Tour 4x1 starts at 8 am. First tour 10 am in the archaeological remains of Tulum 1 and a half hours (it's a bit fair to see everything) second cobà, here you have to add 70 pesos per person for bicycle rental so that you have time to go to the main monument. Here it was already 15:15 in the afternoon. At 4:00 p.m. lunch in the restaurant where the cenote is located, the buffet is great (nothing to do with other commercials) 30 minutes to swim in the cenote. At 7:30 p.m. we arrived at Playa del Carmen, and you have one hour to see Fifth Avenue. At 22:00 they left us at the hotel.

Perfect excursion. I detail the day: they picked us up at 9 in the morning at the hotel and we returned at 5 in the afternoon. First we went to the ruins of Tulum and then to Coba next. We finished around 2:00 p.m. and from there we went to eat at a Mayan reserve and then swim in a cenote. There were no dead times, which in my opinion is something to value, and the guides were more than charming, explaining everything with hairs and bones. Highly recommended.

It was a great trip. Not too crowded, friendly staff and cheap. Compared to the tour to providers at the stands, we were able to save around €50. The we had plenty of time for sightseeing. The only thing that was a pity was that Cobá was closed, but that's not their fault. An alternative was offered.
