Great day with teens exploring

Such a great day! Claire was a fantastic guide; a wealth of information about the Mayan civilization, Tulum and the flora and fauna! She made the day smooth and pleasant. She takes great photos! We beat the crowds and the heat in Tulum; early pickup was very worth it! We were not able to snorkel due to weather, so she added a second cenote (our choice to add this or go back to the hotel early) which we really liked! We visited one underground and one open cenote and used the snorkel gear in both; you can really see better that way! Lunch was great at Juanita’s; traditional homemade Mexican food:) Driver was excellent and the van stays with you all day; your belongings are safe in there. Highly recommend!
Excellent day trip!

Photos from Tulum, Cenote, Turtles tour March 1, 2022. We were staying at a hotel in Playacar. Our guide, Juan, made the trip so fun and informative! Our driver, Josue, got us safely and conveniently to each stop and was always waiting with cold drinks and snacks. This was the first of two tours we took with Juan and Josue and they were the highlights of our time in Mexico! Follow the Absolute Adventures’s recomended pick up times for the best experience (before crowds and cooler in am)!
Outstanding tour!

We had a group of 6 people and everyone had a wonderful time. From her explanations of the stunning ruins at Tulum to her professional guiding through the cenotes, Nora was outstanding! We definitely recommend this tour!
Amazing tour!!

My partner and I had a fantastic tour with Manuel when we visited Cancun in February 2022. The Tulum ruins are incredible, and our guide provided a comprehensive overview of their history. The cenote (you have a choice between an open-air and cave cenote, and we chose the cave) was truly remarkable, and to be able to snorkel and look at the stalactites and stalagmites was really cool. The highlight for me was probably snorkeling with the sea turtles--we saw 5 turtles, plus a stingray, pufferfish, and many more sea creatures, and were able to get really close. Plus, Manuel brought a go-pro and shared the photos with us after. What a great souvenir! My husband's highlight was probably lunch--he was talking about the sambutes all day :)

Absolutely worth the extra cost to have a private tour--it made pickup from our hotel super simple (no driving around waiting for other tourists), and we were able to ask all the questions we wanted and get a really in depth experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone--couples, families or solo travelers! 10/10!
The best day!

From pick up to drop off we had the most amazing time! Juan and Josue were so accommodating and FUN! The ruins with Juan were gorgeous and he was so knowledgeable. The cave cenote was incredible followed by a great Mexican lunch complete with swings and and sombreros! Next, swimming with the turtles in Akumel Bay was spectacular!
Juan is the best photographer ( thanks to his sisters ☺️) and we are so grateful he was our guide for the day!
We will be back for sure!
