Know More about this tour

After morning pickup from your Cancun hotel, travel with your guide to one of Mexicos most beautiful archaeological sites Tulum, a walled Maya city perched on top of a bluff overlooking the glittering Caribbean Sea. Formerly a port for Cob, Tulum thrived from the 13th to the 15th centuries and stands as one of the best preserved coastal Maya sites in the Yucatn. Follow your guide into the ruins and see highlights like the Temple of the Frescoes, learn about the ancient citys history and then take a leisurely stroll on the nearby beach.

Next, visit Rancho San Felipe, a Maya community of 30 residents, including a shaman, who takes you through a brief traditional purification ceremony. Then, enjoy a short hike into the jungle to reach the Yucatn areas second and third longest cave systems, Sac Actun (White Cave) and Nohoch Nah Chich (Giant Bird Cage).

Inside the caves, learn about the discovery and ongoing exploration of the underground river network that connects these two systems. Your guide leads you to the cenotes (sinkholes) where you can snorkel in transparent waters, surrounded by dramatic rock formations like stalactites and stalagmites.

Afterward, traverse the jungle aboard a 4x4 Mercedes-Benz Unimog, and continue your adventure with a 40-foot (12-meter) rappel down to Yaxmuul, another natural underground pond. Tear through the rain-forest canopy on three ziplines, the last one ending with a splash into a pool of water.

Then dig into a buffet lunch of homemade classic Maya fare. Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in the evening.

    Fantastic day of adventurous activities! Highlight was the cenote snorkelling, absolutely incredible sights and a whole different world there - would highly recommend this tour! Our guide Josué was very insightful and happily answered all our questions. He also gave me some great restaurant recommendations that I tried in Cancún. Thanks for being so awesome Josué! :)

    Deb did an amazing job as our leader on this all day tour! We had a great day full of adventure and learned a lot also!! We had a sweet meal after all the adventure that was very enjoyable in the picnic area... I would say its a very active excursion with heights and speed involved.

    The tour was great!
    But do not buy in advance from Viator!!! Buyer be aware that we paid the most of anyone on this tour.
    You can get it cheaper at the resort and they will even offer additional excursions at no charge!
    Never again Viator...

    The water in the cenotes is so clear, you feel like you are floating in the air, as you look to the floor below, up to 60ft deep. Stalactites, stalagmites, and columns abound, lit by the light of tour guide who accompanies you through the chasms. This part of the tour was absolutely spectacular and worth the trip alone. There are 5 ziplines, one of them ending in a water touchdown. Men.....keep your legs together to avoid a Mayan vasectomy. The ziplines were.......well ziplines. For first timers or acrophobic folks, this may be a highlight as you climb up well built rope ladders, at steep angles, up several stories to a wooden huts on stilts from where you will make the leap. The only dissappointment of the trip was that Tulum was in the afternoon in August. There is more than a mile and half of walking, and the tempurature and humidity was brutal to the point that my son and I gave up on exploring the site to get in the ocean until the end meet up time. When signing up for the tour, it states Tulum is visited first, which would have been ideal. Overall, great trip!

    A Must do! Our guide was wonderful, knowledgeable and fun. Helpful hints...eat a good breakfast or bring snacks. Lunch is late. Bring a back pack for a change of clothes and tip money!

    I booked this tour because I've seen so many pictures of Tulum and wanted to go there but didn't know if it was safe to rent a car and drive. I also wanted to go on the adventures - 4x4, ziplining and cenote snorkeling all sounded fantastic! We were very very happy with the tour. Diego, our guide, picked us up around 7am in a nice 15 passenger van and had 3 other stops at nearby hotels before our journey to Tulum. The man was spacious and almost new and he drove at a good speed - definitely beat the big ol' tour buses! The ride was smooth and we got there quickly!

    Tulum was gorgeous - just like the pictures! We opted to stay for the tour to hear the history of Tulum and then we had a little time to ourselves to explore. I think the archaeological tour and explanation wasn't as interested as I'd like and was fairly short - we didn't get anything from it and wish we'd take the extra time to explore and walk around the ruins ourselves. We had about an hour to explore but it definitely wasn't enough time to see much of anything, especially if you wanted to take pictures. It also rained on us so we weren't able to see what we wanted to and wished we had more time here. I didn't get to go onto the beach at all and made a good choice not to get wet yet cause it was such a short time period here.

    Onwards to the Jungle Maya, which was only about a 5 minute ride away. The 4x4 vehicle was cool to take us into the jungle - but it was a paved road and they only made it bumpy for the effects. I wished it was a little more like an offroading experience so the advertisement for a 4x4 ride was interpreted differently. It definitely wasn't what I expected but it is exactly like the photos show. We are given lockers to lock our stuff in, and towels to carry in a little backpack. We started with 2 ziplines and then headed to the 3rd zipline where we ziplined into the cenote. Such an awesome experience!!! We then proceeded to rappel into the cenote and snorkel into the cenote, which was my favorite event all day. The waters were so clear and the limestone formations were beautiful. You get to see mini bats inside the caves and it was a once in a lifetime experience. I've been to a cenote last time I was in Cancun, probably close to Chitzen Itza, and this was by far more beautiful. They also did a little Mayan ritual/blessing inside a cave, which was short and felt like it was to pass some time. And we had a nice Mayan lunch - with stewed chicken, vegetable soup, empanadas, a banana leaf pancake, and some rice and beans with tamarindo for drinks! We then proceed to the last two ziplines to get back to the start and return our towels and change. We were given tequila in exchange for our towels and were able to view and purchase photos and videos taken during the journey!

    Then back to Cancun we went. I honestly wished it was a bit longer - if they extended the Tulum ruins part so we can shop at some of the vendors and look around and maybe have breakfast. We left Tulum around 3-3:30pm so it was still pretty early. We got back to the hotel probably around 5ish and we were the last group to get dropped off. I would've liked to extend the tour a bit to get a bit more time in Tulum. But loved our guide - he was so nice and friendly! And everyone was fantastic!

    The tour is more of a day at Jungle Safari doing the Cenote Abseil and Ziplines with a visit to Tulum afterwards to see the site, the guide from the Safari company was very good with his knowledge on Tulum though and explained it all well - The photo policy at the Jungle site is a joke though, you are not allowed to take photos in the Cenote or Zipline as they take them and charge a fortune for them. They have rules about safety with cameras on the abseil / rappel and needing your hands free but won't allow you to put it in sealed pockets Not breaking their rules as they want you to buy their photos, that is bad profiteering from my side, also bargain on the photos, they are so overpriced people initially refuse the first price Usually 50-70 for a package and they will go down 15-20 if you haggle, also be aware they charge groups the photo price for all, try and get individual photos
