Description

Take off on an adventure as easy as 1, 2, 3

The Riviera Maya is full of popular activities and excursions. With so much to see and do, it’s easy to feel like you might have missed something. A hidden cenote here, a private bay there — how does a vacationer hear about such places, let alone find them? Luckily, this Mayan Adventure tour takes you with a small group along the coast and into the jungle where you’ll discover three extraordinary ecosystems that aren’t easily found in this Caribbean paradise.

Enjoy unforgettable snorkeling in Riviera Maya

Throughout the day, experienced guides will not only offer snorkeling techniques, but share with you interesting facts about the flora and fauna found in these unique ecosystems. Snorkeling in an isolated, calm Caribbean inlet offers you a chance to swim with a variety of tropical marine life — and if you’re lucky, you’ll see endangered sea turtles that often use the inlet as a safe haven. Snorkel at your own pace or tag along with your guide.


Explore breathtaking waterways underground

Next, you’re off to another hidden gem — an open cenote found only by traveling down a seldom used road, and then along a bumpy, off-road path into the jungle. This natural pool has fresh water sourced from underground rivers flowing beneath the surface of the jungle floor. Entering this cenote begins as all good adventures should — by jumping off a cliff into the water. Don’t look down, just dive in!

The Yucatan Peninsula is known for some of the longest and most explorable underground river systems in the world. In the Riviera Maya, there are hundreds of hidden entrances to what the Mayans considered their sacred underworld. You’ll follow a path in the jungle to one of these sacred portals and jump into a crystalline pool.


Amazing rock formations await

As you swim farther into this amazing cavern, you’ll encounter an eerily peaceful subterranean wonderland filled with amazing stalactite and stalagmite formations. You can’t help but feel like an adventurer discovering a secret natural treasure for the first time!

When it comes to Riviera Maya activities and tours, you can’t beat this for discovering hidden gems. The currents, rivulets and temperatures all play a part in which fish you will meet and what you will see. Who knew science could be so beautiful?
