Tulum archaeological zone

We’ll visit the most famous Mayan city of the Caribbean, that means ‘wall’ and delimits the city by north, south and west. On east there is the Caribbean, from where the first Europeans were impressed to see the city while navigating in this turquoise color waters.

We’ll cross the wall to the archaeological zone, and from the entrance, we’ll see this beautiful city built over a cliff in where stand out the main avenues, palaces, temples and mainly, the castle, that is the biggest edifice just before an exit to the Caribbean.

We’ll know the importance of this city as a marine and land trade city. We’ll tell you about the importance and secrets of this civilization, while you delight with its wonderful sea views and colors.

Snorkel in reef barrier

After the walk in the hot archaeological zone of Tulum, we will take a boat that will bring us to the reef zone of the Mexican Caribbean, the second biggest in the world. There, our guide will give us all the necessary equipment to snorkel and see closer this extraordinary aquatic world.

Guided by an expert, we will delight with the coral and fishes in all sizes and colors. This is an ecosystem rich in fishes, stingrays and marine turtles we can see depend on which season we are. With no doubt, it will be an incredible scenario to take pictures from your visit to the Mexican Caribbean.

In this tour you have to chose one of the following cenotes, Azul or Carcol.

Cenote Azul

One of the most visited cenotes in Quintana Roo. An enormous sweet and fresh water cenote, open type, that is like a natural swimming pool with little fishes, low deep pools for all family members and perfect areas to swim, jump and snorkeling to admire the beautiful sea fauna. If you stay quiet, you can see and feel a little shoal. A very funny sensation!

The tour ends taking you back to your hotel.

Cenote Caracol

Miles inside the jungle, far away from all urban noise, there is the famous semi open cenote Caracol with a beautiful grotto and footpath.

We recommend you first walk through the footpath under ground’s level and watch the vegetation, stalactites and stalagmites, and with a little luck, see multicolor birds, specially the toh. Visiting this grotto, in some moments, let us see beautiful landscapes and listen sounds from another world. And with another piece of luck, we can see funny monkeys in the jungle.

In the main cenote, apart from swimming pleasantly, there are beautiful caverns at the bottom, some of them a little hidden, where you can swim too.

The tour ends taking you back to your hotel.
