First time visiting Mexico and really wanted to go on an excursion that included the Mayan ruins, cenote, beach and this one was everything plus more. Herlan our tour guide was so friendly and informative. Gave so much information of Mayan history and answered all of our questions. The food was also delicious and very filling after exploring the ruins and swimming in the cenote. Our last activity was swimming with turtles and it was a perfect end to our active day. I had so much fun and I will recommend this excursion to all of my friends and family visiting Mexico.
I love this tour experience!

The cenote was my favorite! It was so beautiful and that was only part of the tour. Herlan was our tour guide and he drove us to each destination which included Myon ruins, swimming with the turtles, the cenote and lunch at an authentic restaurant.

He made everything so simple and also very fun! I’m so excited that I did this tour and will definitely do it again. I would recommend it to everyone

From beginning to end everything was flawless. We were picked up at the main gate of our resort (Bahia Principe) exactly when the email (make sure you check your email 24 hours before) indicated by an air conditioned van. The guide was wearing a shirt with the tour name on it and called our names. (There were lots of other tours picking up) Our tickets were checked, we paid the marine tax ($12ea) and were on our way. Everything was explained in detail as we drove from one activity to the next. We were able to leave unneeded items in the van and everything was perfectly safe. My husband had taken his iWatch off to apply sunscreen and accidentally left it on the seat and it was in the exact same spot when we came back. We started at Tulum Ruins and entered quickly and seamlessly. The guide spoke perfect English and explained everything we saw. We then had time to explore and take pics on our own. It was very hot so we were excited to go to the next part of the tour and get in the water. The guides at Akumal beach along with our own guide helped us navigate the water. We saw sea turtles, sting rays and tropical fish. Don’t bother buying the phone case they sell on the beach for $20. A couple we were with did but the pics were really blurry. The water was a bit murky so listen for the guide to indicate what is in the water and where. Stay near the group. After the snorkeling some were going onto the cenote but our tour was done. We were offered food and drinks throughout. We were then dropped off at the same gate to our resort. We had a wonderful time! We cannot say enough about the wonderful staff!!
Amazing Tour and Experience
