1. Riviera Maya Full Day Tour: Tulum Ruins, Snorkeling & Cenote
Start your day with a stop at the world-famous ruins of Tulum, a pre-Columbian Mayan walled city which is right by the coast. Follow a guide around the site, enjoy the breathtaking views, and learn more about Mayan culture. The next stop is Playa Maya, the location of one of the largest coral reefs in the world and an ideal spot for snorkeling. Glide through the water and look out for colorful fish of all types, beautiful coral, stingrays, and perhaps even sea turtles. For the last stop of the day, you’ll be taken on a 20-minute drive through the jungle to a cenote. Once there, enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch of cochinita pibil (pulled pork), chicken, rice, beans, and tortillas (vegetarian options also available). Once you’re energized, see both ‘dry’ and ‘wet’ cenotes. Walk through the dry cenote and take in the incredible geological formations. At the wet cenote, jump in for a swim and a snorkeling session. After the cenotes, you’ll have time for a Cafe Olla (Mexican-style coffee) before returning to your hotel.
