  • English and Spanish
  • 8 hours
  • Hotel pick up

On this trip to Tulum, you'll explore some of the most impressive Mayan ruins and go snorkelling in the Caribbean Sea and an incredible cenote. A unique experience is waiting for you!

Tulum Ruins & Cenote Snorkelling Tour

We'll pick you up from your hotel first thing in the morning and we'll make our way to Tulum, a town situated on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, known for its incredible archaeological site with one of the best-conserved examples of Mayan architecture.

When we reach this picturesque spot, you'll be able to enjoy a 45-minute guided tour of the Mayan ruins, which have the incredible backdrop of a Caribbean beach. You won't be able to stop taking photos! Don't worry, you'll also have some free time to explore at your leisure.

Next, we'll make a stop and go snorkelling in the Caribbean Sea, with the archaeological site just behind us. But this isn't the only chance you'll have to jump in the water, as next we'll go to Cenote Caracol. A cenote is a natural pit with an underground water system that is especially associated to this area of Mexico. Considered by the Mayas as a sacred place, here, you'll be to go snorkelling once again, learning about what is hidden below the waters.

After this once-in-a-lifetime snorkelling experience, 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.

Finally, we'll make our way back to your hotel at around 4 pm.
