Immerse yourself into Mayan culture with a Private Cancun Underground River Tour!
Our private Tulum and Cenote tour gives you the chance to immerse yourself in two of the Riviera Maya’s top destinations: the archaeologically significant Tulum ruins and the area’s famous cenotes. Our guides will take you deep into the heart of the Cancun jungle, where the ancient and fascinating world of the pre-Columbian, Mayan culture comes alive in stunning ruins standing guard over the blue waters of the Caribbean. After you stroll through history, you’ll swim in the crystal water of the Mayan underground cenotes in a private half-day tour that packs a lot in and is sure to leave you breathless.
Travel Back to the 13th Century in Tulum
The vibrant history and culture of the Mayan civilization come alive as you stroll around and through some of the most well-preserved and majestic ruins in Mexico. Your knowledgeable, bilingual guides will open your eyes to the past as they share not only facts about the Mesoamerican civilization that once occupied these lands, but also colorful stories of what life in the past was really like.
Tulum was a city with a purpose - a thriving seaport that traded in jade and turquoise - but it is also shrouded in mystery. It was the only Mayan city built on the coast and important enough to be one of the few protected by a wall, yet we don’t know how long it was inhabited. Many of its buildings were built so that their orientation coincided with the movements of the stars, though it’s not clear why this is the case.
Perhaps spending time investigating Tulum’s mighty limestone seawall that has stood for nearly a thousand years or the Castillo perched on the edge of a 12-meter cliff will inspire you to hypothesize about why the inhabitants needed such protection. Or perhaps you’ll just bask in the beauty of the murals in the Temple of the Frescoes. After all, these questions and others have remained unanswered despite an in-depth study by archeologists.
Explore Tulum’s Underground Rivers
After you immerse yourself in the rich Mayan history at Tulum, we’ll take you and your group to explore some of Mexico's most beautiful and expansive underground caves. Cenotes are pristine underground rivers and pools formed millions of years ago when the waters receded from the Yucatan Peninsula. What was left behind was a network of fascinating cave formations, including impressive stalactites and stalagmites, and other intricate and ancient rock formations.
Your Private Cancun Underground River tour guide will take you into these cave formations with all safety gear to walk through tunnels and into caverns that will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. And once you’ve seen all there is to see in the cenotes, you mull over all the wonders you have witnessed in just one day.
