Tulum Ruins & Cenote Snorkelling Tour

  • English and Spanish
  • 8 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Explore an ancient Mayan city on the shores of the Caribbean Sea and snorkel in a sacred cenote. Can you think of a better day trip from Cancun?

Tulum Ruins & Cenote Snorkelling Tour

After picking you up from your hotel first thing in the morning, we'll make our way to an archaeological site with one of the best-conserved examples of Mayan architecture: Tulum. Here, you'll be able to enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of the ruins, and you'll also have some free time to explore at your leisure.

Next, with the backdrop of the Mayan ruins behind us, we'll go snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.

We'll then continue our trip, heading to Cenote Caracol. A cenote is a natural pit with an underground water system that is especially associated to this area of Mexico. Did you know what the Mayas thought that these cenotes were sacred? You'll be able to jump in and snorkel once again, discovering the secrets that lie below the waters.

After this adventure, you'll be able to enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch: sopa de lima soup to start, followed by pibil-style chicken with rice and beans, all served with homemade tortillas and café de olla, a spiced coffee drink.

At the end of the day, we'll make our way back to your hotel at around 4 pm.
