What you'll do

Hello and welcome!

Our day starts with Muyil, an archaeological site where - Mother nature allowing - we'll find howler & spider monkeys, beautiful endemic birds, rare orquid species and respect inspiring reptiles and mammals, as we walk through the temples deep inside the jungle and the mangroves on silent introspecting wooden paths.

We'll do a 2hrs boat ride across two of Sian Ka'an main lagoons, swimming, birdwatching and being dragged effortless as the current flows back to the sea through these careless inspiring canals connecting each of the lagoons.

Optionally, we could visit a cenote close by, a mercado or any other places downtown, offering us a local insight to appreciate the native culture from different perspectives. I'll suggest either rural cuisine or hand-picked places to create a regional gastronomical tasting menu for experiencing culture through our palate too.

If coming solo, in couples or group, get better rates with up to 30%.

This was a wonderful and very educational experience. It help us to understand the aspects of the culture that are hidden from tourists. Alex was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour as well as the native speech and the wonderful food of the region. All in all a very exceptional experience that I would recommend again and again.

Spending a day with Alejandro, his colleagues, and others on the tour, as well as the locals we met, was absolutely the best experience I had during my stay in Tulum. The locations we visited were beautiful, the people we met were warm and welcoming, Alejandro was very thoughtful and brought coffee, tea, plenty of fruits and snacks to have during the day. He took photos and videos and really made the experience very special and personal. I loved every moment of this and am truly grateful I had the experience. Pasar un día con Alejandro, sus colegas y los demas en el tour, y los nativos que conocimos, fue absolutamente la mejor experiencia que tuve durante mi estadía en Tulum. Los lugares que visitamos fueron hermosos, la gente que conocimos fue amable y acogedora. Alejandro fue muy atento y trajo café, té, muchas frutas y bocadillos para comer durante el día. Tomó fotos y videos y realmente hizo que la experiencia fuera muy especial y personal. Me encantó cada momento de esto y estoy realmente agradecida por la experiencia.

What an amazing experience! I learned so much about the history and culture of the Mayan people, the beautiful scenery and nature outside of Tulum (including the rainforest, animals, cenotes we saw and experienced), and I was also able to practice my Spanish. My boyfriend and I were picked up and dropped off, at our hotel, by Alejandro and his righthand man that day, Hugo (not sure of the spelling!). They were amazing tour guides, kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating! Pictures were taken throughout the day and Alejandro sent them to us after the trip- this was incredible because I'm horrible with taking pictures. We had an amazing meal cooked made by a wonderful and welcoming Mayan family, we learned hands-on how to make the perfect tortilla, and I swam in a cenote with bats! We got to experience a traditional mayan ceremony, enjoy a quick zip-line before paddling across a beautiful lake, and enjoy fresh fruit and pastries that Alejandro had brought for us. This day was unforgettable and I highly recommend taking advantage of this unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I would bring comfortable shoes to walk and "hike" in, a towel and dry change of clothes for after swimming in the cenote and some extra pesos to tip (for donations to support local programs).
