The tour starts at the specified meeting point in Tulum and you travel to the Gran Cenote, one of the most famous cenotes in the area, unique for its amazing combination of cave, underground river, open sections and the turtles that live there. This is a great place for snorkeling in the cenote and because it is very well known, we make sure you get there early before the crowds arrive to fully enjoy the beauty.

Afterwards, another highlight awaits you: snorkeling in a private cenote. The cenotes are one of the most attractive features of the landscape of the Yucatan Peninsula. These amazing freshwater caves are home to magnificent limestone formations, stalactites and columns. But above all, the fact that they are flooded with rainwater is what makes them so special: the color and clarity of the water is phenomenal, creating reflections, lighting effects and a mystical feeling. It is not without reason that the cenotes are sacred to the Mayan tribes and are considered the gateway to the underworld.
You will visit a unique cave where you can admire the different formations and learn about their development process by walking through the cave approximately 600 m underground. This is the perfect setting to learn the meaning and importance of these caves to the people of the Yucatan Peninsula. During the first part of the cave you will walk through about 1m of water until you come to an area where natural light comes through, allowing you to swim in deeper water with natural light.
