What people are saying about Tulum

This trip was very well organized with a very nice guide named Martin. The bus driver drove great, you always felt in good hands. Since our 8 fellow travelers only spoke English, he didn't have to speak several languages at the same time. You could understand him very well.

Fantastic experience, we had a lot of fun, between Tulum and Coba there is a lot to see if you are passionate about the Mayan world, then if you are lucky enough to have Tino and Luis as your guides then you will love them

Tulum was really cool and the Cenotes were insanely beautiful! One was in a straight up cave! The other was half under a cabe and half out. Very cool day! Make sure to bring cash for tipping!
