What people are saying about Riviera Maya

Ok so at first it might seem sketch but its not! This is actually called Aventuras Mayas and you get to their HQ and their vans take you to their park thats near tulum. Once there they will decide what activity you do first based on availability. You will be with the same group from the van throughout the whole experience so make friends! Every activity you do, you do with your guide and the group so if its your first time doing anything they will assist. We had Paola and she was so kind and incredibly knowledgable. If you have a go pro, bring it! or if not, use a waterproof case you can hang around your neck and that is able to go with you from activity to activity otherwise leave it in the lockers (There are free lockers for you to leave your things in during each activity). However they take pictures of you throughout that you can buy at the end! We had a blast and would definitely do again!

Wonderful tour. Sammy the guide and his team Alexis and Ruth were excellent. Take a mask as it is required for entry (if not 20 pesos to buy), Also would recommend packing some snacks as the drive is over 3 hours and you will be hungry by the time you get there. You are not allowed to take food into Chichen Itza site but have the option of buying before or after the tour and there is a snack bar inside. The buffet at the Cenote was delicious and the Cenote swimming experience itself was the most amazing/enjoy part for the kids. Would highly recommend this tour.

The experience as a whole was amazing Our guide Ulyses was amazing! His interpretation skills were perfect. He was able to switch between english and spanish in a really amazing way. Very funny and entertaining, he was providing really important information. The tour to Chichen Itza, the cenote, linch and vallaloid was perfect! It’s worth every penny!

The guide knows in depth the history of the towns of the region and the ruins of Tulum; hotel pick-up was at the agreed time; the two cenotes that we visited are beautiful and there were not many people and in the end the food is delicious.

Great, easy going. No stress, awesome guides. Great food a great way for a first timer like us
