What to Expect
Your tour will begin with flexible round-trip transportation options, with departures possible from either Cancun or Playa del Carmen. Traveling through stunning Yucatan scenery, your front-door pickup will take you by air-conditioned minivan to the ancient ruins of Tulum. Get your camera ready to capture unforgettable views of the abandoned towers that make up this ancient cliffside trading port, rising from the sea above the old city walls. Your guide will point out the most important buildings and explain the significance of the stuccoed faces of the sixth-century Temple of the Masks and the stepped pyramid of El Castillo. After you’ve explored the ancient, pre-Colombian civilization, you’ll turn to the natural splendor of the Mexican Riviera with a visit to Xel-Ha, a natural aquarium teeming with colorful plant and animal life. Explore cenotes (Maya swimming holes), strap on snorkeling gear to come face-to-face with tropical fish, or simply lounge in a beach chair as you admire the shimmering lagoon.

Extremely hot and there is a serious seaweed problem along the coast making it impossible to swim and odor is terrible. Rather than the Xel-Ha trip we took the bus from Playa de Carmen station for less than $10 dollars US and the entry fee is very small to get into the park.
