/ask questions because our friend missed the hike thinking they would notify him before they left to head on the hike. Other people on the trip said the waterfall was a life-changing experience for them. They kick the party up on the ride back with more drinks, dancing a d karaoke. Tons of fun!!

The employees were very friendly. The difficulty and length of time to get on and off the boat was frustrating. The snorkeling was disappointing. I actually left the tour and took a taxi back to my hotel.

Most of the staff was attentive. Quimixto portion made the trip. Would have liked to stay longer. Food on boat was salty, and food on beach was not much better.

Loved this trip! Covid protocol in place. The snorkeling at Los Arcos was beautifully clear. Saw lots of fish. Beach at Las Animas was just what I needed. And the staff worked to make everything fun and engaging
