In this excursion you can get to know the ancient Mayan city of Tulum,famous for its exceptional location in front of the coast of the Caribbean Sea.
Then go for a boat ride an hour where you can see the site of Tulum from the sea and snorkelling on the second largest barrier reef in the world.,fr
Finally, we will enjoy a few moments on a beach that is considered one of the most beautiful in the world.
As we go on, we will get to know a small Mayan community in the jungle, where a refreshing bath awaits us in the crystal waters of the community’s cenote.
When we are finished, our hosts will delight us with a typical lunch, but first, you will have the opportunity-for those who want to-to learn how to prepare your own corn tortilla and at the same time we will get to know a bit more about the local customs and life.
To finish, we will visit the beautiful beaches of Akumal, where will be able to again go snorkeling , but this time surrounded by free sea turtles. However, it is very important to remember that it is forbidden to touch them, as these calm creatures are in their natural habitat and we will only be respectful observers of nature.
With a bit of luck, we can see manta rays and coral reefs.
