What You Can Expect

Xenotes Oasis Maya: Cenotes Adventure from Playa del Carmen

Have a fun-filled day at four different cenotes!

Depart from your Playa del Carmen hotel in a comfortable and air-conditioned minivan to begin your exhilarating expedition. Sit back and admire the picturesque scenery as you nibble on pastries and sip aromatic coffee, then listen as your guide offers insight into the geology and ecology of the Yucatan peninsula. 

Arrive at the atmospheric Xenotes Oasis Maya, a new park operated by Experiencias Xcaret, and commence your journey to the four stunning cenotes, each one of which represents a different element. Engross yourself in your guide’s fascinating explanation of how the cenotes were used by Mayans for sacrificial and spiritual purposes as you admire the luscious greenery and unique sounds of the jungle. 

Approach the first ‘fire’ cenote and jump into a comfortable kayak to explore the mysterious waters. Paddle around the perimeter to enjoy the gorgeous surrounding scenery and the mystical ambience within the sinkhole. Re-energize after each cenote with an indulgent champurrado, a traditional chocolate-based drink, and cookies for a revitalizing snack. 

Next, don your protective gear and clip yourself in to enjoy the ride of your life over the second ‘wind’ cenote. Soar over the sparkling pool on your high velocity zip line before plunging into the clear water surrounded by crumpling limestone walls for an invigorating dip. 

Listen to the powerful rush of fast flowing rivers as you rappel down the walls of the third ‘earth’ cenote to the inviting waters below; watch streams meander through the twisting tunnels and deep caves as you descend to the subterranean depths. 

See, too, the final ‘water’ cenote, a fascinating formation complete with rugged rock formations and diverse wildlife. Don your snorkel and submerge yourself in the refreshing waters to discover water-lily gardens and colorful fish in this harmonious underwater wonderland. 

Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch during a stop on the return journey to your hotel; treat your taste buds to fusilli-vegetable soup, a premium selection of cheeses and deli meats, and rustic breads and fresh salads. Sip complimentary drinks such as coffee, wine, beer and water throughout your lunch then settle in for the short trip back to your Playa del Carmen hotel.

Our guide was spectacular!!!! I cannot say enough about this excursion. It was amazing seeing the 5 xenotes and learning about the formation. It was a lot of fun rappelling down, zip line, jumping off the cliff all of it was great. Someone lost their camera in the last one and our guide dove 27 ft to get it!. The food they provided was delicious and the snacks in between were great too! I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour. We went to 4 different locations and each one was more beautiful than the next. We did zip lining and swimming I believe we even did some kayaking. The lunch was good and the trip was one to remember. Me and my husband highly recommend.

If you only do one tour in Cancun, do this one!! The scenery was gorgeous, the cenotes were clear and beautiful, there were fun activities at each of the multiple cenotes you visit it was like a completely natural water park built into the jungle, and the lunch and snacks were excellent! I can't think of anything bad to say about this experience!!

We loved this tour. Our guide was wonderful and like a hen, making sure we were all there and enjoying ourselves. The places are beautiful and it's hard to believe they were even found, so far off the beaten track. There was plenty to do and see and the breaks between denotes were welcome. The snacks and lunch were perfect. We had a great time.

This was an awesome tour! Lots of fun activities but also relaxing.

We were transported in a comfortable van to the Oasis Maya private cenotes. These cenotes are not open to the public so it was never crowded. We had about 10 in our group. There are other groups but they stagger them through the various locations so it never seems crowded or rushed.

The tour provides two towels, a mask and snorkel, and food and drink. I highly recommend you bring water shoes. Also they don't want you wearing sunscreens or insect repellant as it might damage the ecosystem. Mostly you'll be in the shade so sunscreen is not needed and I had no problem with mosquito's even though I'm usually a magnet for them. Our guide explained that they plant neem plants around the cenotes which acts as a natural insect repellant.
You'll be taken to several sites throughout the day. The roads between the sites were dirt and very bumpy. The facilities at each site were very nice with changing rooms, bathrooms, and eating areas. They were like little jungle oases. At each site you'll be given a life vest to wear.
The first site we went to we rappelled into. The rappelling was easy. You just sit in the harness and they lower you down. The next site we got to snorkel and kayak.
At the third cenote, we got to zip-line into the water. We were able to do this multiple times. At this site we had a nice lunch. Finally we went to the last cenote, where we got to zip-line again, followed by a leisurely swim down a long open cenote.
Our guide was very good and spoke perfect english and spanish. He was very informative about how the cenotes are formed. A photographer comes along to take pictures. You can buy a flash drive with the results for $79.
All in all it was a great day. It does involve activity and swimming so you have to be up for that, but it’s nothing too intense. I highly recommend this tour.
