Where you'll be

We will visit 3 cenotes of the third longest flooded cave system in the world "K'oox Baal" something that very few people have the privilege of living. Through a 40-minute walk in the virgin jungle we will reach these natural places and we will go deep into these sites to enjoy, explore and learn about these mystical cenotes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 3 reviews.

This tour was hands-down the best thing I did during my first two weeks in the Mayan Riviera. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to get off the beaten path, away from the cookie-cutter tours with big groups, and experience something you could only see in this part of the world with people who share their love and knowledge of their home with you. I signed up for this trip with my boyfriend. We had a few questions about the types of spaces we'd be snorkeling in because he's a bit claustrophobic, and communication with Einner was great- he made us feel way more comfortable and ready to go on the tour. Our group was very small, too- only four participants and two guides. The tour was primarily in spanish, but Einner said they are working on doing an english version as well, so make sure you check with them about what language you would like. The money value for this tour is fantastic, since it is approximately 8 hours long and includes a delicious homemade meal in Chemuyil at the end. But now let me get to the best part- the snorkeling in the caves! I am a very beginner snorkeler. This is only the second time i've ever snorkeled in my life (the first being just a few days before in Akumal). I felt completely safe with our guides Einner and Ivan, who supplied us with snorkel gear, wetsuits, and snacks. Water shoes had to be purchased but at a reasonable price. The guys drove us to a pair of cenotes outside of Chemuyil that are absolutely incredible. Words can't do this experience justice, so just trust me, you have to go :) The best part was learning about Einner and Ivan's organization, Bejil-Ha, and their social and environmental mission to clean up and protect the cenotes in their community and also share their love of protecting the environment with local youth. It's totally grassroots, built out of a love of their home, and it was a very special experience to get to visit a place as incredible as the underground cave cenotes with them. Another perk is that they will take really cool photos and videos on their GoPro, so you can have a bunch of awesome photos to share with friends and family when you get home! This is one of the best eco tours i've ever had the chance to go on, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to go on an adventure and have this once-in-a-lifetime underground cave snorkeling experience.

Having been to Mexico quite a few times, I can say this is the BEST experience I have had with a tour, or cenotes. Einner and his team showed us their local cenotes in a magical, inspiring way. He communicated with us well before the trip to make sure we had everything we needed for a great time. His tour was easy to find (he sent a dropped pin to give to our taxi), and had great equipment. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience I will never forget. I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who is ready for adventure, and comfortable in the water.

The experience was one of the best of our travels so far. The cave system we explored was so beautiful and a very unique experience. The underground ecosystem was something I've never seen before and some of the views in there is something I'll never forget. Einner and Fernando were very knowledgeable and professional. Also the food we had after the experience was incredible!! This is my second experience with these guys and I'm so happy I'm able to support their incredible cause of preserving all the Cenotes in their local area. Overall unforgettable experience!
