Snorkeling in Cenote and Swim with Turtles Private Tour

The ideal snorkeling tour gathering swimming in the ocean and in a cenote! This private snorkeling tour offers an amazing experience that is perfect for families, kids and group of friends. With this private tour, you will receive the opportunity to snorkel right alongside the gentle giant of the ocean, the green sea turtle. After a dip in the ocean, our guides will transport you to the cenote you have chosen for a different snorkeling experience. You have the luxury of picking any cenote on our list. We have a variety of spots that embody a cave experience or that of a natural, open cenote.

While snorkeling alongside a sea turtle may seem extreme, they are some of the gentlest creatures in the ocean. They are truly majestic creatures that guide through the water with ease. Also, if you get lucky, you will be able to see a few stingrays swimming just above the ocean floor. Again, don’t worry, these animals are harmless.

Moving from the ocean to a smaller body of water in the jungle, the cenote. No matter what cenote you choose, you are sure to experience a fun-filled day. Every cenote is unique. As you snorkel through the water, you will see beautiful formations and landscapes you have likely never before seen.

This tour is completely adaptable for snorkelers of all ages and skill level. Our guides will play to your strengths and are happy to provide snorkeling tips. Any and all equipment you need will be provided by your guides. We will end the tour with a great lunch at a local Mexican restaurant before bringing you back to your hotel.

We hope that you will join us on our swim with turtle tour partnered with snorkeling in a cenote. We know you will have a memorable experience!

  1. Nikki

    We had a perfect day today! Our family swam with sea turtles, explored a beautiful cenote & ended the afternoon with a delicious lunch! Our guide was wonderful.

  2. Francis

    Highly recommend these guys. On holiday from Ireland. Got Joshua and Omar to bring us snorkelling for turtles and then cenotes. We were picked up on time. Clean vehicle. Water . The guys are very friendly and knowledgable. Nothing was rushed and I recommend this group highly

  3. Kerry

    Great tour with very helpful guides. Would definitely recommend

  4. Emilee

    Simply incredible.
    Words cannot express how truly wonderful this tour was. Arturo was such a nice person and a great guide! Starting early was absolutely the best decision. We saw many turtles on our snorkel, and beat the crowds, who were just arriving when we were leaving. It was a breathtaking experience. We went the relaxing cenote – the one with all the fauna – and it was so beautiful it felt otherworldly. Absolutely stunning. We did many tours in PDC, and have travelled all over the world, and this experience will forever standout for how gorgeous it was and for amazing Arturo was. If I could give this 100 stars I would.

  5. Debon

    We did the private tour of snorkeling with sea turtles in Akumal Bay, cenote Taak Bi Ha, and lunch with our guide Arturo. The transportation was clean, safe, and on time to pick us up from our hotel. Communication with the business was easy and efficient. Most of all Arturo was kind and knowledgeable about Tulúm the cenotes and safely guided us through all facets of the day. This day was a memory for the books.

  6. OnAir677651

    Amazing!!
    We did a half-day private tour snorkeling with the sea turtles and visiting a cenote with Arturo as our guide. He was outstanding, and our experiences were fantastic! The cenote we visited had only one other family there and we enjoyed the jumping platforms and the zip line! I highly recommend the experience and Arturo in particular as a guide!

  7. Bob

    Great time, booked two different days

  8. Chelsey

    Amazing experience!
    Fantastic tour. Our guide Joshua was amazing, the cenote (stalagmites and stalagmites was the highlight of our entire trip. Highly recommend Absolute adventure private tours, we passed by large tour groups that looked miserable, but these guys handled everything so we had absolutely nothing to worry about but hearing the history and stories of the area. 10/10!

  9. Krishnan

    Excellent service. Highly recommend !!

  10. Julie

    Family of 6 adults and we had a great time, saw lots of turtles, rays and even squid. Arrived just before it started getting busy. After the snorkelling we went to a cave cenote which was simply stunning. We loved swimming g about in the fresh water cave. Great day out and would highly recommend m. Booking super simple, communication great, nice air cones van and super friendly tour guide Juan who took care of everything..

  11. Kmnicholetti48

    We had the best time on our private tour! Juan was the absolute best tour guide! Very friendly and knowledgeable. We had the best day with him. So warm and welcoming to the point where it was almost like we had been friends for a long time! We saw lots of sea turtles and wildlife. The cenote was stunning and the lunch was absolutely delicious! Juan made sure we were safe and comfortable the whole time and never at any point did anything feel rushed, it was quite relaxing. Omar the driver kept got us to our destination safely and was very friendly. I would 1000% recommend Juan and Omar as your tour team. Everyone should book with this amazing tour company. I am going to tell everyone I know about this. We had a blast that was unforgettable. Whenever we come back to Mexico, we will be doing another tour for sure!

  12. Jill

    It was an all around wonderful experience. Juan and Gregorio were excellent and I would highly recommend them. It was a perfect day.

  13. Emer

    Absolutely amazing – Arturo and Gregorio were fantastic! They were right on time, moved us from activity to activity promptly while giving us plenty of time to enjoy the day, and are clearly well liked and respected by everyone we encountered. Arturo was so wonderful, funny, and kind. Highly knowledgeable about the cenotes and encouraged us to explore the beautiful sites fully. Would recommend to anyone looking for a group tour service!

  14. Morgan

    Very organized and enjoyable experience! We went snorkeling and swimming with turtles, swam in a cenote, and had an authentic Mexican lunch. We had Arturo as our guide and we received a private ride from our Airbnb directly to each activity. He educated us on history, safety, and the wildlife in the area; I highly recommend this company and our group of 8 had an amazing time!

  15. David

    Absolut fabulous day out!

  16. Bill

    Excellent tour of turtle snorkling tour. Saw sea turtles, sting rays. Then on to the cenotes. Beautiful caves. Our tour guide Joshua was five star. He was so knowledgeable about the history of the area and nature. Gojo was our driver and was an excellent guide. They were both patient and we never felt rushed.

  17. Renee

    Best day ever!
    This excursion was undoubtedly one of the highlights of our trip, providing my sisters and me with a fantastic private experience. The tour operators exhibited excellent organization, offering all the necessary information well in advance so we were well-prepared before departure. At 7:30 am sharp, they picked us up at our hotel in a private van, and a 35-minute ride took us to our first destination. Our tour guide, Joshua, equipped us with life vests and snorkel masks, and we soon found ourselves in the ocean, swimming out to observe sea turtles. We had the pleasure of spotting four sea turtles, along with starfish, barracuda, and a stingray. While it was amazing to see the sea turtles, it’s important to note that this part of the tour requires strong swimming skills.
    For our next stop, we had the option to choose from one of four cenotes. Following Joshua’s recommendation, we visited Cenote Nicte-Ha, which was truly breathtaking. Joshua’s expertise proved invaluable as the cenote was a marvel to behold. The cold yet refreshing water, combined with the stunning surroundings, left us in awe. Joshua even kindly took photos of my sisters and me, capturing the moment perfectly. We could have easily spent the entire day at the cenote; it was that remarkable.
    After our cenote adventure, we indulged in a delicious Mexican lunch, with a selection of six different entrees and soft drinks. This day was nothing short of perfection, and by 12:30 pm, we were back at our Tulum hotel. This tour was exceptional, and I can’t wait to experience it again when I return to Tulum.

  18. Jane

    Stunning turtles and bright blue cenote
    Juan was the perfect tour guide – so knowledgeable about Mexican history and also really helpful answering extra questions we had about our trip. We loved getting to know him. The experience might seem expensive, but you get a lot for your money – barely anyone at the beautiful cenote, and would recommend the early turtle swim as that was also uncrowded and very special. You can see turtles, sting rays and starfish close up as well as coral. Lunch was also delicious in a great local spot. If you want to get a lot out of your morning, would highly recommend this tour. Thanks so much to our driver too, and all the lovely people we met!

  19. Rachel

    Rodrigo (driver) and Alex (guide) were both amazing and we had such a great time with them. It was truly the highlight of our trip. They taught us so much about the area and made us feel well cared for. Could not recommend the tour or the employees enough!

  20. Hayley

    Amazing Experience
    My son and I went on this trip as he had always wanted to swim with turtles. We were very lucky to have Juan (JJ) again for this trip. We were greeted with a smile and it was lovely to have the same guide. Again we arrived at Akumel early before all the crowds and we were handed over to our turtle expert Israel. He took us out just the two of us to where the turtles were. He looked after us especially me as I was a little nervous about snorkelling. Also I had my iPhone in a plastic underwater case. He put me at ease that the phone case would be up to the job and took all our lovely videos and photos, which we will treasure forever. We were lucky to see Turtles including an albino one which are very rare, also saw a puffer fish and baby squid and also a reef with lots of beautiful coral and fish! It was lovely to have the sea and turtles to ourselves and when we got out of the sea the crowds of people arrived! JJ then took care of tipping Israel for us for an excellent job. We then headed to a cenote JJ gave us a choice and we headed for an underground cenote. The steps were very narrow to enter but he looked after us both. He then took us snorkelling in the cenote and took some lovely video and photos for us including the bats!!! Would definitely recommended this private tour and JJ who was lovely and patient too.

  21. Chris

    Perfect day out!
    We have just spent a fantastic morning with Juan our guide and Carlos our driver, an early pick up to avoid the crowds, we spent over 40 minutes in the water at akumal and saw lots of turtles then swam in an open Cenote which was amazing, followed by a lovely lunch at a friendly local restaurant, the tacos were awesome, let Juan order your food, our son has autism and adhd so tours can be difficult sometimes, Juan took it all in his stride adapting the timings to suit our needs, he even kept josh entertained whilst myself and my wife enjoyed the Cenote swim, we will definitely use them again

  22. Melissa

    We had an amazing experience today on our tour with Arturo and Carlos! It was so nice having Carlos driving and Arturo as the tour guide to talk with in the van! Arturo was very welcoming, warm and inviting and took very good care of us! He was very patient with our kids and was a wealth of local knowledge! The experience of Akumal and the Cenote was perfect, we loved every minute of our time on this tour! Book now, don’t wait!! We will be returning customers!

  23. Tracey

    Excellent! Grear trip that was so much better than a group trip… private was indeed private. Joshua was a great guide & even had lunch with us which allowed us to hear more about Mexican culture…
    Apologies but I’ve forgotten the drivers name – but he was exceptional also – with drinks on hand after each stop!!! A brilliant day … much recommended.

  24. Beth

    We had the loveliest day snorkeling with the turtles and enjoying swimming in a cenote. Alex was wonderful! He was so informative explaining much about the area, history, culture etc. He was so pleasant and accommodating as well, answering any questions we had. He truly made the day extra special. We saw turtles in Akumel and many fish in the reef. We were fortunate enough to have the cenote to ourselves and immensely enjoyed the beauty and relaxing time snorkeling there as well. After, was a delicious lunch at a local family run restaurant. All in all, an exceptional day!

  25. Christina

    Highly recommend this private tour! Our tour guide was fantastic!
    What a wonderful experience! Perfect private tour for a nervous swimmer like me. First stop was snorkelling in Akumel where we saw several sea turtles, including babies. Two of which came up for air within arms length. So close you could actually hear the turtle inhale!
    We also saw a couple of stingrays. Was nice to see these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat.
    Next was a stop at the Nicte Ha Cenote where we able to relax, snorkel and enjoy this refreshing water in a gorgeous setting. Lastly, we stopped for an authentic Mexican lunch. Enjoyed the food, ambience and company of our guide Alex.
    Alex was a wealth of information. His love of the Mayan history and people was evident. He appears to love his job and does it well!
    A special shout out to our driver Omar. While Alex was sharing information Omar navigated the busy highway allowing us to arrive at our destination safely and stress free.
    Highly recommend!

  26. Adventure3062

    We had fun snorkeling and seeing sea turtles and lots of fishes! They actually set you up with a local guide to find them and provide you with everything you need (snork equipment and life vest). Arturo, our guide watched over our stuff in the meantime. Then Arturo, took us to the Taak bi Ha cenote and gave us wetsuits so we wouldn’t be cold. It was such a wonderful place. He explained how the cave formed and showed us some nice spots. This was an amazing cenote, would absolutely recommend! This is a great company, felt safe, the mini van was clean and all the guides are very friendly.

  27. KATE

    We had a lovely time with our guide Dulce and our driver Carlos. We saw green sea turtles, stingrays and various smaller fish (including a young Dory fish) when snorkelling in Tsuuk Akumal. Going early helps to avoid the crowds and it was only getting busier when we were leaving. We then had a choice of cenotes to go to and opted for Nicte-Ha, a smallish open cenote with a bit of side caves, as we’d been to various enclosed cenotes already. Nicte-Ha had great visibility, enabling us to snorkel among waterlilies and tiny fish. As it was still early, for most of our time there we were the only people in the cenote. The local lunch was great and Dulce helped us order a nice variety platter to try various types of tacos. As sunscreen is not allowed in Tsuuk Akumal or in the cenote, I’d recommend asking for a wetsuit, especially if you’re prone to burning. They have them in the car and they will shield your back and upper limbs from the sun while snorkelling as well as keep you warm in the cooler waters of the cenote for longer.

  28. Jason

    Alex ( guide) and Rodriguez ( driver) were great. We had a excellent time on our private tour with my family. It was very good! we did the turtle snorkeling adventure with the cenote!

  29. Bobby

    Excellent private tour. Amazing driver and guide that picked us up right from resort. On time! Extremely friendly and knowledgeable ! Felt very safe the entire time! Can’t give a high enough recommendation for 1 or 2 couples or a family !

  32. Libby

    This was an excellent tour! I felt very safe and the tour guides Alex and Omar were absolutely excellent. Very safe, very freindly and it could not have been a better experience. Will definitely go again!

  33. Stephen

    Alex and Omar were amazing!!! We saw two amazing wild turtles and went to a beautiful underground centre. The lunch was great. Alex was a wonderful guide, we had so much fun!!!

  34. Sara

    This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! I went with a group of 7 to Akumal Bay where we saw 4 turtles, 3 stingrays and a bunch of fish. After that, we went to Taak Bi Ha cenote which was so beautiful and probably one of the coolest things I’ll ever see! We finished with lunch which was provided by the tour. The tour guide, Dulce, was so nice and informative about everything. Our van driver, Rodrigo, was also super nice and did a great job getting us there and back. I would recommend this tour to anyone! What a great experience!

  35. Layne

    So much fun! Worth the money, Arturo was an amazing guide! He has a lot of experience and knowledge with the area!! Makes you feel comfortable and accommodated!

  36. Russel

    Carlos was our driver and Alex our guide for our private tour. We thoroughly enjoyed both experiences, as well as learning more about the Mayan culture. We’d highly recommend Absolute Adventure and the Alex/Carlos combo.

  37. Samantha

    Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable. I love that it was a private tour and we didn’t have to be with random people. We swam with turtles and saw many turtles and other fish. Then we went to our cenote and he took a lot of pictures for us, as well as let us stay as long as we wanted, we were not rushed. We added a 2nd cenote to our tour and he knew the answer to all of our questions. Definitely recommend this company, definitely worth the money! Oh and we went to lunch after the tour and is was delicious. 10/10 experience.

  38. Amy

    My friends and I had the best day with Arturo as our guide and Omar as a our driver. Everything was organized, clean and safe. We snorkeled in Akumal Bay and swam in a beautiful Cenote that we had all to ourselves. Awesome Mexican lunch to end the day! Private tour was totally worth it! Outstanding!

  39. lol1127

    We had a wonderful day! Our tour guide, Arturo was very knowledgeable and personable. Swimming in the cenote was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Lunch was delicious, ambience was beautiful. Highly recommend!

  40. Samantha

    Wonderful experience – can’t recommend this highly enough! My partner and I had a private trip to Akumal beach and Dos Ojos cenotes. Alex (guide) and Omar (driver) were super knowledgeable about the location and Mayan history. They were right on time picking us up from our hotel. We got to the snorkeling spot early so there were only a few other groups in the water when we started. It was very nice having a guide just to ourselves since most of the groups we saw has 10+ people. We saw a few sea turtles and had fun snorkeling at the beautiful beach. Next, we went to the cenotes and chose Nikte Ha (you can choose from three). It was an absolutely gorgeous place with crystal clear water & water lilies. I would recommend bringing bug spray since the mosquitoes were out in full force in the jungle. Lunch on the way back was great (and they had vegetarian options) and we were back at our hotel by early afternoon. Overall, a wonderful experience thanks to Alex & Omar. I highly recommend this private tour for a personalized, once in a lifetime experience!!

  41. Bryana L.

    We had an amazing day with Arturo snorkeling with the turtles in Akumal Bay and visiting a cenote. Everything was seamless from start to finish with booking. Excellent communication. Day of they were on time, with a big, clean, well air conditioned van for our family and Arturo, our guide, couldn’t have been better. He was super friendly and knowledgeable. We went to an incredible cenote and were the only ones there in the morning. So magical. Could not have been a better day!

  42. Lisa

    Great day ! They handled our group of 20 without any problems . Cenotes underground were amazing . Lunch was best we have had this trip . Sea turtles babies and large turtles in natural habitat. Great day for our family and friends

  43. Jennifer

    We were a party of 3. We loved snorkeling with the sea turtles and the cenote was amazing. Alex our guide was the best! He had so much knowledge and taught us a lot about the history of the area. Lunch was wonderful too. We had an amazing time. We started off early in the morning and we beat all the crowds. It was perfect. Alex was an excellent guide for our trip. I highly recommend Alex and Absolute Adventures.

  44. Brittney

    Great time! Very knowledgeable and patient staff!

  45. Kimberly

    This was a definitely a very fun experience!!! It was my first time trying all these new activities & Arturo which was our guider was supper nice & awesome. He made made everything supper fun & I liked that he went above & beyond for us to feel comfortable & made us feel safe. I would definitely come back again.

  46. Christina

    Excellent guide and driver. Fun experience. They took great care of us. We saw turtles while snorkeling at Akumal. We experienced two gorgeous cenotes. We ate a yummy, authentic, Mexican lunch.

  47. Chelsea

    Amazing from start to finish. Arturo picked us up right on schedule and we were off to an incredibly fun day! He had a cooler with water, soda, and beer for us. We went to snorkel with turtles (which was amazing), then had lots of cenote options, an amazing lunch, and easy drive home. Arturo was so kind, knowledgeable, and fun! We could not recommend this enough!

  48. Mya

    Amazing experience! We had a great guide (Arturo) and just had a wonderful day overall. Great lunch at the end too! The cenote visit was even more of a highlight than the turtles, which is hard to beat!

  49. Clair

    I cannot recommend this business enough. We had clear, regular contact from them prior to our excursion. They arrived on time at our hotel in an air con vehicle, with drinks on ice included in the price. Our Guide, Claire and Julian were friendly, professional and provided us with fascinating information about the area, turtles & Cenote throughout our excursion.
    It was only myself and my partner in our excursion and that made it feel even more special.
    Akumul beach, where the turtles are, is beautiful. However the Cenote was amazing. Beyond our expectations and fascinating.
    The Company went at our pace and every where we went was not crowded at all.
    We then had lunch at a beautiful location in the Jungle. Where my partner proposed to me. A perfect ending to a perfect day.
    I cannot recommend this business enough. They made the whole day magical. Thank you

  50. Nicole

    I can not say enough good about Absolute Adventure. We had one free morning on our vacation where we wanted to book an excursion to swim with turtles and see a cenote. Everything from initially booking online to day of excursion was top notch, professional and convenient. They even confirmed via text day before to confirm hotel, pick up time, etc. Day of our guide was Arturo and he was right on time waiting for us, very professional, polite and accommodating. Between him and our driver we felt safe at all times which is very important. Both the turtles and cenote Arturo recommended were incredible. Exactly what we were hoping to see. We even got to do this crazy zip line which was totally unexpected and so fun. We unfortunately had to skip the lunch to head back to our hotel for another engagement but definitely next time! Thank you Arturo and Absolute Adventure for an incredible morning we will never forget! -Nicole and Chuck from Boston

  51. Erica

    What an incredible experience with our wonderful guide Arturo!!! Every detail was perfect, professional and informative. Lunch was delicious as well!

  52. 609mya

    Amazing experience! We had a great guide (Arturo) and just had a wonderful day overall. Great lunch at the end too! The cenote visit was even more of a highlight than the turtles, which is hard to beat!

  53. Chiara

    We booked the Turtles and Cenote tour with “absolute adventure” and we had such a great time! Arturo was very kind and a perfect guide! He gave us very good recommendations and make our time the most enjoyable. We will recommend this experience with everyone.

  54. Water_

    This day trip was AMAZING. Arturo was a kind and informative guide, herding our unfocused group of 8 with apparent ease. We loved swimming with the sea turtles, which was peaceful and magical despite many other tourists there at the same time. Somehow Arturo arranged for us to spend a little extra time at the reef so that we saw sting rays and colorful fish in addition to the turtles. In all, it was a really memorable, lovely outing.
    We then went to the Pet Cemetery cenote. I wasn’t thrilled about swimming in a cave and I was wrong: it was incredible. The water was crystal clear and fresh, the cave, the rock formations fascinating. I can understand why these were considered sacred spaces – they were special places we felt lucky to see.
    In all, this outing was something we will remember as a highlight of our trip. Thank you, Arturo!

  55. Tude W

    Excellent! Arturo was a wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Definitely recommend and loved the entire experience.

  56. Lisa

    Highlight of our trip!
    Amazing! Arturo, our guide was fantastic. We swam with turtles, visited a lush and quiet Cenote (basically has it all to ourselves) and finished off the day with a cold drink and a hearty meal. It is a must do while visiting Mexico!

  57. Donnie C

    Swam with the turtles at Akumal beach and the Pet Cemetary Cenote. Best experience ever. Have been on many tours and by far the best. Guides were very personable and knowledgeable and did all they could to ensure the best experience. Saw turtles, stingray and the most amazing underground cave. Included lunch was amazing. Would highly recommend.

  58. Diana

    We absolutely loved our experience! Swimming with the sea turtles was incredible, I didn’t want to leave! We chose to visit Nicte-ha Cenote and it was all to ourselves. The most beautiful, quiet and calming spot! Arturo was the best guide! We are very grateful to have him on our wonderful adventure! 🙂 Highly recommend Absolute Adventure!

    Our group of 9 people booked a day with sea turtles and a cenote. Manuel, our tour guide spoke excellent English and had a great sense of humor. We were able to be the first group in the water when we were at Akumel to see the sea turtles and there was hardly anyone in the Dos Ojos Cenote. We felt very well taken care of and learned quite a bit from Manuel during our time with him. Would highly recommend!

    We had a fantastic time! Saw 3 turtles, a stingray, and many fish as we snorkeled and swam. Arturo was a great guide. Took us to a great senote where my kids jumped off a ledge dozens of times and we finished with an excellent lunch. Perfect day and very professional and fun tour!

    It was excellent. We had a blast. In fact, the cenote was a favorite by two of us and a close second with the others.

    The day we spent with this company exceeded all expectations despite our expectations been very high. From the moment we were greeted by artur to getting back to our hotel we were looked after with the highest level of professionalism. We can’t speak highly enough of either of the experiences we took part in (turtle tour and cenote swim) as they both blew our mind. The turtle swim was an incredible experience that is a memory that will stay with us for life and when it came to the cenote, the knowledge artur had of the cenotes was incredible and he really educated whilst leaving it to be private also. We then headed for a traditional Mexican meal which artur again advised us on the most local delicacies which we absolutely loved. From start to finish, fantastic trip. 5*
    Really great trip and thank you again

    AMAZING DAY…. having a private tour is worth every penny!
    Started early to beat the crowds (& heat) at ruins- learned a ton of history, then swam with sea turtles (huge ones + babies) in the ocean & even saw a Eagle ray; we then swam in a beautiful cenote- we chose the least crowded option & there was hardly anyone around, which was wonderful, & to finish the tour we had a delicious lunch in the jungle!
    I would absolutely choose this company again!

  66. Renee

    We had a wonderful experience snorkeling with turtles, swimming in a cenote plus a Mayan lunch in the jungle. Arturo and Claire are excellent hosts. Great idea to go as a private party. Snorkeling equipment and life jackets, new and sanitised. No rush, felt relaxed and safe the entire time even though you’re driving into the jungle in Mexico. A worthwhile experience.

  67. Lisa

    Absolutely perfect day!! First stop was Akumal for Turtle swim.. just beautiful. We were there early and beat the crowds! Next stop Dos Ojos cenote. This was such an amazing experience! Then an authentic Mexican lunch! Delicious. Arturo is the best guide, thank you for a great day.

    Juan “JJ” was an excellent tour guide. Informative, organized, and kind. We went to three places. The ruins, sea turtle excursion, and cenote swim. The cenote was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. After we went for a delicious lunch. This tour is a must do and with JJ! My friend and I had a wonderful time!

    My family and I had an amazing time on the swimming with turtles and cenote tour! Our guide Chris and our driver Juan Manuel were the best! They were both so nice and accommodating. Chris was very knowledgable and fun. My niece left her hat in the van and Juan Manual drove all the way back to our hotel to return it for us. They arranged for us to visit the cenote when it was less crowded, which was great. We visited Taak Bi Ha cenote and it was so stunning. We loved the fact that this was a private tour and we would totally recommend Absolute Adventure Mexico!

  70. Diane

    We loved the whole experience! Snorkeling with the sea turtles was awesome and definitely a highlight. The cenote was absolutely beautiful! I’m so glad we did the tour. Our tour guide Dulce and driver Pascual were very professional and accomodating. With so many tour companies to choose from, it was important for us to find the right one. We chose Absolute Adventure based on their positive reviews and were not disappointed. The experience was exactly what we hoped it would be and we felt safe and secure. We would definitely use them again!

  71. Ben

    Perfect organization, easy communication, competent and super pleasant driver and guide.

  72. Thomas

    We first started with swimming with the turtles which truly was a remarkable experience for my family. We came within 5 feet of this amazing creature and followed it as it rose its head out of the water for air and descended back to the sea grass. We were lucky enough as well to see some rays but to witness the giant sea turtles that close was a must do by anyone. We then grabbed our stuff and headed to a magnificent Cenote that will leave you speechless. Our guide Claire was an absolute book of knowledge and the best company and guide we could ask for on our day adventure. I would recommend this to one and all you will not be disappointed. Thank you Claire you truly were the best!! Hope to see you again.

  73. Brent

    Top notch service – the tour took us to Akumal to swim with Sea Turtles and our choice of cenotes for a swimming experience. Claire was a very a warm, friendly and informative guide and provided only quality gear and wetsuits. Highly recommend Absolute Adventure and the entire Tulum area.

  74. Tammy

    My family and I did the turtle and cenote snorkeling tour over the holidays and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Arturo was our guide and he was friendly, upbeat and knowledgeable. We would definitely take another tour with Absolute Adventure!

  75. Murphy

    Went swimming with the turtles at Akumal Beach followed by a swim in a Cenote. What a great day. Came within 5 feet of several turtles. Cenote and lunch was great also. I highly recommend Absolute Adventures.

  76. Dave

    My family and I did the turtle and cenote snorkeling tour over the holidays and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Arturo was our guide and he was friendly, upbeat and knowledgeable. Misael was our driver and we felt safe with him behind the wheel. We would definitely take another tour with Absolute Adventure!

  77. Susan

    We snorkled in a bay with green turtles and Chris was wonderful, patient with our group of all levels of experience. Then on to the cenotes, which was definitely a highlight!! Crystal clear water, formations overhead and bats hunkered down or ting around!! It was awesome!! So fun and Chris added his humor, knowledge and even with some more tentative in our group he made everyone feel comfortable and safe.

  78. Noah

    Well organized, safe, and fun! We did the snorkeling with sea turtles and a cenote adventure. I’d recommend this to anyone. This was the best day of our vacation.

  79. Lydia

    My brother and I had the most amazing time with Juan He was a perfect host that provided us with geological and historical facts. The cenote was beautiful and the lunch was absolutely delicious. Snorkeling with the turtles will forever be one of our favorite memories of our trip to Mexico. Thanks for the awesome experience!

  80. Linda

    Arturo made this day unforgettable. He was knowledgable and answereed each and every question of ours! I am very happy about this private tour experience, it’s a real plus.

  81. Jaqueline

    The tour was absolutely wonderful! We had such a great time. I really appreciated that they encouraged going earlier since we were staying in Tulum. It was like we had the ruins all to ourselves! The cenote was also a great experience and I felt safe to leave my stuff in the car during the swim. Arturo took great photos of us and the sites that were emailed to us within one day! I would highly recommend it to others!

  82. Steeve

    Excellent guide; good English and very friendly. It was nice to avoid the very large group excursions that are sold out of the resorts and get a personalized one of a kind Experience.

  83. Danny

    We went snorkeling in a cenote and then snorkeling in the ocean with turtles. It was a great combination and a very satisfying day. The whole time, Chris and Marianna were wonderful guides, explaining everything along the way and making sure all our needs were met. They were also great with the kids.

  84. Kristen

    Both Akumal and Nic Te Ha cenote are fabulous snorkeling places. They provided Everything was included from transportation to and from Cancun, private guide, snorkeling equipment, drinks and lunch. Was had a blast, it was a perfect day!

  85. Jackie

    We had a four person private tour and it was just what we were looking for. We went early in the morning to Akumal to snorkel with the sea turtles. Then we had an amazing time in a cenote snorkeling around. It was quiet and informative. Thank you very much for the wonderful time and I would definitely recommend this company!

  86. Paola

    My boyfriend and I did the turtle and cenote swim trip. The private tour was on point as went early morning so we could enjoy both locations for ourselves. It was very peaceful and private! Thanks AAM

  87. Amy

    My friend and I booked this tour on a girls weekend in Tulum and we had the best time! We were the only ones on the bus and Arturo spent so much time sharing the history of the area and answering all of our questions about Tulum and the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Absolute Adventure.

  88. Jeanna

    We used Absolute Adventure for a private snorkeling trip. Our family had never snorkeled, but Absolute Adventure took great care of us. The best part is that it was private. It was just us, not a big tourist group. We were picked up at our resort. Not only were they on time, but early. The turtles and fish were amazing. We highly recommend Absolute Adventure.
