An incredible and unforgettable experience. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to experience something different and special. Our guide Gonzalo was very kind and took us to the best corners. We started by visiting the reef and saw different types of fish. And after that visit the adventure began… we began to interact with large manta rays and then two turtles visited us. It was incredible!! We still continue with the emotion of the moment. The captain and deckhand were very helpful and made the experience a dream. After this great experience, we visited three cenotes and swam in two of them, always accompanied by Gonzalo, who took some incredible photos of us. The cenotes were very different: in one of them the bottom was a large cave that was impressive. The open had a beautiful marine fauna and flora. During the trip the driver was also very helpful: he offered us drinks and snacks and left us a charger for our camera. They were also very punctual. 100% recommended!!

Very nice was fun

Picked up punctually from the hotel but only at the lecture at 3pm. Otherwise everything went well. Unfortunately we had a lot of disturbances so the snorkeling required a lot of strength and concentration. The cenotes were very interesting and great for swimming and snorkeling. Something completely different. However, it is a victim of mosquitos that there are plenty of long shirts and pants. Driver and Collin were very good and very friendly. Unfortunately I only saw 1 turtle but better than none. As for the reef, please do not expect anything special, especially if you have been to Egypt or the Maldives, etc. Otherwise highly recommended.

Very nice excursion. We have seen turtles and a very large ray during snorkeling in the coral reef near Tulum. Afterwards we sailed by boat past the ancient Maya city, we had a nice view of a temple. Then we went to see cinotes and also snorkeled in them. I was a bit skeptical about this beforehand, but it was really beautiful.
