Tulum, Coba and Cenote Tour from Riviera Maya
"Visiting the Mayan ruins... Coba was closed. However, our tour added Muyil in its place. When we arrived, there were no other tours there, making the experience even more special. Even though Coba, the ruin, was not available for viewing, we had lunch in the town of Coba, bringing much needed tourist money to the community - which, I felt, was much appreciated. The tour guide was excellent. And we were on a small van, not a big bus tour! I highly recommend this tour."..."

There were unlimited drinks, the food was on point (chicken pasta was cold but still good), and the crew and the guide were excellent! We snorkeled along the reef and saw tons of fish and a few stingrays. The water was pretty murky due to a tropical storm that passed through the night before but it was still great! There was cloud cover for the trip out and while we snorkeled and the sun came out while we boated back. It caught us off guard and we all burned pretty bad, so make sure to layer up on sunscreen. A lot of sunscreen."..."
