What you'll do

In this magical "Early Bird" Cenote Experience from Cancun (Staying in Playa del Carmen? It's OK, ask me!) you will get to visit 2 very different types of cenotes WITHOUT CROWDS, 100% GUARANTEED! Perfect for groups, families with kids & couples. PLUS..we are always back at 11am, this means you will still have a FULL day to enjoy the beach or anything else after my trip!!!

We visit a fun & adventurous pond-like cenote that is lost in the middle of the jungle about one hour away and then a mystical cave-like cenote with unbelievably crystal-clear water perfect for snorkeling the depths of the earth. This trip is a "have fun in the water trip". However swimming is NOT required at all. Your can: swim, snorkel, float, ride water zip-lines and do "leaps of faith" (high jumps and jumping into holes in the earth) if you wish OR just stay dry and relax on the edge taking breath taking pictures. We are allowed 30 min in each cenote, please be respectful of these time limits.

Also THIS Airbnb experience is 100% hosted by a local Mexican host (me!). I'm NOT a big established and fancy tour company with employees. I am very passionate about my country, my city and all water activities. Support the local and independent -not company owned- Airbnb Experiences, just like this one.

*NOTE: A local community entry fee of $35 US dollar -PER PERSON- is NOT INCLUDED in this Airbnb's price.*

Where you'll be

We will visit 2 unique cenotes, BEFORE they are open to the public, located deep in the Mayan jungle and hear as it is waking up.

I have personally hand-picked these because they are very representative of what cenotes are. There are over 2,500 cenotes and a handful of tourist traps. This is the best alternative if you want to explore authentic and beautiful cenotes off the beaten path. INTERESTED IN A PRIVATE TRIP, let me know!

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 675 reviews.

This excursion is definitely a must!! The cenotes were both unique and having them to ourselves was the best experience ever!!! I felt very comfortable and enjoyed the natural view and sounds without so many people. It felt like a private tour! Santiago was very friendly and gave us great detail of what to expect. I appreciate the information he gave ahead of time, the screenshot of our meeting spot so there was no missing it. I really enjoyed every minute and having it early in the day was convenient so we had the afternoon to spare. It is definitely worth it. We had time to do more site seeing after the experience. I will definitely come back to him again!

It was such a great experience, even for those like me who cannot swim. In addition, Santiago is very knowledgeable about the cenotes and made sure that everyone was comfortable. We had plenty of time in each cenote and really appreciate the different ones he showed us. Everything from the meeting point to the communication to the transportation was thoughtfully planned out by Santiago and it was an efficient process overall. We’d definitely book again with him when we come back in the future and recommend you do the same when visiting Cancun or anyplace nearby.

Want to skip the hustle and bustle of touristy areas? Do this experience! This was an intimate, relaxing day trip. Santiago only takes a maximum of 6 guests. He has excellent communication and was prompt in arrival and departure. We got to meet nice people who happened to be from NY too, and a cool couple from Texas. We had the cenotes all to ourselves, which was amazing. I also learned more about the local communities; the people whose lands the majority of the cenotes belong to. It's okay if you don't know how to swim!! The life jacket will save you or you can do what you are comfortable with. There's no pressure. ☺️ I recommend you, reader, to try out this experience!

Santiago did a wonderful job. His knowledge of the area and Cenotes was great. The early morning tour made it even better since we had both Cenotes to ourselves. Thank You Santiago.
