Private Snorkeling Tour in 3 Cenotes

You will never experience anything like the cenotes of the Riviera Maya. These underground bodies of water have been formed by rainwater eroding limestone over countless centuries. The Yucatán Peninsula is scarce when it comes to fresh water rendering the cenotes as crucial to the survival of the Mayan culture!

Select your 3 Cenotes!

Our 3 cenotes tour is completely customizable to you. Our experienced guides will allow you to choose from the list below in which cenotes you want to swim and snorkel. No matter which cenotes you choose to experience, you will see a new attraction. No cenotes are the same and the formations and views are just as beautiful in any and all of them. We can guarantee no matter where you choose to spend your time, you’ll have an amazing experience.

Cenote Nicte Ha: Swim into the clear waters and discover a hidden jungle paradise, where you can snorkel and marvel at beautiful lily flowers and playful schools of small fish. With a small cave that overlooks the entrance to the underground river.

Cenote Jaguar: Embark on an exhilarating adventure! Cliff jumping and zip line await you. A captivating open-air cenote surrounded by lush vegetation, where you can also easily access and swim.

Casa Cenote: a hidden gem mixing fresh water and the Caribbean Sea, where you can swim and snorkel through its mangrove channels and spot lots of schools of fish and birds.

Cenote Taak bi Ha: a small natural cave cenote nestled in the heart of the Mayan jungle, Swim and snorkel to marvel at stunning stalactites and stalagmites.

Cenote Dos Ojos: Venture into the fascinating Cenote Dos Ojos, renowned for its breathtaking cave system, offering a unique snorkeling experience amid impressive stalactites and a vibrant ecosystem . We won’t miss the Bat Cave (if water level allow the access)!

Cenote Eden Garden: Known for its natural beauty, this open-air cenote offers clear turquoise waters surrounded by lush greenery, creating a serene and picturesque environment for visitors to enjoy swimming and snorkeling. (this cenote is closed on Saturdays)

Yal Ku Lagoon: The lagoon’s interface with the ocean results in an intermingling of fresh and saltwater. There is abundant marine life visible, including many varieties of small colorful fish. The mangroves are particularly impressive and worth viewing. Their ecological importance and natural beauty make them a highlight of the area.

Cenote Pet Cemetery: Step into the eerie realm of the Pet Cemetery, an intriguing cenote adorned with mystical rock formations and a hauntingly beautiful atmosphere, inviting you to unravel its mysterious tales while enjoying a memorable swim in its tranquil waters (there is an extra cost per person if you select this cenote).

Cenote Chikin Ha: Swim and snorkel in an open-air cenote with lots of fish and small turtles, and a small cave cenote. At the end, we visit a cenote used for Mayan ceremonies. (there is an extra cost per person if you select this cenote, this cenote is closed on Saturdays).

    Had the best time with our tour guide Arturo! He was so thoughtful and took the time to show us all the beautiful views and photo spots. I will definitely tour with this group again!

  2. Melody

    Great Experience- Highly Recommend
    Awesome experience. My family (wife and I, and 4 kids, ages 10-18) visited 3 cenotes and had a blast. Beautiful setting and scenery, with a zip line and cliff jumping, but the snorkeling through cenotes/caves, seeing the incredible rock formations, was the highlight. Highly recommend Absolute Adventure Tours. They provide a first class experience, start to finish, and our tour guide (Josh) may be our favorite for any vacation. Knowledgeable, but also super nice and fun. We will book a tour with him for a different set of cenotes next time we visit Mexico

  3. Natalie

    A perfect day! What a perfect day!
    We booked a private tour to 3 cenotes, and opted for transport from the Valentin Imperial just south of Puerto Morelos.
    Arturo was our guide and Omar was driving. They arrived promptly and explained the cenote options on the drive down towards the Tulum area. We had a very comfortable ride and chose Dos Ojos, Taak Bi Ha and Nicte Ha, which all happened to be quite close to each other on the same road.
    It took around an hour to get to the park. We opted for an early pick up and avoided the mid day crowds. Arturo was an excellent guide through all 3 cenotes and Omar navigated us expertly through the jungle roads. Arturo has a wealth of information about the history of the cenotes and the surrounding areas. He offered to take pictures of us throughout the tour and was always helpful with our snorkel gear and equipment.
    We stopped for a nice lunch, and had plenty of time to explore each cenote with Arturo both leading the way and also giving us some time to explore the more open areas on our own.
    Dos Ojos and Taak Bi Ha are more underground while Nicte Ha is a lush open cenote. We enjoyed each one and it’s so hard to pick a favorite as they all have their own character and charm and are all incredibly beautiful!
    We had a memorable day and appreciate Arturo and Omar for their expertise and hospitality. Claire confirmed all our trip details via email before had and was very helpful as well. Highly recommended team!

  4. Diamond

    Arturo was great, we thoroughly enjoyed our morning with him. Did not feel like we were getting hassled or rushed at all. He took time to get to know us and we were happy to learn about him as well. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience! Highly recommend!

  5. Katherina

    Wonderful Cenote Tour with Lunch. Was more than pleased with our private tour. Our guide was Joshua and driver was Carlos. We were picked up promptly and had good communication before the trip to plan best. The tour was awesome and with a lot of flexibility to pick best for our family.
    We traveled with my husband and I and our 10 year old son. He loved the Jaguar cenote because of the zip line and jumping platforms.
    Joshua was patient and knowledgeable both about the history and ecology of the cenotes.
    Lunch was surprisingly good and a wonderful way to end our half day tour before heading back to the hotel.
    I would recommend this tour and the lunch.

  6. Stanley

    Joshua was an outstanding tour guide! He was very professional and had an awesome personality that engaged you from the moment he spoke. We were excited to learn so much history about the Cenotes we visited! Incredible trip! We would recommend Joshua as your tour guide as well as Carlos who was a great driver! We would definitely do this same trip again!!

  7. Sabrina

    We booked the 3 Cenote private tour & the process was easy & the company very responsive! Joshua was our guide & Juan Carlos was our driver. Great service, knowledgeable, helpful & fun to spend the day with!! Would absolutely recommend this company & Joshua as your guide!!!!

  8. Marie

    We had an amazing time exploring cenotes with Alex of Absolute Adventure Mexico! Everything was excellent- the transportation, access to the cenotes, equipment and lunch. We felt well-cared for the entire time and learned so much about the beautiful Mayan culture. Having all the details taken care of really allowed our family of four to relax and enjoy the beauty of the region. This trip was worth every penny and I’d recommend to everyone! It was truly the highlight of our weeklong vacation in Quintana Roo.

  9. Scotty

    Omar and Alex were our driver and tour guide for the private, 3 cenote snorkeling tour with lunch. It was a great experience. Alex spoke perfect English and was very knowledgable about the local culture. The cenotes were awesome, and Alex was great at guiding us through each of them. Highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants some cenote variety.

  10. Laura

    Amazing experience with Alex visiting 3 cenotes with our family. Not only was Alex able to educate us on the cenotes but he also educated us on the Mayan civilization! They picked us up directly at the house we were staying at and Carlos was an amazing driver. The communication with Claire was clear and done in a timely manner. For an extra cost we were able to do the pet cemetery cenote as one of our 3 and it was well worth it. 2 years ago my daughter and son in law used this company and loved them so much that we chose not even to look at other tour companies this time, and once again they did not disappoint. During the tour they had cold water and cervesa in the van if we wanted it and took us to a local restaurant for delicious food (try the shrimp tacos)! Highly recommend using this company!

  11. Daniela

    My husband and I did a private denote snorkeling tour with Alex and Omar. It was the highlight of our trip. It was so nice to have a private guide teach us all about each cenote as well as about the Mayan culture. Alex was so knowledgeable we were really impressed with all he taught us. Omar made sure we got to each spot safely and that our belongings were safe in the van. We had an awesome authentic Mayan lunch which was such a great treat. We will definitely be recommending absolute adventure to our family and friends

  12. Cristina

    We had a great experience with Absolute Adventure. The weather did not cooperate on the day of our tour and we were able to change it to the following day. The guide was great and the experience highly enjoyable!

  13. Monica

    An Absolute Cenote Adventure
    Arturo and Rodrigo were fantastic hosts! Hospitable and so knowledgeable. Their knowledge of the cenotes and wildlife added to the tours value. We loved how each cenote had its unique beauty. We highly recommend Absolute Adventure to anyone who is interested if n seeing and visiting these beautiful locations of Mexico!

  14. Lyrics72000

    Wow what a great experience and highlight of our trip. Arturo and rodrigo are great guides. Very knowledgeable about Cenotes and the area. We got to enjoy 3 different cenotes with different experiences at each. Lunch provided was local food and very tasty. Absolutely Loved it and can’t wait to come back and use absolute adventures again.

  15. Dina

    Had a great tour guide and overall great experience private is the way to go! Was alone the whole time

  16. Shirley B

    We had such a lovely tour. Arturo our guide taught us a lot about the cenotes. We were in Dos Ojos in the morning and we had the place all to our selves! We visited 3 very different cenotes and even did some ziplining. A week ago we did a tour with another company (not a private tour), but I would highly recommand the private one, worth every Penny! Thanks Arturo and off course our excellent driver!

  17. Raymond

    It was a great experience with our guide Arturo and we enjoyed the 3 cenotes very much! He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided wonderful recommendations on which cenotes to visit to get the best experience. Would highly recommend this tour if you’re looking for an experience you’ll never forget!:)

  18. Jennifer H

    We did the 3 cenote with lunch and Arturo was our guide. Arturo definitely is living his best life. He was a great guide full of info on the cenotes with a witty sense of humor. He was delightful. Definitely no regrets about booking the excursion. It was well worth it and we thoroughly enjoyed Arturo as our guide. Would definitely book with them again it was an amazing experience. Arturo!!! Arturo!! Arturo!! Thank you..😊🥰😊

  19. Amy

    We had the pleasure of touring three different cenotes with Arturo (and Carlos as our driver) in early June and loved every second! What an incredible day of adventuring and exploring the beauty of these cenotes! We arrived to the Dos Ojos Cenotes park and had our first cenote (Jaguar) entirely to ourselves! Nothing like a 7 meter jump into an empty cenote at 8:30am to invigorate you and wake you right up! We loved the serenity of our first cenote and even got to zip line twice (again, with the entire place to ourselves!) We loved the crystal clear waters of Cenote Nicte-Ha and getting to snorkel and do more platform jumping. Our final cenote was Dos Ojos. What a different world! Ending our day exploring the cave and seeing the majesty of the rather hidden bat cave was the cherry on top of a perfect day. Having a private guide was spectacular and something we valued a lot. Arturo was knowledgeable and so great to get to know throughout the day. We loved chatting with him and sharing a delicious lunch together. The authentic meal at the end of a day of swimming and exploring was just what we needed! Thank you for an incredible and unforgettable experience on our Cancun visit!

  20. Joe

    We did a tour this week with Arturo and our family had a blast. We did a tour with the company a few years ago and decided to return because the last one was so fun. Because we’d seen some of the cenotes the first trip, Arturo went out of his way to take us to new cenotes that we hadn’t seen before, except for Pet Cemetery, which we wanted to experience again. Arturo is super friendly and made the trip a fun day for our family.

  21. Tyler

    Arturo and Omar were awesome. Very friendly and informative. We did the tour where you pick 3 Cenotes and stop at a restaurant. It was a lot of fun. Highly recommend.

  22. Stefanie

    Wow! We booked this private tour so we could take our time exploring the ceynotes….Arturo was fabulous! He was very a very kind, authentic, and knowledgeable tour guide. Arturo took the time to understand our interests to help recommend the ceynotes we’d enjoy….although they’re so spectacular we’d enjoy any of them! We highly recommend Absolute Adventures to anyone and especially families!

    Great Communication, Great Tour Guide, Great Tour!
    We did the private 3 Cenotes tour with Arturo and he was a fantastic guide for the day. There was no act with Arturo, he was just a genuinely nice person and we enjoyed his company and expertise when educating us about each Cenotes and the wildlife we saw. The Cave Cenotes (Taak Bi Ha) was amazing (beware the water is chilly) but it truly is breathtaking. Too bad there were so many dumb Instagram models posing for 30 pictures in every spot though. No reflection on Absolute Adventure or Arturo, just the world we live in I guess. The lunch we were taken to at Juanitas was the best meal we had our entire trip! I will also say communication from the company was very good. Everything was a breeze with this tour company and we were all very satisfied as a group of 10. Thanks again Arturo and if we come back we will look you up!

  24. Kelly S

    Arturo and Rodrigo were great! The trip to tour the cenotes was fun and informative. We appreciated their local knowledge of knowing great spots that were not very busy. And the lunch at Juanitas was so delicious!! Our entire group of 10 including teens and kids had a blast! Thank you! Highly recommend!

  25. Lillian

    The absolute best tour we’ve been on so far!! We went to their website and saw that we could choose 3 cenotes of our choice to visit. We had a cenote all to ourselves in the morning, and it was very private which fit our needs and speed (we wanted lots of swim time and photo opportunities). It was supposed to be a busy time, but for some reason we had great timing in most of the cenotes. Even during our visit in Dos Ojos which receives heavy traffic, we had the bat cave all to ourselves! our guide Arturo was so kind and accommodating! We had great conversations and such a great experience. I was just traveling with my brother and we did not know anything about Tulum (it’s our first time here and in Mexico), we felt safe and taken cared of the entire time. They provided us with the proper SANITIZED gear and such great insight on the cenotes and Mayan culture. The lunch was great as well. Will definitely book with them again for future private tours!!

  26. Kimberly

    My husband and I went on a private tour of three cenotes. Our guide Juan/ JJ was fantastic! We were the only two people at all three cenotes. Lunch was so good.We would recommend a private tour over a group tour for the best experience. Thank you for outstanding service and great food.Along with a history lessons and we even got to see the jaguar ruin. My husband wanted to go see the ruins

  27. Quirk

    We did the three cenotes tour with Dulce (our guide) and our driver (whose name I forgot, I’m sorry!!). It was an out of this world experience and we can’t recommend it enough. The three cenotes we chose were Casa Cenote, Jaguar, and Pet Semetary. We wanted to get different experiences from each cenote and felt like these would provide that. We got started with an early visit to Casa Cenote, and being there early is worth it! Other than one other swimmer, we were the only ones on the way out, and we got to see the famous crocodile up close! The fish here are large and you can see the different layer of salt and fresh water. It was beautiful, and relaxing (other than quietly swimming past the crocodile!)

    The second stop was at Jaguar, and this was definitely the more adventurous Cenote, three levels of cliff jumping (from ~1.5 meters to 5 meters), a zipline, and a little bit of exploring you can do. There isn’t as much wildlife or cenote area to explore, but still a cool one to check out and add to your experience!

    We stopped for lunch before our third cenote, and it was delicious! Dulce ate with us and we got to learn a bit more about her, her background, and ask questions about Mayan culture and the cenotes.

    The third cenote, Pet Semetary was also incredible and very different, we got to explore a darker cave, that was connected to the massive underground river! Dulce kept us separated from other groups, so we got to enjoy the quiet and the sights all on our own.

    A truly incredible experience. We felt very safe COVID wise, and we really enjoyed getting to meet Dulce and our driver. They clearly were passionate about what they do and Dulce was very knowledgeable. If you’re looking for a tour group to work with we couldn’t recommend Absolute Adventure more!

  28. Tracy

    We booked private cenote tour and could have been happier. JJ was our guide. We went to 3 underground cenotes, and one open cenote. The colors were fabulous, the experience of snorkeling through passages made you feel like an explorer. Snorkels and flashlights provided. Lunch was great. If you have kids with solid swim skills. They will LOVE this.

  29. H81

    We had a great tour of 3 cenotes with Juan Diaz this week. Our transportation was smooth, all equipment was provided, Juan’s advice in choosing 3 cenotes was helpful, and his guidance was fantastic. Highly recommend this tour!

  30. Family P

    We actually were taken to 3 Cenotes; all different and fabulous in their own way.
    We would have never found these on our own nor known the best way to see them.
    We are a family of 6, ranging in age from 76 to 22, and everyone was thrilled.
    Our tour guide, Manuel, was outstanding. We really lucked out! He knew where to take us to avoid crowds and give us a fabulous experience.
    Friendly and informative, Manuel really put everyone at ease and made sure that we all had a fabulous time. He also had wonderful stories and facts that gave background to everything we did.
    Thank you, Manuel and Absolute Adventures, for this incredible excursion!

  31. Bradly

    Best cenote snorkeling trip!

  32. Jim

    Our guide made sure we had the best day and got to experience the most of every cenote, he was full of information about each location we visited.

  33. Sean

    We have a wonderful time with Arturo, our guide. He took great care of us, and the tour of the Cenotes were fantastic! Highly recommended for families.

  34. Lisa

    Our tour guide was amazing! Juan was personable, friendly and made us feel comfortable. We didn’t have to wait on any lines, he showed us parts of the cenotes we would have never seen without our guide. These tours are great and suit everyone, do not hesitate to hire Absolute Adventure!

  35. Kim

    Juan was our tour guide! He was very informative and so funny! We had a great time. He made an already interesting trip even better. Not sure if you can request a guide, but if you can ask for Juan, you won’t be disappointed. The cenotes were just amazing!
