What you'll do

Cenotes are beautiful, but thery're even better when you have it all for yourself and you can enjoy it in all it's greatness. I know the most beautiful, hidden cenotes suitable for anybody, and depending on how adventurous you're feeling, you can choose your challenge.

I'll pick you up around 8 - 8:15 am ( hotels in town, meeting point, some hotel beach zone)

We'll arrive at the cenote around 8:45 am
Once we are diving-suited up, with flashlights, life vests and snorkels ready, we go into the cave to explore. The first 30% of the trip is to build up confidence, walk and enjoy an amazing view; the next 70% of the trip, the callenge goes up and go into partially flooded tunnels leading to hidden chambers and glorious stalactites only a few dare to visit. The wetsuit is needed because the total swim time is about 1 hour and 20 minutes, finishing at about 10:30 am

After leaving the Cenote, we'll have some fruit and/or cookies to recharge our energy and go visit the second one, which is completely different: an open, colorful space full of life. After about 35 - 45 minutes of swimming here, we will have an authentic mexican meal at around 12 pm.
Other things to note
If you can't swim or suffer claustrophobia, do not worry I'll do my best to help you overcome it so you will know the wonders and warmth of Mother Earth's bossom! please send me a message once you booked to confirm

13 years ago I started traveling with my backpack throughout Southern Mexico, and Mayan Riviera was a "must" every 2 years until I knew it all! After finishing my career as an Environmental Engineer I worked in Xcaret for 3 years, however, nature and my passion for water always called me. That's when I started my Profesional career as a tourist guide, and my preparation in many fields, such as cave diver, dive master, rescue diver, lifeguard, and even a CPR certification by the Mexican Red Cross Association (emitted April, 2019)... Over the last two years, I've been sharing my knowledge and experience with hundreds of people, but I want to give more! A completely unique experience!

Highly recommend the cenote tour with Carlos! We saw such amazingly beautiful sights that we would not have been able to go to on our own. Carlos is a true expert and wonderfully knowledgable about all things cenotes and Tulum in general. You can really tell that he has a genuine passion for the places he takes you.

Simply ‘WOW’! Charlie is an all around expert and super host. This is a once in a lifetime experience, and you will be guided my the master himself. From the beautiful cenotes, fresh mangos, and the local lunch spot— Charlie is simply the best. He guides each person at their comfort level, we had some folks that were more adventurous than others, and everyone came out having a blast. We will definitely be coming back. If you come to Tulum, this is a MUST!

I don’t know how to swim , but Carlos was honestly amazing! He was patient and was able to keep me calm (from any panic ). Carlos will make sure you are safe and you have a great time . Carlos is very friendly and punctual. I was able to complete the tour and I also learned new things about cenotes. After the cenotes we had lunch at this really authentic taco restaurant that was great way of ending the tour. You can stop looking for a cenotes tour guide and just book with Carlos you will be so happy at the end of the tour .

Wow, this experience was a 10/10. It was probably the highlight of our trip. Charlie was so friendly. He picked us up from our air bnb and took us to a good breakfast spot in town after we asked if we could stop for breakfast on the way. Snorkeling through the caves was an unreal experience. We felt like we were in a whole different world. Charlie made us feel super comfortable the entire time. The other two cenotes were very beautiful and a sight to see. We ended our trip by going to Taqueria Honorio which we suggested to Charli and he was kind enough to take us there. Amazing tacos! I highly recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed!
