A recommendable and well-organized tour for people who don't want to be on the road all day: Within 6 hours you can visit Tulum and be back at the Cozumel ferry port at 2:30 p.m. or spend some time in Playa del Carmen (then you get the ferry ticket) for the return journey already in Playa del Carmen. In Tulum, the tour group will be accompanied by a local guide for 45 minutes and then there will be enough time to explore Tulum on your own. At the end of the tour, the van driver is already waiting for the guests with a bag of provisions and a cold drink. All in all: TOP! If you want to get to know Tulum in a nutshell, this is the place for you.

July 2022. Super fun snorkeling tour. Definitely good value for money. Duration about 4.5 hours and you will snorkel along 2 reefs where you will see a lot of fish/stingrays and if you are lucky a sea turtle. Then a beautiful part where you often see sea stars and then a stop at clear blue water with a tasty lunch where the rays swim in between. Definitely recommend. In addition, a nice guide who entertains you and knows how to show you all the beautiful things.
