Our guides picked us up right on time from our hotel and we were just minutes away from our first stop at – 🐢 Turtle Bay. This is a protected Bay for the conservation of the 🐢 turtle population.

We were formally escorted by our guides into the water and enjoyed about an hour 🤿 snorkeling time, surrounded by beautiful 🐢 turtles.

We also had a few exciting brief appearances stingrays passing by!

Enjoying zip lining at Tankah

Ziplining Tankah Mexico

Tankah is an ecological reserve situated inland, approximately half an hour driving time from – Tulum. This area was once a part of an ancient Mayan city many years ago.

A beautiful reserve with a few villagers still living in the park, who maintain and treat you to a traditional outdoor lunch. Again, we were the lucky ones, arriving with no one else on the reserve during our stay.

It was a beautiful and peaceful setting, where we enjoyed zip lining, 🛶 canoeing and a lovely 🏊 swim in an open fresh water cenote.

All to ourselves, which made this private group tour even more appealing!

After enjoying a superb lunch and short break, it was time to make our way back to the town of Tulum and to the famous archaeological site of the; Tulum Ruins.

This site is known for being one of the most beautiful Mayan cities in the Yucatan Peninsula, situated along the shores of the Caribbean Sea.

Tulum Ancient City Ruins

Tulum Site Ruins

Our guide {Luis}, led us on an informative walking tour of the Ruins, offering detailed information on the history of the site and its people inhabiting the city during that time.

A wonderful tour that should not be missed when visiting the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

A great way to end a wonderful day and tour with Mayans’ Adventures. This Cool Tour is one the entire family can enjoy and I simply cannot stress enough the advantage of taking a private small group tour, compared to the larger big bus tours offered.

When you go as group, the overall cost is not much more than larger bus tours and the quality of tour is far superior!
