An awesome activity! The whole process was very smooth - the drivers and transportation were on time, and the guides were clearly trained and knowledgable, the whole experience felt very safe. The tour on the buggys was so fun - it had rained that morning, so the drive was extra muddy and added to the experience. It was really cool to drive through the jungle - and end up at one of the cenotes. Would recommend!

Amazing trip! The tour guides, Ricardo and Raymond, were energetic and knowledgeable and they made a genuine effort to make certain that everybody had a good time. I enjoyed the entire experience.

Pickup was on time and tour was informative with enough time to enjoy each stop. Only disappointment was Coba not allowing people to climb due to COVID-19, but that obviously wasn't their fault.

We had a blast! it was well planned, a lot of fun, and our tour guide Allan was awesome. Will definitely recommend it to all my friends.

This tour was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides and we had a great time.
