Great mix of activity, adventure and beauty

This was a great and varied tour. We started at a closed cenote which we were allowed to rappel into. It was spectacular. We swam to the dark side and listened to the bats flying all around our heads (fruit bats, of course). The plant life was amazing and the light coming in from the sky played on the water. There was a platform to jump into. We then went to a semi open cenote which we snorkeled around in and then went on a kayak through an amazing gorge surrounded by every kind of plant life imaginable. The snorkeling was blah. There were wee fish and cool underwater plants, but it was underwhelming. However the kayaking was really like travelling into a lost world. And it was very easy going, long lightweight kayaks on smooth water. The third cenote was open, basically a sunken pond. We were able to do all kinds of ziplines into the cenote. There's a rope chair to sit in or stand on or superman on. There's also a bar to drop from and finally you can jump from the cliff. We did all four. The final cenote was again an open cenote. Here you did a mini slide into the water and then did a zipline bar. Once you dropped from the bar, you swam down an amazing lake gorge. At the end of the swim, there was a platform you could jump from.

This tour was amazing from start to finish. A snack and drinks after the first cenote and lunch after the third. The lunch was very high quality -- the best buffet we had been to all week with very high quality meats and fish. They give you towels, but we brought ours along anyway to have something dry to wear on the bus home.

There are facilities at every cenote. I highly recommend good quality water shoes. You can buy them on the tour, but you will need them. I also recommend using the insect repellant they provide before the jungle walk.

Finally we are in our mid-fifties and were able to do everything, but nothing is required. I think it's more about your sense of adventure rather than age. You will need to walk up lots of stairs and on slippery ground so careful with those $15 amazon water shoes. This makes a good full, but not overwhelming day. You will still have lots of energy to dance the night away.
A lot of fun :)

I see why this trip has great reviews. First, I think it’s the best deal out of the xenotes tours I saw available as there’s so much included. We got to do pretty much every activity I could think of during the day. I keep trying to pick a favorite part, but there were too many highlights to pick one. Our tour guides were Lisa and Miguel and they were friendly and very helpful throughout the experience. I can say I’d do this again if I had the opportunity. It’s definitely worth a day of your vacation to go on this adventure.
Amazing experience .

I don’t normally write reviews but this is for our wonderful tour guide Roberto. That made our whole experience so much fun. Being a person of height phobia, I had faced so many obstacles in Xenotes park. I went there thinking I could do it but it was t easy at all. If it was not for our tour guide being so patience and encouraging all of us along the way I would just ruin the trip. What a wonderful human being he is . I would like to thank the whole group and awesome tour guide Roberto for everything . Loved the experience.
Amazing tour for a variety of cenotes!

Amazing tour and super organized company. Everything you could possibly forget they will have for sale at not an extreme price when they pick you up. Would highly recommend to take this tour if you’re wanting to see a variety of cenotes!
SO FUN
