A Relaxing Journey with Terry: Exploring Ruins, Caves and Turtles - ok, first of all, TERRY is a very calm and organized person, when you listen to him, it's like listening to jazz. you start the day by driving in a cool and spacious van (modern). Then a tour of the ruins, which, if not for the guide, would not have been interesting and would have brought nothing (he tried to put us in the shade at each stop, while he was standing in the sun, very lovely). Then you go to the cave where TERRY (who really loves and respects nature) explains everything to you and takes good care of you. After a cool stay in the cave, you go to the most interesting part - the turtles. (before that, the food is 6/10 in the same place) where you swim in the sea with the young guys from the staff and see different types of turtles and animals. It sounds like a description of a trip, I know, but it's really worth going + it's cheap. I HOPE TERRY GET A FEW DAYS OF HOLIDAY 😅❤️

Amazing day with actions - What an amazing day with three different wonderful activities! Our tour guide Enrike (with a 'k') was super nice and passionate about the nature. In particular, his guide into the cenote was incredible. Our family was fortunate to see the underground river with him. Finally, Enrike gave us great advice about the area. I wish I could give 6 stars for this trip!
