TULUM CAVES TOUR:
Join us for an amazing day and visit two of the Riviera Maya main attractions.
Your first stop is the archaeological site of Tulum. A definite must see during your stay, these ruins are a former Mayan trade site located on a cliff overlooking the beautiful Mexican Caribbean Sea. Your expert guide will take you around and explain all about the Mayan culture and Tulum’s rich history.
Following the guided tour, you’ll have some free time to roam around by yourself or refresh yourself in the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Our second stop is a mystical underground river located in the heart of the jungle.
Discover the Mayan underworld accompanied by our knowledgeable guides. Swim in crystal clear water through caves and tunnels and admire ancient rock formations. The impressive stalactites and stalagmites, some more than a million years old, will leave you breathless.
We’ll wrap this amazing day up with a delicious, beachside lunch and some well-deserved rest and relaxation before returning to your hotel to enjoy the rest of your day.
