What you'll do

We will be exploring 2 truly magical cave cenotes that lead into a stunning underground river system. Unlike other cenotes that are jam-packed with tourists and large tour groups, we will be guiding you to locations that are less known. With us as your guides we will show you a surreal scene of a sacred underground tree, like a picture straight out of a fairy tale, in real life. Then we will swim into an underground river filled with stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations that make you feel as if you are exploring another planet. Access to the underground river system is normally reserved for certified cave divers however we will be exploring an area that is not completely submerged under water making it possible to swim and wade without diving equipment or certification. We have been to countless cenotes in the area as well as other entrances into the underground river system and nothing compares to the locations we will be visiting. Come with us and we will show you the best and most special cenote and underground river experience that the Yucatan Peninsula has to offer.

THIS WAS THE BEST EXCURSION I DID WHILE IN TULUM!! I was very lucky to be able to get a one on one tour with Juan and it was the the most magical experience I’ve ever had. Juan was super accommodating, knowledgeable and got some amazing photos of me. I can’t recommend this tour enough! I’m already planning my next trip back with more people so they have a chance to experience it :)

Juan was kind and informative. He met us promptly at the meet up location. Made sure we were comfortable and safe in the water. I appreciated the break time he gave us to hydrate and snack (with items he brought) before heading to the second cenote area. He even made an unplanned stop on the way back because the other tourists wanted to take photos with a Tulum sign. Great guy and fun experience in caves!!

This is a must-do while in Tulum! The first cenote had crystal clear water where you could see all the way to the bottom. I don’t think I’ve ever been in water so clear. It was breathtaking. But, the swimming through the underground cave, that left me in awe. Do yourself a favor and book Juan! He was our guide and he was fun, knowledgeable and allowed us to take our time to really enjoy every drop of the tour.

I initially did not receive any response via Airbnb when messaging the host so I connected via IG, at which point I was told there was a two person min. To me- it seemed like a clear attempt for a money grab as Airbnb allows you to book for one person and regardless of one or two people…isn’t the host driving the same distance and spending the same time. I was able to book for one person just fine using the Airbnb booking link. Anyhoo, Juan showed up and he was a real gem! Very personable and he instantly made me feel quite comfortable. I am not a swimmer and he help me to be comfortable in the water. This experience is two locations. The 1st of which is nothing to marvel at but in my case, it helped me get comfortable in the water. You’re really paying for the second location where we spent about 2 hours and a guide is required. This was a truly magical location and Juan got great pictures of me. During my stay in Tulum and connecting with other tour guides, I realized that this tour is priced a lot higher than other guides who visit this same cenote of pet cemetery. However, for me it was a once in a lifetime experience, I got a private tour and great pictures that will last a lifetime. I was pleased with the experience.

Our trip with Juan was more than amazing, his knowledge about cenotes and caves was astonishing. Also just a down to earth and cool guy to hang out with. Definitely a must do in Tulum, and will be coming back to do again in the future!
