“A nice casual evening and definitely worth the $$$”
Reviewed 1 March 2011

I wanted to find a sunset cruise in or near Playa del Carmen and this was the best (and one of the only) option I could find. It is a cruise with a dinner on the beach afterwards. The price range is from $87-100 depending on the type of food you get (vegetarian, steak, lobster or steak and lobster). They picked us up at a hotel in PDC and it is about a 15-20 minute drive to the Playa Maroma beach, which is between Cancun and PDC. You are handed a glass of champagne and a couple of guitar players play some music while you wait on the beach for everyone to arrive. It is a lovely white sand beach and a nice setting for the dinner. We were told there are anywhere from 10-30 people on the catamaran and that was about right - we probably had around 20-24. The catamaran is moderate sized and they take you out for an hour or two on the water, serve drinks and appetizers. They do not skimp on the alcohol! Then afterward it's dinner on the beach - tables are separated by white sheets/dividers. It actually looked very quaint. Unfortunately, right when we sat down it began raining so we were ushered inside to have dinner inside. A saxophone player played some mellow dinner music. The food was average, nothing spectacular - most of us had the vegetarian which was lasagna, but oddly it had no noodles in it...? One person in our group had the lobster and thought it was very good. There was a corn soup and caprese salad, followed by the entree and lastly a dessert.
Overall, we all had a good time - for the price it is a really good deal. It includes transportation to the beach, the catamaran trip with drinks and appetizers, dinner, music and return transportation. They do take some pictures of you along the way and then offer you a cd to purchase at the end - I can't remember the price. All of the staff was very nice and accommodating. It is about 4 hours from the time we got there until we departed. I would recommend it!
