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.

AMAZING!

The tour guide Diana was GREAT! It was the best cenote tour we did the whole trip and we did 4. The snorkel tour was also good, we went at a low time in the day so there wasn't many people there which made it good. The Tulum tour could have been a little better, but no fault to the tour staff. The tour guide we had did not like answering questions, but again not Diana's fault it was Tulum's tour guide.

The entirety of the 3 in 1 Tulum, Snorkeling, and Cenote tour was outstanding! The hotel pickup service was punctual and clean, and we were greeted by our professional and knowledgeable tour guide. The guided tour of the Mayan ruins at Tulum was a unique and rewarding experience followed by a snack and snorkeling in a lagoon that was a welcome cool off from the sun. After snorkeling the tour moved into the jungle and to a remote Cenote that can only be described as breathtaking. Lunch was provided prior to exploring the underground river and was some of the best food that we had in Mexico. The professional photographer that was attached to the group took excellent photos of each event and provided them at a fair price. I absolutely recommend this tour and would do it again!

Our guide Joaquin was wonderful. Friendly, funny, communicative. The driver was professional, safe, had a spotless van, and arrived on time. Tulum ruins are historically interesting and the ocean views from the cliffs are world class. The ocean was rough so we snorkeled in a freshwater lagoon near the ocean. The fish were colorful and numerous and the water was clear. It was a pleasant snorkeling experience. The walking and swimming through the cenote cave was the highlight. It was geologically interesting and physically beautiful. And the experience of swimming through the caves was very fun. We had a family of four, two couples including us, and a single person in our tour. Everyone had a great time!

Awesome tour! After reading so many amazing reviews, we booked this adventure for my birthday day! The guide (Pepe BB) and driver were AMAZINNG! Pepe’s English was very impressive and he explained a lot of history about Tulum. We weren’t able to do the reef snorkeling due to large waves that day so we instead went to Akumal bay which is beautiful. They provided water and a snack bag in the van for us between destinations. We then drove down a long bumpy road and ate authentic Mexican tacos and empanadas which was super delicious! The cave cenote is privately owned and only a select few tour companies have access to it. Since it’s so private, you get a real unique and incredible experience. The cave was beautiful and the water was refreshing. It was definitely my favorite part of the day! My brother lost his Apple Watch in the cave when we did a little cliff jumping inside it. Pepe BB was so kind and went back in with my brother, husband and snorkel gear and they found it! All our stuff was safe in the van during each excursion. We were back in our hotel in Cancun by 5:30pm which was nice for us! I highly recommend this tour!
