It is best to see what is possible before each trip in order to plan accordingly. In retrospect, we would have booked even more activities than 3 out of 10. But it was new to us and we are super satisfied with the experiences included! We especially recommend the jungle tour, which takes you through the mangroves in a speedboat, and the flow ride! Not a problem even for beginners like me, as Jonathan (great guy) explains everything and shows how it works

We had a great time! Only issue was the location I selected on the map was not the location we got picked up at but they made it right and after that we had no issues at all. We got to swim with turtles and fish - there were stingrays but the water was too murky to see them. The cenote was an amazing experience too!

The cenote was absolutely amazing. Have never seen anything comparable and have traveled a lot. The Cenote Xtun is a bit remote and apparently you can only get there with a tour. The turtles in Akumal were of course great too, maybe a bit too many people in the water at the same time.

It was wonderful ! The guides are very caring with us and thanks to them we were able to see 5 turtles and 2 rays (not to mention fish of all kinds and coral)

We play Very nice experience with our guide rachelle who was adorable and very professional. Thank you for this unforgettable day!
