I highly recommend this tour. The guide was very entertaining and informative. It is quite a long drive to the ruins but well worth the drive. These ruins were far better than any Mayan ruins I've seen in Mexico. Another great guide at that site as well.
Nice tour but limited sights to see on land tour and the road infrastructure is somewhat pathetic. Sea portion was in a small boat but it was the best part of the tour and it included snorking which was pretty good. We had a couple of drinks on shore at the bar then headed back. Guide was knowledgeabe. Greeting was a bit difficult as outside the gate and no real waiting area so we stood on should in soft gravel. There is a nice area right next to the dock and we would likely only stay there if we ever went back.

Our tour guide Rolando was absolutely FANTASTIC! He was very knowledgeable about the island, taking six of us on a tour overlooking the harbour, then all over the island. We then went on a boat and toured the coast line of the island. The people who didn't wish to snorkel got off and spent time at a lovely outdoor restaurant while we snorkeled. Once we finished, Rolando provided a small lunch for us -- which was perfect! We then went to the Gumbalimba Animal Park where we were able to hold sloths, have capuchin monkeys climb all over us and have beautiful parrots land on our heads in different cages. It was a magnificent experience! We also could have ziplined at this park, but everyone in the group would have needed to do this and 100% of the group didn't want to. I cannot say enough good things about this Land and Sea tour. It was really a fabulous, fun day!

They took us to a high point on the island where we could see both sides. It was beautiful. We then went to West Bay and boarded boats for a water tour and some snorkeling. I personally would have liked more time in West Bay for walking around or sitting on the beach. Good excursion ending with a visit to a chocolate factory.
