Full description
The excursion begins with a pick-up service between 07:00-08:05 AM from the lobby of your hotel in Cancun or Mayan Riviera. Upon arrival at Tulum, head directly to the world-famous archaeological site for a 1.5 hour visit and have the opportunity to explore it on your own! A certified guide will introduce you to the history and mysteries of the great Mayan civilization that once developed their culture and tribute to the world’s historical legacy.  Your guide will explain the significance of all the historical sites of Tulum - the Mayan word for wall - is indeed a walled fortress. The site has impressive cliffs overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Discover one of the most beautiful archaeological sites in the world and the only site in the Mayan Riviera located right by the coastline, that once was a port and a shelter to the coast Mayans in the post classical period.  After Tulum visit, the adventure continues in Tankah park, nestled in virgin jungle, encompassing four distinct Cenotes, those “Breathing Holes” of the world's largest underground river system that is found beneath the surface of the Yucatan Peninsula. The visit begins with an offering of fresh fruits of the season. On to the first “Cenote Cueva”, accessible through a natural jungle trail, you may enjoy a diving platform and venture to ride in a Zip Line from which you may jump into the refreshing waters. “Cenote Piraña”, which is semi covered, allows sunlight to bathe its waters. Admire and discover rock formations of stalactites. The third Cenote, one so large that you can navigate in a canoe and cross by zip-line over its waters. The visit to the last Cenote is sure to be a relaxing one. Enjoy a banquet of local delicacies, including well know Mexican delights as handmade tortillas and guacamole, chicken “Pibil”, a Yucatecan traditional concoction. Your visit will be complete once you immerse yourself in the Mayan Village of Tankah, where you will meet with the local Maya people that call Tankah their home.

Beautiful, varied mix of Mayan history and natural beauty

For us, Tulum is one of the most beautiful Mayan sites, which of course is also due to the sensational location directly on the sea. The subsequent visit to the national park makes it a successful, varied mix for everyone for whom a whole day of historical facts, especially in the searing heat, is too much. The ZIP lines are great and fun (even my parents, 70 +77 years old, dared to do it), the cenotes are very idyllic. The time windows were appropriate and sufficient. A visit to the Mayan village including lunch should not be "overrated". The place is prepared to cater to large groups of tourists; you do not have the feeling of access and impressive insights into a "foreign" culture. The transport by minibus was ok, but the microphone did not work properly, so fluent and understandable explanations were not always possible. Since it is a Grayline-owned bus, a quick remedy / repair would be called for. Overall a great day!

Carlos Solis made the tour authentic, fun and meaningful.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. And I would highly recommend it to everyone! Our guide Carlos Solis was authentic and professional. His knowledge of Tulum was inspiring. His Mayan background made the stories poignant. Then at the Ecological Park we had fun that exceeded my expectations. As the name implies, it is a natural preserve. So it was the real deal. There were many cenotes and a beautiful small lake where we zip lined through natures beauty. And lunch was prepared by some of the Mayan people living in the park. You could not ask for a more authentic (non commercial) tour. Thanks to our driver Oscar whose quiet and steady driving got us home safely. And thank you to Carlos. It was an honor to meet you.

A nice trip ... But ...

The trip was good. Tulum was very beautiful! Then we went to Tankah to zip line and swim in the cenotes. Then eat and that's it ... Nothing from the rope bridge or a visit to the Mayan village ... As it was in the description ... We found it a shame personally ...
