Start with pickup at your hotel, then begin the trip to the Tulum Archeological Site, among the most dramatic ancient cities on the Yucatan Peninsula, with stone fortifications overlooking a white sand beach. Learn about the history and culture of the Mayan people, with free time to photograph the ruins before leaving the site.

Continue to the Mexican Caribbean in an air-conditioned vehicle. Get fitted with snorkeling gear, and slip into the water to swim over the coral reef (the fee for Conservation of the Marine Fauna is not included in this tour, and must be paid during the tour).

The afternoon is all about the natural world: follow your guide into a cave that’s bristling with stalagmites and stalactites, then take a walk through the jungle, listening to a forest chorus of tropical birds and animals. Visit the nearby Cenote Caracol to cool off with a swim in the fresh, limestone-filtered water.

This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Mariano was an incredible and knowledgeable tour guide, him and our driver Arturo were very kind the entire time. The cenote and snorkeling experiences practically turned out to be private tours because of the low attendance. I absolutely enjoyed the entire experience from beginning to end. It is definitely worth the money and I would recommend it to any of my friends or family.

We went on November 6, 2020 on the discovery combo Tulum ruins reaf snorkeling and cenote caves. OCEAN TOURS We’re great Mariano, Juan Pablo The photographer and our bus driver from Ensenada. Who made us feel at home. It was a great tour. Always love Tulum. The snorkeling was great for all my kids. they were even able to see a bunch of small jellyfish. I think the highlight of the tour was the cenote caves. Magical and beautiful. I’am Not a good swimmer. But it wasn’t a problem they gave me a life jacket. It was totally an awesome experience.As far as Covid goes there were masks on everyone and plenty of hand sanitizer. All in all a wonderful trip. We would do it again.

I truly enjoyed the trip. Tour guides were polite and knowledgable. Tulum, snorkeling and swimming in the Cenotes was just amazing. The meal included wasn't too great at all, honestly wasn't thrilled about the food, and by the time lunch was served we were pretty hungry. I would just suggest maybe bringing a few of your own snacks to help ward off the hunger. Overall, I would absolutely encourage people to go.

We booked this tour last minute and greatly enjoyed it. We had 8 people total on the tour which was the perfect size. Our tour guide, Christina, was awesome. Very knowledgeable, made sure to involve everyone, and very personable. I read the reviews before choosing this tour and wanted to call a few things out: 1) Bathrooms - very well spaced throughout the tour. Clean as well! 2) sunscreen - the email we got said biodegradable sunscreen allowed but when we got on the tour we were not allowed. My husband and I burned fairly badly Unfortunately. Wear a long sleeve shirt for the snorkeling piece!! 3) communication - communication for the day was great. We knew exactly what time we were getting picked up. Christina let us know at every step what to expect and how long we would have. During the tour she made sure we could all hear and be involved. Very helpful! 4) safety - we never once felt unsafe during the tour. The guides were fantastic and very attentive! 5) photographs - Tony was our photographer for the day. He was not there for Tulum but joined us for the entire snorkeling and half of the cenote. He got incredible pictures and only charged $40 for all of them!
