Loved every minute of this tour. My only suggestion is to spend less time in the tourist shop at Tulum. We stopped for "bathroom break" and it turned into almost 30 minutes for shopping experience. Hence, less time was spent at the ruins. It felt rushed. The guide there though was very knowledgable about Mayan culture and civilization, so it made up for it. Swimming with turtles and cenote were absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this tour, just spend less time in the tourist trap gift shop.

the guide Paul , our driver and photographer were amazing. I left some belongings in the boat while snorkeling and the gentleman from the boat was nice of enough to go back and get my belongings for me. Overall great experience!

RAFFAAA. Rafaél was incredible. Could not have had a better guide. Incredible trip. Saw Turtles, stingray, squids and many fish. So worth it. The cenote was also incredible. Well worth the money.

It was a great and very varied trip. The guide (Caesar) was fantastic, the driver was great and the photographer took super nice pictures in the cenote and with the turtles! Again any time!

The best experience that I can had Love it from the begging to the end Beautiful and our guide super cool man
