This was the absolute best tour if you are interested in birds at all. My husband’s hobby is bird photography and this was probably his favorite part of our honeymoon. The driver, Axel, and the guide, Lope, were professional and very friendly! We ended up seeing 52 different bird species in the morning and were provided a delicious homemade breakfast. If we were back in the Cancún area I am sure we would do the tour again!

Amazing tour guides and both the underground Cenote and the K’aan Laguna were incredible! Speechless!

Best adrenaline park ever, the ziplines are cool and swimming in the cave was amazing.

Very well organized tour by EKINOX TOURS with excellent guide Carlos Moo.

This park is extreme and super fun. Totally worth it!
