  • Tulum, Coba, & Cenote: Full-Day Tour

    1. Tulum, Coba, & Cenote: Full-Day Tour

    After being picked up in the lobby of your hotel by a certified guide, start your tour and receive an introduction to Mayan culture on the way. Make your first stop at Coba climbing the tallest pyramid in México where you can take in an incredible view of the area.  You’ll have time to swim at the Cenote (sinkhole) "Mariposa" and "Kin Ha" and relax in the refreshing water. Finish the day at the Tulum Archaeological Zone, an impressive Mayan city built on the coastline. Enjoy a guided tour through the area and free time to explore and take pictures.

    Pickup was on time and tour was informative with enough time to enjoy each stop. Only disappointment was Coba not allowing people to climb due to COVID-19, but that obviously wasn't their fault.

  • From Cancún: Coba, Cenote, Tulum and Playa del Carmen Tour

    2. From Cancún: Coba, Cenote, Tulum and Playa del Carmen Tour

    In this tour you’ll visit four incredible places. Begin with Tulum, the old Mayan city built on the seashore where you can appreciate its vestiges like El Castillo, El Templo de Los Frescos and its beautiful white sand beach. Then discover Cobá, a hidden Mayan town with the tallest pyramid in the Yucatán Peninsula, that you can climb to admire the jungle that surrounds you. Afterwards head to Cenote La Gloria, an impressive natural basement filled with crystalline water where you can swim. Visit Playa del Carmen, the vibrant city of the Caribbean perfect for shopping. From your hotel or meeting point, you will be taken to the departure center from where your adventure begins to Tulum, Cobá, Cenote and Playa del Carmen. This tour includes safe transportation, a certified guide, and a buffet lunch.

    The tour guides really make or break the tour! And in this trip they MADE IT! The guides, especially Raymundo was exceptional: he explained everything in the scorching heat giving us a complete understanding of the history, culture and life of the places we were visiting. The other guides with him helped keep track of the people and offered water for free to make sure we were all well hydrated: it showed great care! We spent the morning in Tulum, we then went to Coba and experienced the park on an enjoyable bike ride! The site is very large and you can cover more ground on bike than by foot (if you dont like to bike (rental 60 pesos), they have little wagons where someone will bike you around for a little more money) but it beats walking in the heat. This fee is on you-bring pesos. After Coba, they took us to a cenote but it didnt have that cavern feel, and we hit traffic on the way to Playa Del Carmen at the end of the day, so we only had an hour to powerwalk the touristy district.

  • From Cancun and Riviera Maya: Tulum, Coba, and Cenote Tour

    3. From Cancun and Riviera Maya: Tulum, Coba, and Cenote Tour

    Depart Cancun and travel in air-conditioned comfort to the ancient city of Tulum, famous for its breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. Explore the remains of the Mayan settlement and take a walk down to the beach. Continue to the pre-Hispanic city of Coba to look at the majestic Nohoch-Mul Temple, one of the tallest structures on the Yucatan Peninsula. Climb to the top of the 138-foot structure to get panoramic views of the surroundings. Learn the amazing history of one of the largest cities built by the Maya civilization. Then, cool down in a sacred cenote before some free time to stroll along 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen on the way back to Cancun.

    It was a really good value. There was so much packed into the day and it ended up being more like 14 hours instead of 11 hours from pick-up to drop-off. We enjoyed each place, but would've liked more time in Coba as it felt a little rushed and it was really nice to cool down a little in the jungle. The food was way better than I expected and it was a highlight for my 10 year old to see a Mayan village. Only improvement needed was the van. There were pieces falling apart inside and we couldnt even see our a window from the back where we were sitting. That said, I would definitely recommend.

    We really enjoyed this day trip. Tulum and Coba were very interesting places full of Mayan history. After that we visited a Cenote with crystal clear waters, it was a very refreshening stop. Later we had lunch at a Maya village. Everyone there was very friendly. Our group was small - we were 8 people - which was really good. Not only did we have the opportunity to interact with each other and learn our guide Marcus, better, but also we felt safer as we were not packed (Covid). Marcus was very flexible, he gave us time to buy some souvenirs and was always willing to show us around the natural environment of the area.

Simon was a great guide, very passionate and entertaining. The tour contains a lot of destinations in one day, so you can see a lot of important cultural things. They really have a good time management, although the time in the cenota and in playa del carmen were too short. Maybe the visit of the maya villaga / shamane could be shortened.

Amazing trip! The tour guides, Ricardo and Raymond, were energetic and knowledgeable and they made a genuine effort to make certain that everybody had a good time. I enjoyed the entire experience.

Pickup was on time and tour was informative with enough time to enjoy each stop. Only disappointment was Coba not allowing people to climb due to COVID-19, but that obviously wasn't their fault.
