Beautiful sunset!

We had really bad wind due to the approaching storms, so the kayak was difficult. However the tour guides were great/fun and really made sure to get a lot of pictures for our memories. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous and so worth the struggle.

this was our first time in Tulum and definitely not the last. we had the pleasure of going out snorkeling and kayaking with Ishmael and he was AmAZING. he was so knowledgeable and so kind. the fruit and tamales for lunch were among the best we had ever had! i would highly recommend this trip for anyone wanting to learn more about the Eco system of Tulum and Mexico.

Do it! Awesome adventure, got to see a crocodile up close, fish and lots of birds

Ishmael and Richard were awesome guides. Their English is really good and they care about the environment and the flora and fauna. We started off in a cenote where the visibility wasn’t great because of the algae but it was still relaxing to snorkel through it. And we came across a crocodile in the brush and some schools of fish by the mangroves. My boyfriend got to dive into the water from a platform so that was fun! Then we kayaked around sunset to where a bunch of birds nest. Omg, we kayaked for 6km and saw so many species of birds. It was awesome as was the sky turning beautiful shades of orange, pink, purple and bluish gray. And we had this incredible full moon that lit to right above where our dock was. It was pretty spectacular. It’s an awesome workout but if you’re too lazy/hungover/not physically in the best shape, I’m sure to can get someone else to kayak for you as you soak up the surroundings. But we kayaked on our own... slept like a baby.
