Too many people on this excursion to enjoy the cave experience. We had done this in 2003 and it was an amazing experience, this time, not so much.
Could not understand the tour guide. Accent was so heavy and he spoke too fast (Ruy). He was obviously knowledgeable and proud of his heritage but we couldn't understand 90% of what he said. The food was deplorable. An older Mexican woman using her hands to grab tortillas was off putting. The beef, pork and sauces were disgusting. The prices at this Pride of Costa Maya place were ridiculous. The museum tour was okay. The tour of the miniature mayan ruins and history of the area was agonizing.
This was the best excursion! We had a fantastic time making salsa and a guacamole, drinking margaritas, learning how to salsa dance followed by an ocean swim on one of the most beautiful beaches ever.
We had originally scheduled a snorkel trip but the seas were to high. This beach trip was O.K. Police presence and paid safety patrol. Beach filled with people selling trinkets (some made in india/china). No shortage of bartenders. The band was good.
