Marietas islands are amazing, we saw a bunch of whales (in March) and even dolphins, and the place is beautiful, however, other companies looked better equipped when you got there other boats had more fun things.

Firstly, I would recommend not to ever buy any kind of tour in the street, restaurant... We paid around 600/700 pesos/person basically for nothing. We were told to be in the harbour two hours before the boat would even leave, after getting up around 6am,...More

The trip was $45 for the entire trip. It included the port and conservation fees. The boat and staff were timely and competent. The food wasn't amazing and is the only reason I didn't give full stars. Dramamine is a MUST!!! The ride out is...More

Took the tour to Arcos, Animas & Quimixto on March 29, 2017. On the pier before loading, we were advised to take water shoes for the hike to a waterfall, so a scramble ensued to find and buy the right size water shoes. However, once...More

The photographer we hired was part of the tour and gave us a CD with 275 excellent photos. Maybe a representative from the tour company you patronized can help you out.
