Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 124 reviews

One of the best excursions in Mexico. Not touristy. Small group. Great hidden cenote and the Mayan village was our absolute highlight. You can help the locals by buying pre-packaged bags for $5 and then delivering them in person. Please also buy sweets for the kids in the shop that is everywhere on the side of the road. It was really fantastically beautiful and the guides are also very cool. The buggies drive very well and it goes deep through the jungle far away from all tourist attractions. Just great to get to know this side of Mexico.

Smooth and organised pick up and drop off at xplor. Xplor itself is amazing. The different attractions are all incredible and there was a delicious all inclusive buffet and drinks. Good facilities. No need to carry anything around as lockers are available. Make sure you have Reef friendly sun cream as they do ask for this and a good pair of water shoes.

15min transfer from Ferry Pier Playa del Carmen, group of 14 pax (we were the last ones). Very motivated guide in the park, great tour in the jungle park, also suitable for children. Very detailed introduction. Easy tour packed with activities. Photos at the end can be bought for around 59 dollars (good image quality). Gladly again!

A great time thanks to our guides who made us discover the region!

Amazing! We had the best time. Our guides were so much fun.
