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.

  • "Keep in mind that the though the tour itself was 6 hours, transportation to and from added another couple hours." See review

Great First Activity Full tour of Tulum.
Amanda_F

It was an AMAZING experience. I never been on a tour where everyone got along and I felt like I could hang with EVERYONE! We ended up meeting up as a group after this Tour and hanging out the whole time in Tulum. Which was great because I was a solo traveler. I thought it would be just going over a few spots but we were all in the cenotes, swimming, hiking, jumping. We spend a good time at the reefs and the ruins. Great information with great picture service! The photographer was SoooooOooOoooOo good! He took amazing pictures. So if you forget your camera, don’t worry, he captures the whole experience, even candid pictures. Loved the whole trip experience. Do this trip as a first starter trip because they give you tips, tricks, and advice on what to do for the rest of your trip.

The day was outstanding from beginning to end. We were picked up in a very comfortable van and given snacks for the day. Tulum was magical and the tour guide informative. We weren't able to swim in the ocean due to it being murky because of the rain, but swim in a beautiful lagoon. Next stop was a Cenote and caves. Breathtaking. Fabulous day and well worth it. Highly recommend.

This was the best excursion we’ve ever been on! So much fun in one day. The sea was choppy during snorkeling but Pepe the guide was so knowledgeable and had animo/passion about the caves and they truly were fascinating. A photographer came with us and offered very reasonable photos of the experience. Definitely a must do!!

Do you want a no hassle, taste a little of everything tour? Stop looking, book! Maria was our guide, Diego our photographer & Jorge our driver: all three were amazing! While sure, it would have been nice to have a little more time at the ruins & snorkeling, it didn’t feel cut too short with all the activities combined. The cenotes and lunch alone are worth it! Travel to and from was seamless and we felt in very good hands. What are you waiting for? Go have fun!

Best tour ever. It was very well organized from start to finish. Tulum was beautiful but the highlight of our tour was going to a private under water cave (Cenote). I would highly recommend this tour.

Super great tour with a great guide. The Snorkel was pretty intense with the coral very close to the surface. The Cenote was the highlight of the day for sure! Ruins were interesting, and it felt like just the right amount of time doing each activity. It was a lot of driving but well worth it.
