We were picked up in Cancun, taken to a transfer station to connect with another bus leaving for Tulum. The buses were very nice and comfortable. Thew trip to Tulum is 1.5 hours, once there we had a walk through some of the market shops to get to the shuttle carriages that took us to the ruins (the cost was included in our tickets) I would recommend keeping an eye on the time as we didn't have much free time at Tulum after the guided tour and some people missed the shuttle back to the bus with one guy passing out on board from heatstroke after running all the way back!
Tulum itself was a nice enough scene not as brilliant as some of the other ruins, however the many iguanas and coati were fun to watch and lifted way overall score of Tulum.

Once back on the bus we headed for Xel- Ha, once there it was a bit confusing as to the extra things we could do and book. My friend and I head straight to the booking kiosk and booked a swim with the manatees and the photo package option. Around the park they have conveniently placed cameras which you can swipe to take images of you including in the water. This meant we didn't have to carry our cameras around with us. There are also lockers and many towel stations all over the venue.

The manatees were an absolute highlight, we also did the underwater walk which wasn't much better than the free snorkelling however the photos taken down there were also great.
We rode the bikes up along the jungle path, did some snorkelling and ate at the restaurants which was all inclusive including the drinks.

I would have loved another day at Xel-Ha as I really think there is too much for a half day to enjoy the full offering of the park.

I'd love to return with my kids but spend at least 2 days there. Beautiful fish to see and loads to do.
Cool experience

The tulum tour doesn’t give you a sandwich IN THE BUS. BRING SOME SNACKS.

It’s very hot with our mask.

They give you a bottle of water before the tulum tour. It was nice but OMG very humid with our mask

Having been to both Tulum and she'll Hall 30 years ago it was somewhat disappointing this time. Shell Hall has become such an amusement park that the waters were no longer clear and the giant parrot fish that it is famous for were nowhere to be found. As an avid snorkel and scuba diver I found it to be a disappointing experience. Perhaps it would be okay if you had never been in the water. Our guide at Tulum only spent about 15 minutes with us and then told us the rest of it was way too much time at one location.
Good

The highlight of this trip is the Cenote.. Tulum is interesting if you have a guide who is knowledgeable of the history of the Maya. MIne said that iI should take the pictures and then research them. The snorkeling is interesting specifically if you have young children, the water is not that deep and its safe to see big fish.
