Full description
Experience the attractions of Tulum away from the regular tourist crowds by getting to it early on in the day. After hotel pickup, you'll arrive at your first stop of the day at 8:00 AM, the archaeological site of Tulum, which you'll explore with a certified guide. Enjoy a peaceful early morning as you take in the amazing landscape of the ancient Mayan temples of the last postclassic period. Built next to the Caribbean Sea on a natural cliff, you’ll also get beautiful views of Quintana Roo.  

Then, head to a gorgeous natural cenote, the jewel of the Mayan Riviera. Jump into its crystal-clear waters with some snorkeling equipment and explore this natural wonder. Get amazing underwater views of the marine life and soar through the clear water, almost like you’re flying. Head next to a lagoon where you can again take a refreshing splash in the water, as well as take some Instagram-worthy photos.  

Finally, end your morning with lunch in a traditional Mexican restaurant in Tulum, followed by free time to explore and take more pictures in downtown Tulum.
