This tour was AMAZING! The ruins were absolutely stunning. But be advised, that sun is beaming down on you and it’s excruciating so I recommend using one of the umbrellas that the tour guides have available for you. The snorkeling was awesome! We actually got to see sting rays and a turtle, along with several fish. It was great. I will say that if you aren’t a good swimmer, this may be a little challenging. I’m a subpar swimmer and I tired out toward the end with the currents. The final excursion was the cenote and it did not disappoint. I had already been to a cenote prior to this tour but this one was much larger and our tour guide made it much more exciting. Speaking of our guide, let’s talk about the team. Our tour guide, Jorge, was absolutely wonderful. He was energetic and knowledgeable about every part of the activities. Ana was training with Jorge but she was great as well. When I started to tire out during the snorkeling she helped me in the water and also let Jorge know so I could use the buoy. All in all this tour had so many firsts for me and I’m so glad I booked it.

The entire experience was so amazing and well worth the price! We had a jam packed day starting with a relaxing drive to Tulum. The ruins tour was informative and snorkeling nearby at the reef was unforgettable! We saw so much coral reef, sting ray, fish, and even a turtle. We wrapped up with an incredible swim inside a cave cenote, which felt like a once in a lifetime experience. Alejandra, our guide for the day, was incredibly nice and positive and made the tour very comfortable!

Definitely worth it! Our tour guide David was very fun and energetic which helped set the time for the group. The ruins were beautiful and Christina was very knowledgeable when she was teaching us about them. The Reef snorkeling was a blast. Got to see a turtle, some stingrays and of course the reef itself. The Cenotes was surreal. The water is very pure and soft.
