Review summary

We turned out to be with the two of us and Saul was our guide. Funny, friendly and very knowledgable guy. We visited the archeological site of Coba and climed the highest building for a spectacular view. After that we visited several Maya communities and we felt very welcome. We experienced an interesting Maya ceremonie, spotted spider and howler monkeys, went down the zipline over a cenote and canoed for a while. No rush whatsoever. The highlight was a jump in a gorgeous cenote filled with turtles, carfish in a cave packed with swallows and bats! The food at the final Maya family was delicious and making the tortilla was a good laugh. We got more than we expected and it is good to know that also the Maya communities truly benefit from our visit (fare share). Highly recommended tour: ask for Saul!
