    This trip was amazing. The crew was really fun and engaging. They spoke multiple languages,so nobody was left out. They served an amazing lunch and provided drinks thought the entire trip. Isla Contoy is very beautiful and well preserved. We had the entire beach to ourselves.

    The tour was very well organized and timely. Our boat had about 18 people and it didn’t feel crowded. The guides are really nice and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. And the scenery was spectacular, especially Isla Contoy. I highly recommend this company!

    Surely the 'rude review' has been put on for the wrong company? We have just done it and it was really good. The staff were without exception multi lingual, friendly and absurdly good fun at times. We had a lovely boat ride with optional snorkelling to get there. If we didn't go

    Response from Caribbean A, Public Relations Manager at Contoy Eco-Adventure
    Responded 10 Nov 2019
    Dear Visitor, First of all let me thank you for taking the time of writing this review, we take all of our customer's opinions very seriously in order to improve our service. That been said, all of our guides are not only bilingual but trilingual in some cases and are certified by the mexican government as experts in Contoy Island and it's sorroundings, it is actually the first time in 5 years in TripAdvisor that we receive a complaint concerning our bilingual staff, about the rudness we would have liked that you would be more specific, we constantly check our staff attention with all the cameras on board the boat in order to ensure that our customers are getting the best service and we also have customer service training every two months. Overall we are the best option to go to Contoy island, we feel sad that our service was not good enough for you and you can be sure that we will work harder in our people and their customer service skills, thank you very much for your review and we hope, that if you come back to Cancun, you let us take you again on this or any other of our tours to give you our very special VIP treatment. Best regards Roberto del Castillo Web Marketing Manager
