Incredible experience - Excellent excursion today with Jorge and driver William. Started at Tulum ruins, onto a cenote which was incredible. We saw lots of bats and the cenote itself was beautiful. We had lunch at Akumal, I opted for fish which was lovely and my partner had the chicken quesadillas which he also enjoyed. We finished off by swimming at Akumal beach, we saw plenty of HUGE turtles and a couple of stingrays. The trip was between 7:45-5pm so it is a long day but completely worth it. Drinks are provided throughout the day which is a nice touch. Would highly recommend!!

Mayan ruins, caves/cenotes, and turtles - Riviera Maya excursion! - Wonderful experience, all around! Covered natural and man-made ancient wonders! Our tour guide, Ivan Pimienta, was great - courteous, knowledgeable, and shared his beautiful perspective of history, culture, and the environment. He was great with the adults and also with our daughters (9 and 12 years old). His associate/driver, Mr. Frank, was also kind and patient. The tour covers ancient Mayan ruins with a guided tour, swimming through cenotes (caves) and then off the beach with turtles (the latter 2 are manageable but mildly taxing activities). Ivan P. made the entire day really superb!

What a day! Perfectly planned full of highlights - We had a great day! Traveling a family of four with our two kids being 11 and 14. Everybody enjoyed the day and everybody could participate in everything. Good mix of cultural activity in the beginning and then action with the Cenote adventure and snorkling at the beach seeing seaturtles and stingrays and a lot of different fish. The guided tours was in combination with other small grups: Maya ruin: approx 30 people (a bit crowded) Senote afventure: approx 15 people (good group size) Snorkle: approx 15 divided into 3 smaller groups with Theis own guide (perfect!) All in all one of our best day in Mexico! Our guide: Terry Our driver: ?

Tulum and Caves - Javier and Frederico were great. Very nice fun careful carrying people. We didn’t get to swim with turtles because ocean was too rough. Way too many stops to pick up people so our trip was cut short and we didn’t have enough time at each place. Enjoyed tulum and caves but wish we had more time at each.
