Full description
Explore the archaeological ruins of Tulum with an experienced guide, plunge into a refreshing cenote hidden by the jungle canopy, and check out the hip shops and stylish boutiques in Playa del Carmen on this full-day excursion. After getting picked up at your hotel, cruise out to the site of Tulum's weather-worn ruins, perched above the sandy shores of the Caribbean. Let your guide take care of the admission fees and head inside, where you can learn about the rise and fall of the ancient Maya civilization. Stroll between temples, palaces, and fortresses that have stood for hundreds of years. Slip down to the beach for some leisure time on the sand, and then continue on to the Mariposa cenote, where dappled sunlight illuminates a freshwater pool in the middle of the jungle. Take a dip to cool off, enjoy a tasty bufette on site, and then take a ride to wrap up your day among the bustling activity of Playa del Carmen.

Both Get Our Guide and EKINOX TOURS get 5/5 stars. Get Our Guide had many communications with me to ensure our pick up location and time is clear and confirmed with vendor. The tour was absolutely worth the money and time. Pick up was on time. Mario, our tour guide, gave instructions and was very passionate about the Mayan culture and it’s people. We had the BEST time at the cenote (wish it was longer). Playa del Carmen was charming. Would definitely recommend Ekinox Tours and will definitely use them again next time I am in the Yucatán!

Our July 13, 2022 tour set a very high bar for comparing against every other tour experience. Ekinox was the tour provider and Alexis Pavia was the primary tour guide, assisted by Miguel and driver Omar. Alexis demonstrated a passion for teaching us about the Mayan culture and ancestry while making it fun and entertaining throughout the entire journey to and from the Tulum Ceremonial Center (I call him the Mayan Billy Crystal). The meal we received was delicious and seemed much more authentic than what we experienced through a different service provider. The demonstration of making chocolate, the Mayan shaman purification rituals, and the visit to the Cenotes all combined to make this a fantastic experience. Alexis and Ekinox combined to create our most memorable and enjoyable Mayan tour experience. Everyone else should learn from them. Five stars is not enough!

Realmente disfrutamos visitar Tulum y conocer la historia maya. Los guías son muy competentes y divertidos. Los cenotes, y Playa del Carmen fueron agradables visitas, siendo la ceremonia maya un poco extensa, atenta a la hora en que ya se está un poco cansada y hambrienta. Recomendamos el recorrido con esta pequeña sugerencia. Sara Venade e Família
