Following pickup at your hotel in the morning, board the comfortable tour vehicle and settle in for the ride to Puerto Morelos. Get to know your small group while enjoying coffee, pastries, and chocolate. Learn about the unusual geological formations that you are about to visit, a network of underground caves connected by subterranean rivers. 

Each cenote represents a different element: earth, water, fire, and air. Hear about the Mayan legends and mysticism that surround these sinkholes and the myth of the alux, or spirit beings that guard the cenotes.

Rappel down the rock walls of Lu’um (earth), a young and semi-open cenote. Here, water flows horizontally and connects to the aquifer through tunnels and caves. Finally, zoom along parallel ziplines at Lik’ and feel your adrenaline pumping on this high-flying adventure across the pool. Enjoy swimming in the slow-flowing water of this ancient cenote, which is fully exposed to the lush vegetation due to its collapsed walls.

K’aak (fire) is an open cenote with underground currents, surrounded by vertical walls and interesting landscapes. Interact with nature as you paddle a kayak or float in an inner tube amid the verdant jungle. Visit Ha’ (water), a cavern cenote with aquatic fauna and beautiful rock formations, and explore underwater gardens of water lilies in a stunning natural setting. Snorkel in calm waters with great visibility as you come face to face with colorful fish.

Eat a gourmet picnic lunch accompanied by beer, water, wine, and coffee before returning to your hotel for drop-off.

I’m happy to change my review when y’all send our pictures that we paid for. While the tour was wonderful , this is the second time I have done this tour and paid for pictures and not received them. I have email multiple times. Sent my receipts and absolutely no response. $139 dollars for pictures and nothing!

We loved our guide - she was very fun and knowledgeable! This is the only excursion we did on our trip, and it was perfect. It's a long day and physically demanding at times, but definitely doable for people of all activity levels. Life jackets are required for all activities so while you need to know how to swim, you don't really need to be a strong swimmer. The breakfast snacks and lunch are pretty good but nothing spectacular. The cenotes were all beautiful and unique in their own ways. We had a blast and would definitely recommend!

Great Honeymoon Excursion

My husband and I were in Cancun for our honeymoon and chose to do this excursion and we were so glad we did! We didn’t really know what to expect but it exceeded our expectations and was a blast! I am not a fan of height or jumping into water but so glad I did because it was such a great time and not as scary as I thought. Our tour guide was Isaiah, he was hilarious and motivated me to try everything! The lunch was also amazing and included a very wide spread, all very good! We purchased the photos after the tour and we received over 100 which I appreciated for the price point of the photo package. Definitely recommend this tour we had a blast!!

Our tour guide Gabbi was amazing! One of the best experiences we have done so far. My 9 year old was fearless, he jumped the highest cliff and wanted to just keep doing it. If you want an action packed adventure this is the one to do. Also our photographer was amazing too. Great action photos and family photos. Package price for the photos was also a great deal. I would definitely recommend this adventure!
