If you're staying in Cancun, rent a car for a day to get down to Puerto Adventura. It's much cheaper than taxi. THese guys love to spearfish. Cap. Dave was great and Mathieu was one of the best spearos I've seen.

As a professional freedive instructor and spear fisherman, I have high standards of expectations and Matty upheld them all. They put me on the fish and landed my personal best permit as well as had a blast. Went back and did it twice. Highly recommended!
