I wanted to such a tour but there were so many tours out there on the net that I didn't know which one to pick as they all seemed great. I was then recommended to use a travel startup yourlocalcousin com which connects travelers with locals for customized travel planning and itineraries. I connected with a local from Playa del Carmen and she told me to pick this tour. It was best use of my 6 hours and the guide Thomas and his crew were great! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
This tour was absolutely worth the time and money! Our guide Jessica was amazing. She spoke 4 different languages to the people on our tour. She is extremely knowledgeable about the cenotes and turtles.
Make sure you wear a swim shirt or long sleeves when snorkeling because sun screen is not allowed due to potential damage to the reef. They have long sleeve shirts available to purchase for 20.00. Also, make sure to purchase the zip drive with all the pictures for 30.00. The photographer is with you for the day. Best 30.00 I spent, over 300 pictures.
I HIGHLY recommend this tour!!
We greatly enjoyed snorkeling with the turtles with our guides Malcolm and Yuri. Swimming in the cenotes was phenomenal. My family will long remember this great adventure.
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.
This tour is great. We started off looking at turtles in the Akumal Bay. We followed that up with a snorkel in two cenotes. Cenotes were beautiful. This was an outstanding tour. Nickolas was our guide and was simply great. Everything was as expected. Transportation was on time and great. This is what you want when you book a tour and don't want bad surprises.
Great outing. Saw a lot of turtles and the cenotes were awesome.

Great experience and our tour guide Ricardo was excellent and knowledgable.
This tour was so much fun!!! Swimming with the turtles and fish, swimming in 3 cenotes, you will definitely get a good work out! Ricardo was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and patient for the non-swimmers in the group. He spoke many different languages and was able to communicate with everyone in the group. Victor was our reliable and trusted driver and Nacho captured all of our candid moments on camera. They were all amazing just like the experience. I would recommend this tour to everyone!!
Our young family of 4 throughly enjoyed this tour.
Pick up in the morning was prompt from the property we were staying at in PDC
We saw a few turtles on the first excursion to Akumal - but there were quite a few people there doing the same thing so may have prevented the turtles from surfacing
The highlight was definitely the trip to the underground Cenote!
Our guide was very informative without being too pushy
Overall we had a great day out and would certainly recommend this tour
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.
