Cenote & Mayan Village Tour, Getting from hotel to the activity, lesson in lots of waiting & capacity to accept or tolerate delay! driver tasked picking up at a few locations.. Buggy ride!! Fun with a great working machines, little beat up but did it expect it to be new!! Staff fun, accommodating, knowledgeable and very helpful!! Cenote, great location, easy to walk to and the water is fantastic to swim in!! Truly life changing activity! Mayan Village Tour was eye opening and great life lesson of an interesting culture and way of life. Cenote & Mayan Village Tour and Buggy experience feels very day by day, based on the buggy breakdowns, crew phone calls on pull-overs and the every changing environments we drove in. Believe staff has to change things up daily on the fly! Nothing seamed planned!!! What we experienced is nothing like the I read about!! Was the experience fun? Yes. just be ready for anything to happen and go with the flow!!

This tour is highly recommended! It was incredibly fun to drive a buggy through the jungle. The visit to the Mayan village was full of impressions. The people there are very friendly and polite. Locally, one would have the opportunity to support the people with a voluntary food donation, since they live under the poorest conditions.

One of the best excursions in Mexico. Not touristy. Small group. Great hidden cenote and the Mayan village was our absolute highlight. You can help the locals by buying pre-packaged bags for $5 and then delivering them in person. Please also buy sweets for the kids in the shop that is everywhere on the side of the road. It was really fantastically beautiful and the guides are also very cool. The buggies drive very well and it goes deep through the jungle far away from all tourist attractions. Just great to get to know this side of Mexico.
