I cannot express how great this tour was. We were the only group of 7 to explore a whole underground cenote. It was private. It was magical - the waters were clear, the journey very exciting and the guide (Taren) was so informative , funny, knowledgeable and right out awesome! The lunch was lovely in the jungle at the end of the walk. We were so happy with how we spent this morning, really really worth every penny and time. Thank you so much for a lovely experience.

Our guide Javier provided us with a terrific day of multiple experiences-floating through mangroves was amazing as were the trips to various cenotes and a zip-line trip across one of them. He also filled us in on a good deal of local history, language and experiences. All in all it was a highlight of our trip to Playa and I would highly recommend the experience.

Amazing experience! Santino was a very experienced guide and knew a lot about the Mayan ruins and culture, the nature, and everything else. We had delicious tacos from a local restaurant and crossed the lagoons by boat. We then jumped into the Mayan-made canals and drifted along the open-air lazy river. It was absolutely amazing!

Lili was an outstanding guide and Oscar a huge help. Very interesting combination of Mayan culture, history, jungle flora and fauna, a fun boat ride and a refreshing float down a crystal clear mangrove canal! Even included a delicious, healthy lunch. Highly recommended!

The highlight of our Tulum vacation! Santiago was incredibly knowledgeable and he and Daniel were both so accommodating and friendly. The food was great and the lazy River float was perfection. Amazing experience!
