Such a fun day!

This was an amazing day! Alex the tour guide and Rodrigo the driver were so fun and made the trip! It was great to get to Tulum early before the crowds and Alex was so knowledgeable of the history and architecture. The Cenotes were beautiful and probably my favorite part of the trip. Alex made sure we were comfortable with our snorkeling gear and swam with us to point different things out. Swimming with the Turtles was awesome too and again Alex made sure we were safe and having fun. The Mayan lunch was also delicious! Would highly recommend this company and Alex and Rodrigo!
Best Day in Tulum and Akumal Bay

We had the best day! Everything was pre-arranged for us and timed perfectly. Lunch was fantastic! Loved that we got to pick the cenote that was best for our family.
Absolutely amazing tour with an incredible company!

The first thing that impressed me with Absolute Adventure Mexico was the speed and quality of the information and guidance I received when trying to select a tour. Nothing pushy, just clear honest feedback and suggestions tailored to the needs of my family.

Pricing was clear and I only needed to pay a deposit to secure our tour. I then received detailed information confirming our itinerary, pickup time and details clarifying what we would need to bring on the day.

On the morning of the tour one of my children was feeling extreme anxiety and was unable to leave the hotel room. We were shown incredible understanding and the guide was able to adjust things so that they could swing back via our hotel after the first two activities so that my wife and youngest child could join the final activity, the turtle snorkeling, which they enjoyed immensely thanks to the flexibility and understanding of Absolute Adventure Mexico. Obviously, something like this is a unique situation and I did not expect such understanding so this was very much appreciated by us all!

The tour started at the Tulum ruins where Juan's pre arrival preparations ensured we were literally the first through the gate after a short wait at the entrance. His knowledge of the history of the Mayan's was shared with myself and my daughters in a very personable way that was both interesting and educational. Juan pointed out the best places to take pictures and acted as personal photographer to give us many family photos. This set us up well for the next part of the day, the Cenote snorkeling.

After booking the tour Absolute Adventure Mexico offered us several options of Cenote depending on your level of experience. Some open, some underground, different levels of complexity etc. We selected Taak Bi Ha which was an underground Cenote that was suitable for beginners. I'm not a strong swimmer, unlike my children, and this suited me well. Absolute Adventure Mexico provided us with snorkels and live jackets that really helped to give us a confident and enjoyable experience. Taak Bi Ha is set in a limestone cavern of varying depths but mainly relatively shallow. Juan again pointed out all the best views including underwater tunnels of the river system. He also turned photographer again to secure our memories digitally.

After a short drive for lunch at a nearby restaurant, that was included in our tour fee, we headed out to the beach, collecting the rest of my family on the way, where we were introduced to our specialist guide for the sea turtle swim. I elected not to venture out to sea for the swim so Juan and I waited in a nearby bar/restaurant while my wife and children enjoyed the turtle swim where they saw many turtles plus Rays and plentiful fish around the coal reef.

Aside the tour itself, I enjoyed chatting with Juan whilst we waited the return of the others sharing stories about our families and history before the rest returned to tell us excitedly about their swim.

Finally it was time to return to our hotel, at the Bahia Principe, a short drive away.

After many thanks and goodbyes it was time for us to reflect on a wonderful experience made all the more special by Absolute Adventure Mexico.

We cannot thank them enough and cannot recommend them highly enough. If you're unsure whether to book a tour or you're unsure who to book with I'd 100% recommend Absolute Adventure Mexico. They were amazing!
Fun and personal tour of Tulum & Cenote!

The entire day was very smooth and fun. Our tour guide, Alex García was very informative and entertaining throughout the entire trip. He also gave us our own time and space to enjoy what we were doing.

Relaxing car journey from our driver Rodrigo aswell.

Amazing experience all round and Alex García made the experience much easier and very entertaining.
