Overview

Explore the Yucatan jungle's flooded sinkholes, or cenotes, during this full-day guided eco-adventure. Paddle through the underground caverns on kayaks, snorkel in the subterranean aquatic habitats and float on the azure water on inner tubes. Listen as your guide recounts Mayan folktales about mythical guardians that protect these sacred water sources. This small-group tour, limited to 19 people, includes snacks, a gourmet picnic lunch, and round-trip hotel transportation.
  • Mayan cenote adventure tour in the Yucatan
  • Snorkel and kayak in four swimming holes amid aquatic flora and fish
  • Rappel down rock walls in a semi-open cenote and zipline over an ancient cenote
  • Enjoy a variety of cheeses, deli meats, rustic breads and fresh salads for lunch
  • Round-trip transport by air-conditioned vehicle from Cancun and Riviera Maya hotels
  • Small-group tour limited to 25 ensures a more personalized experience
Following pickup at your hotel in the morning, board the comfortable tour vehicle and settle in for the ride to Puerto Morelos. Get to know your small group while enjoying coffee, pastries, and chocolate. Learn about the unusual geological formations that you are about to visit, a network of underground caves connected by subterranean rivers. 

Each cenote represents a different element: earth, water, fire, and air. Hear about the Mayan legends and mysticism that surround these sinkholes and the myth of the alux, or spirit beings that guard the cenotes.

Rappel down the rock walls of Lu’um (earth), a young and semi-open cenote. Here, water flows horizontally and connects to the aquifer through tunnels and caves. Finally, zoom along parallel ziplines at Lik’ and feel your adrenaline pumping on this high-flying adventure across the pool. Enjoy swimming in the slow-flowing water of this ancient cenote, which is fully exposed to the lush vegetation due to its collapsed walls.

K’aak (fire) is an open cenote with underground currents, surrounded by vertical walls and interesting landscapes. Interact with nature as you paddle a kayak or float in an inner tube amid the verdant jungle. Visit Ha’ (water), a cavern cenote with aquatic fauna and beautiful rock formations, and explore underwater gardens of water lilies in a stunning natural setting. Snorkel in calm waters with great visibility as you come face to face with colorful fish.

Eat a gourmet picnic lunch accompanied by beer, water, wine, and coffee before returning to your hotel for drop-off.

Fun day!

Tour was amazing! We had a blast! Our guide David was super friendly and helpful. Make sure you arrange hotel pickup with the tour company in advance. And bring water shoes! They provide a snack after the first stop and a delicious lunch after the third stop. Beer and wine included, too! We were picked up at our hotel at 9:00 AM and dropped back off around 5:15. It was a highlight of our week in Cancun:)

Braulio Awesome!! Photographer Mario is a Weasel!!

This tour was awesome, our main tour guide Baulio was amazing! He was the best, very accommodating and treated our group with professionalism and patience. However, my biggest gripe is the little photographer weasel Mario. Mario attempted to "gringo tax" me as a Mexican-American. I bought the $69 package of photos and decided to pay in pesos to which we agreed to 1,300 pesos even. I handed this doofus 1,500 pesos and when Mario returned with my change he did not come back with 200 pesos. He came back with around 135 pesos, he was trying to snake me out of 65 pesos. Yes, I know its 65 pesos. But it is the whole principal of the matter. Mario tells me 1,300 pesos, I give 1,500 pesos and expect 200 pesos back. Not with Mario!!! He wants to then get in an argument that I did not understand the price and he tries to show me the receipt where he wrote 1,365. However, this moron forgot I had brought my girlfriend and that we both speak Spanish. He felt so stupid he complied and gave me back my 200 pesos in front of everyone. Mario ruined my experience and is a poor representation of the company. He literally should be fired and/or ostracized from this company's premises. I attended on 02/01/2020 which was my 35th birthday! Thanks Mario!! You shmuck..

Worth It.

This tour is worth it. It takes you to 4 different cenotes and each one has a different activity. Full of fun and adventure. You will be in a swimsuit all day. Bring swim shoes - flip flops will not cut it. Also bring a waterproof case for your cell phone if you want to take photos - they also sell them prior to the tour if you forget. This is the only tour we did and we did not regret it!

Best day ever! Noe was an amazing tour guide and made the trip so much fun. Picnic lunch was excellent. A buffet or bread, meats, cheese and salad. No shortage of beer, wine, soft drinks or water either! Couldn't fault this trip. Worth every penny! Professional photos were great too. Uriel our photographer was fantastic. Water shoes are a must!

This trip was the highlight of our entire stay in Mexico. All of the planned activities were fun, varied, and well-paced. Our guide was fantastic! Even the lunch was great. I would highly recommend this trip and would do it again if I returned to Mexico in the future.

We had the best time on our Xenotes tour! The other 5 star reviews were spot on. A couple things to know: confirm exactly where you will be picked up, we didn’t and were in the wrong place. We missed the bus and had to reschedule for the next day. Customer service was excellent though. They provided two towels, one for during the day and one to use at the end if you choose to shower. There are bathrooms, changing rooms and showers at each stop and they provide water and soda at each stop as well. We were really impressed with the safety precautions and how well organized the trip was. Be sure to buy the pictures! It was such a relaxing day since we didn’t have to worry about phones\cameras getting wet and their photos were better than we would have taken.
