You will be picked up from your hotel between 7-8am and transferred to a natural park to swim in breathtaking cenotes. A cenote is a natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. Especially associated with the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, cenotes were sometimes used by the ancient Maya for sacrificial offerings. Its water is often very clear, as the water comes from rain water filtering slowly through the ground, and therefore contains very little suspended particulate matter. The groundwater flow rate within a cenote may be very slow.

Then, you will visit Tulum arqueological zone, where with the help of a professional historical guide you will become real experts in the history and culture of Mayan civilization. The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 feet) tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists.

Once your Tulum visit is over, the “nature” part of the tour is waiting for you again in Akumal, where you will be allowed to swim with wild turtles in their natural environment, guided by a professional. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the coasts of the Caribbean Sea. It has a particular appeal for those interested to have a unique snorkeling experience due to its rich marine life (mainly turtles) in shallow waters. If you come to Akumal you must get in the water and go snorkeling right away! At the end of this tour before heading back to your hotel, you will taste delicious, authentic Mexican food for a lunch.
