pretty poor in areas away from the port. as in most of the carribean, snorkling was fun
3 out of 5
another snorkling tour, plus the natural park. Monkeys and parrots were fun to watch.
5 out of 5
cave tubing and zip lining are definitely things to do. Alfredo was an excellent guide on the cave tubing.
5 out of 5
actually went to Tulum on the mainland. Tour guide (Miguel?) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Pros: breakfast buffet, rooms cleaned twice per day

Cons: only tea and water were free, specialty restaurants too expensive

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!
