A realy great trip. I had the Cichen Itza trip day tour also with cenote swimming the week before. But the marvelous location of Tulum beach side and those of Coba in the jungle was a bit better, though different from cichen Iza. The cenote was more a kind of Family operated pool, which was fine, because it was not crowded by too many tourists. Some complained about the simple Food, but it was fine for me.
A really good recommendation for a day trip from Cancun
If your in Cancun, you need to do this! ATV's were amazing, zip lining through the jungle and the cenote is cool and refreshing. The snorkeling is like watching the discovery channel except you can touch everything. And best off all were all the guides, they all told jokes, and made the whole trip beyond expectation!
Overall excellent experience and highly recommended. Juan Carlos was our driver and guide. Driver and van were on time to hotel pickup. Van was clean and comfortable. There were plenty of drinks, including beer. Breakfast was a ham/cheese sandwich, granola bar, apple, and juice box. Juan Carlos gave an excellent tour and answered questions knowledgeably. It was great to get to the site early, when there weren't as many people and it wasn't as hot. We did not feel rushed. Had time to take photos. Buffet lunch at Mayaland had large variety of foods, including Mayan/Mexican and international foods. Alcoholic beverages were included. Got back to Cancun around 3:30pm.
Absolutely fantastic, the show, location and attention by the staff was excellent and unlike the holiday tour operators like Thomson, transportation to and from the event is included in the price. As we were located in Cancun we were picked up in a 52 seater coach from the Playa La Isla shopping complex Liverpool, which was only a 22 pesos for 2 people local bus ride from our hotel. At the event we did however meet another British couple who having booked through the their tour operator had had to pay 1,500 pesos in a taxi one way approx 60 each way. Would highly recommend anyone going to Mexico to see this show.

This tour was arranged through Amigotours, with our English speaking Archaeologist Marco, he opened our minds to what the Mayan people had managed to achieve especially their mathematics and understanding of the universe especially the way the year was broken up into astrological events. Getting to the site early was definitely a bonus as it was so easy to move around and take in the sure scale of the ruins. My only criticisms on the tour, were we hadn't been informed that it was a 3 and a half hour drive to the site from Cancun, making it 7 hours on a coach. This was was further compounded by an additional half hour lay over in Puerto Cancun awaiting a feeder bus, which is something Amigo tours need to address to be a bit more slicker.
Whenever we go abroad on holiday, we do try to go on a Catamaran trip, however this time I had booked the day out on the trimaran Lupito from seeing the promotional video. Initially my wife felt disappointed by the small size of the vessel, however having put to sea and noting the smaller number onboard and that it was not a booze fueled trip sat back and relaxed into our day, don't get me wrong the drink flowed as much as you wanted. Having stopped for snorkelling we then stopped off on Isla Muyeres from lunch, although we took part in photographic session with a nurse shark in hind sight we realised how cruel this was due to the small pen in which the shark was housed. After lunch we then got back on the boat and travelled along the coast to the main town. Having spent nearly 2 hours we then boarded the boat back to Cancun. The staff on the Lupito were fantastic, not only providing the entertainment they were excellent guides. If you don't want a boat trip mobbed with booze fueled people this is a definite trip to do

What a great day! Pick up from hotel went very smoothly, comfortable and very clean bus transportation to Tulum. Extremely knowledgeable and entertaining English and Spanish speaking guide at Tulum. The afternoon at Xel-Ha was fantastic. A great place for adults and kids alike. Great facilities, but still very eco-friendly and natural. Highly recommend this day trip to anyone staying in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area.
Freddy is the best tour guild in Cancun. The photographer took the amazing picture. Only 30 for all photos on stick. We went 10 miles on a tiny road to visit 2 cenotes at one location. Freddy called it Mayan massage because the road was so bumpy. Each cenotes, one dry, one wet, gave us different feelings. You have to be there to feel it. Really worth it. Lunch was served in a hut in the middle of the jungle.
I was picked up promptly on both trips. Jorge was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. On the ride back to the airport, he even offered to make a stop wherever I wanted and we stopped at the Cancun sign for a picture. Both trips, I was the only passenger so it felt like a private transfer.

This tour was better than we had hoped for! Went with my daughter and her boyfriend and our french tour guide from EcoTours could not have been more helpful, enthusiastic, informative or kind. Clare did everything possible to ensure everyone not only enjoyed the experience, but had a GoPro camera to ensure we all had photographic and video memories available for a very reasonable fee to remember and share with family and friends. We went on this trip on July 29, 2016. Yes, it is a long day - we traveled from our hotel in Akumal to north of Cancun by minibus, then well over an hour by small boat to find the whale sharks. And yes, we were extremely fortunate to see and swim with many whale sharks and even manta rays. And yes, I would advise taking sea sickness tablets the night before, and the morning of the trip if you suffer. The ocean was quite rough the day we went, and the time waiting on the surface in between dives even began to get to me after taking these precautions! However, no one on our boat was sick, and we were fortunate to have the most exhilarating experience swimming with the whale sharks, with people who respect the ocean wildlife, with an amazing boat captain and mate, who managed to steer their way safely between many, many whale sharks, and quite a few snorkelers and who were determined to help us make the most of this opportunity. The only things I would change are a I would have booked this tour earlier in our trip, because my husband became ill from food/water and was unable to join us, and b I would have rented the wetsuit offered instead of wearing a life jacket, which was restrictive and a bit annoying for a reasonably strong swimmer and PADI-certified diver. But this was a fantastic experience - quite awe-inspiring and humbling to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.
Amazing personal tour with a very informative guid.. just driving the hummer through cancun was an experience in it and #39;s self.. the zoo is like nothing back in the uk and we had the cenote pretty much to ourselves :) the fish burrito is amazing aswell
We were picked up at our hotel lobby right on time and got into an air conditioned van. Our tour guide, Carlos Dominguez, told us we were the only 2 people on the tour. We were taken to the El Meco Mayan Ruins and Carlos told us the history of the area. We were taken all over the Cancun area, through the real city of Cancun where the residents live and work. He told us about the area, the customs, and the day-to-day struggles the people go through. Carlos then took us to the real Mercado 28, which is about 4 blocks in size and told us that many of the tour buses take tourists to Plaza 28 which is a large pink building but is not the true marketplace. We saw Mercado 23 where all the fresh produce, seafood, and meats are sold. After seeing all the traditional sites, Carlos escorted us to an American Mall which was a huge 3 story mall like we have here in the US. He gave us plenty of time to shop and look around before taking us to the Tequilla Museum. There were learned how tequilla is made and how to tell the good tequilla from the lesser quality tequilla. We sampled some and then shopped among the 400 kinds of tequilla they had for sale. Lastly, we went to the Cancun sign and Carlos took pictures of us before bringing us back to our hotel. It was a full and wonderfully informative day. Highly recommend this tour. Great value too!
This is flat-out the best excursion I have ever had in Cancun. The guides were extremely nice and knowledgeable. They kept the boat ride entertaining and fun. The reef where you snorkel is out of this world. Beautiful plants and marine life everywhere. Saw all kinds of fish, some turtles and a sting ray. It was amazing. After 20 minutes or so you head to the Island where the drinks and food start flowing. The island is beautiful. Due to the low number of people allowed on it, its not hard to find a little piece of the island to call your own. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and am planning to do it again when I go back to Cancun.
An absolute must when in Cancun!!!! The staff,food,and experience was absolutely amazing!!!! So much FUN!!!!
I highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to cancun and wants to get an authentic experience. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. My sister and I booked this tour the day before in hopes to surprise my mom for her birthday. We were met by Carlos at 7AM who was on time, professional, and the best tour guide I have ever had. We picked up other people from different hotels and were on our way to Chichen Itza. Carlos was full of energy and charisma from the very beginning and was so happy to share the history of chichen itza with us. While on the tour, I was pleasantly surprised to find out were were going to be doing more than what the description said. We would go to a souvenir shop, Chichen Itza, Ik Kil, THEN a colonial mexican town. We started at the souvenir shop were my sister, my mom, and I bought calendars and necklaces with mayan letters and numbers. We went on to Chichen Itza and were provided with umbrellas which was wonderful because it was so hot. Carlos gave us so much history and was very knowledgable about recent and past discoveries made at one of the 7th wonders of the world. We have a great 2 hours there which was more than enough because of the hot weather. We proceeded to Ik Kil, where we had a buffet lunch which was so delicious and authentic and swam in Ik Kil for over an hour.It was so beautiful and fun. We got back on the tour bus and went to the colonial town which was a great way to end the day because we got a true feel of mexico's architecture, people, and culture. We had coffee and ice cream and sat around a fountain before it rained and had to get back on the bus. A great way to end the day. Carlos worked so hard all day and was so happy throughout and I would recommend him to anyone. Juan the bus driver was great and very sweet as well. If you're looking to get away from the hotels of Cancun and get the most out of your vacation/stay in Mexico, this tour is AMAZING! Definitely go on it!

Absolutely brilliant!!! I cannot give high enough praise for the Dancer and her crew. Travelling with two autistic teenagers we were a little worried, but everybody went the extra mile to make this tour an absolute delight for the whole family. If you only book one tour on your visit to Cancun, book this one!
This is the most fun experience I had while vacationing in Cancun! The entire crew was so fun and gracious to everyone on board! Snorkeling in the ocean was a once in a lifetime experience I'm grateful for and the trip to the island was absolutely beautiful! A special shoutout to Ricky for his infectious attitude and impressive dance moves!
If I was still in Cancun I would rebook just for the food! Lol. The crew's high energy and willingness to help makes it impossible for you not to have fun.
If you have a free day while in Cancun, I recommend you book this cruise.
Marcus our guide was very knowledgeable. Very early start at 515 and back at 1545. It took nearly an hour before we left Cancun enroute to Chichen Itza and Tulum the following day. But being at Chichen Itza before the crowds and the midday sun was more than worth it.
One of the best parts of my trip to Cancun! The cenotes are beautiful and refreshing. I would have been happy with the tour had we only done the cenotes, but that was only half of it. Snorkeling was amazing as well got to see plenty of sea turtles and other sea creatures.
Sometimes you never know what you are going to get with these excursions, but I was completely impressed by the company and tour guide. The tour guide provided equal amounts of information and entertainment very polite and well mannered.
The only thing to take note of if you are coming from Cancun, it is a VERY long ride. It took 2 hours to get there we had to make a very long stop off the main road to pick up some people in Playa del Carmen which added at least 30 minutes. They picked us up at promptly at 6:45am and we returned around 3:30pm. It is a long, busy day, but very much worth it.
I am so glad i took my husband on this dinner cruise. Awesome, awesome! This people knows how to put up a show. Dinner was great, drinks just kept coming but wish they put more alcohol on it. But overall we had fun. A must do when you're in Cancun.

Amazing! Such a wonderful experience despite the early start. The air conditioned bus took us swiftly to the site during which Marcos, our brilliant guide from Amigo tours, explained the history and what we would see. We arrived around 9am and began our tour before the crowds and the heat arrived. After walking around as a group we had time to roam on our own before heading back to Cancun just as the crowds starting piling in! Fascinating site accompanied by lots of little stalls selling crafts. Would recommend taking an umbrella - not for the rain but as protection from the heat even in the early morning although you can hire them on arrival - and plenty of water. Brilliant tour and well worth getting up early.
This Park is so much fun! I was surprised how quick the lines were. If you have a GoPro this is the place to bring it! They offer expensive photo packages which I did not choose to purchase and I am glad that I did not because my GoPro gave me amazing shots. The zip lines are cool but the other areas of the park like swimming and rafting through the caves are what made the trip to this park worth it. PLEASE BE AWARE you are only allowed to participate in each activity one time. The tour was convenient as they pick you up from your hotel and they also give you a ride back. The only problem is that you must stay the entire time the park is open so when you have finished all of the attractions you have to wait around for the bus for a while and there is no comfortable seating. Overall I would recommend this tour to anyone in visiting Cancun.
