We have done the tour with a small group, we and our 15 years daughter, plus a further young couple. We felt always safe. Our guide Herlan was very friendly, his English was perfect and we got all information about the tour and many background information. We went by a little tour bus through the jungle. The way is full of bumps and it took us 1 1/2 hour to and 2 hours back - that was heavy and for sure not good for people with back pain. We did it without problems. And …the journey was the reward - the destination is the paradise. The friendly “captain” Yulia was awaiting us with the motor boot. And from than we had an amazing time. A wide open turquoise lagoon - we have seen many birds, and a lot of dolphins, jumping close to us out of the water; furthermore we went snorkelling in a riff, and at the end we had lunch in a little village, where the people life without electricity and running water. I guess we have been in paradise - + great guide + great boot tour + lovely place - long arrival

The guides were very nice, made jokes and spoke great English. The biosphere is beautiful and worth a visit.
However the experience advertised to us (the content of which has now been modified) is not at all what was actually offered to us:
- the tour does not start at 6am but rather at 9am and does not include hotel pickup, as was advertised to us;
- there is no breakfast included, contrary to what was advertised to us;
- there is no cenote included, contrary to what was advertised to us;
- the journey to the biosphere is close to 2h one way (4h in total) and the road is absolutely terrible. It is full of bumps and the van is not equipped properly to ensure passenger safety. We actually bumped our heads against the ceiling of the van and suffered backpain subsequently to the trip.

Although we tried to discuss the abovementioned issues with the company subsequently, they were at the very least unhelpful and demonstrated bad faith. For this reason alone, we do not recommend this tour.

My first issue was where I wanted to be picked up. I contacted the operator the day before and had that corrected. My other issue was I booked an English speaking tour and there was not even 1 person who spoke any English. This was the 3rd time this has happened to me in Mexico. So I missed out on any information all day and had no one to speak to all day. The lunch was so so as I expected. I brought my own fruit and a snack. I also brought my own snorkling equipment. No fins were provided. I enjoyed seeing the dolphins and a huge turtle. Very bumpy road into Sian Ka'an. The boat was also bumpy speeding along rough water. From Playa del Carmen this is a long day out.We did not get to see Manatees. They must be part of another tour through Sian Ka'an. There are several options to choose from.

We had a great time!! Our tour guide was very nice and was super detailed about what we would be experiencing. He had a very impressive background and education, spoke English very well and even made a couple of hilarious jokes. He even stopped at a local taco place and let us have the best tacos I’ve ever had.

The van to the location was very clean and the driver drove safely.

On arrival to our destination the locals were friendly and talked to us. It was a very welcoming environment. THE WHOLE TRIP WAS BEAUTIFUL. I’ve never seen a location like it. I highly recommend. So many animals and beautiful sites to take pictures. After our boat trip we had lunch at the local restaurant which accommodated my allergies which was very nice. I would highly recommend this trip.
