Emerge early and greet your driver outside of your Tulum accommodation at 5:30am, when you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Tulum’s Mayan ruins.
Relish early access to the UNESCO-listed site and embark on a tour that reveals archaeological highlights including the Temple of the Frescoes, adorned with figures of the Mayan diving god. Capture photographs of ruins against backdrop of the sparkling Caribbean Sea and enrich your knowledge of the Mayan empire beside your guide.
Then, following your tour of Tulum, return to your vehicle and travel to Xel-Ha, an aquatic theme park that boasts more than 20 land- and water-based activities.
Snorkel beside tropical fish, trek through the rain forest, explore mangroves by boat, and let your adrenaline levels soar at the water park. For the fearless, the Stone of Courage implores you to climb to its 15-foot (5-meter) summit and plunge into the lagoon below.
At a prearranged time, reconvene with your guide for hotel drop-off in Tulum.
