What you'll do
We want to show you 5 different cenotes. Actually our 5 favorite cenotes. We would take you would like to pick you up in Playa del Carmen or Tulum at 08:00 AM and take you on a quick ride. It takes 20 minutes from Playa del Carmen and 30 minutes from Tulum to arrive at the cenotes. Once we've arrived we would change into our wetsuits (optional) and start exploring the cenotes and underground caves. We are going to walk through two of them while we are explaining you everything about the this Yucatan peninsula, what makes it so special and why cenotes are so important to the eco-system and in the history of the Mayas. We will take you snorkeling in 3 of the cenotes. No worries, should you never snorkeled before, we will be happy to explain the technique in a patient way. There is actually no better to learn snorkeling than in a cenote, since the water is calm, visibility is great and it is fresh water. Snorkeling, we will explore two caves and one open, lagoon like cenote. In one of the caves we would rappel, which makes our exploration a bit more adventurous. Once we are done with all 5 cenotes we would love to offer you (optional) the ride on 3 zip-lines.
Kay, was born and raised in Berlin, Germany. He worked in the Dutch flower industry as a international purchaser and traveled frequently, before moving to Playa del Carmen. His own tour company grew out of the realization that many local tour operators were not sufficiently satisfying their customers; thus Kay devoted himself to providing greater care and attention in crafting memorable and personalized tours. Kay’s experience working for a number of local tour operators, along with his passion for excellence, has ensured that his company is now one of the region leaders in this field.

Where you'll be
4 of the 5 cenotes are underground and cavern like. There is always light at any point and there are no tight spaces. We have had people with claustrophobic tendencies and the were totally fine at 3 out of 5 cenotes. They would watch our snorkeling and rappel at the other two cenotes and fully enjoyed it. One cenote is completely open and is like a little lagoon with flora and fauna. Many times we encounter fresh water turtles there.
