  • From Cancún: Coba, Cenote, Tulum and Playa del Carmen Tour

    4. From Cancún: Coba, Cenote, Tulum and Playa del Carmen Tour

    In this tour you’ll visit four incredible places. Begin with Tulum, the old Mayan city built on the seashore where you can appreciate its vestiges like El Castillo, El Templo de Los Frescos and its beautiful white sand beach. Then discover Cobá, a hidden Mayan town with the tallest pyramid in the Yucatán Peninsula, that you can climb to admire the jungle that surrounds you. Afterwards head to Cenote La Gloria, an impressive natural basement filled with crystalline water where you can swim. Visit Playa del Carmen, the vibrant city of the Caribbean perfect for shopping. From your hotel or meeting point, you will be taken to the departure center from where your adventure begins to Tulum, Cobá, Cenote and Playa del Carmen. This tour includes safe transportation, a certified guide, and a buffet lunch.

    The tour guides really make or break the tour! And in this trip they MADE IT! The guides, especially Raymundo was exceptional: he explained everything in the scorching heat giving us a complete understanding of the history, culture and life of the places we were visiting. The other guides with him helped keep track of the people and offered water for free to make sure we were all well hydrated: it showed great care! We spent the morning in Tulum, we then went to Coba and experienced the park on an enjoyable bike ride! The site is very large and you can cover more ground on bike than by foot (if you dont like to bike (rental 60 pesos), they have little wagons where someone will bike you around for a little more money) but it beats walking in the heat. This fee is on you-bring pesos. After Coba, they took us to a cenote but it didnt have that cavern feel, and we hit traffic on the way to Playa Del Carmen at the end of the day, so we only had an hour to powerwalk the touristy district.

    Great time & great experience, will definitely be back again. Only complaint is the ATV were slower than expected and the course for them was VERY narrow at times. Jet Ski's were phenomenal! Guides for both tours were great.

What people are saying about Playa del Carmen

The greatest and most Authentic food tour I’ve ever been on. Really enjoyed our guide, he was an amazing person and very knowledgeable. This is more than worth it! Bring a backpack though, so you don’t have to hold things during your walk

Amazing trip! The tour guides, Ricardo and Raymond, were energetic and knowledgeable and they made a genuine effort to make certain that everybody had a good time. I enjoyed the entire experience.

Eddy knows all the places where the different birds hide themselves. Thank you for this beautiful birding morning.

Crew was very helpful and entertaining. Pictures were nice but too expensive like most of these excursions.
