Tulum ruins, Kaan Luum Lagoon & Cenote

If you’re visiting Riviera Maya, one of the most amazing and memorable tours combines the Mayan ruins at Tulum with a visit to Kaan Luum Lagoon and the chance to snorkel in a clear cenote. It’s three amazing experiences packed into in one private tour!

This private Kaan Luum Tour means you will be picked up and dropped off at your hotel and will have the attentive services of your own private guide throughout the whole tour experience. Did we mention it also includes a delicious lunch in the jungle? So here’s what to expect!

See Tulum ruins without the crowds

Your private transport will pick you up early to beat the crowds and heat at Tulum Ruins. It’s one of the most famous Mayan sites with incredible views overlooking the blue Caribbean Sea. You’ll visit all the top structures and temples with your own English-speaking archaeological guide. Look forward to taking photos and enjoying the experience ahead of the daily crowds.

Kaan Luum Lagoon

Just 10 miles inland from Tulum is the serene Kaan Luum Lagoon. Surrounded by lush rainforest vegetation the aquamarine waters are truly breathtaking.

The picturesque Laguna Kaan Luum is actually a shallow lagoon with gorgeous turquoise waters. There is a deep cenote in the middle (the source of the fresh water) marked by an area of darker water. The shoreline has a sandy bottom and the fresh water is mostly knee to shoulder depth, although the deep center of the cenote is off-limits for swimming.

Relax beneath the shady palapa or walk along the pier and jump into the lagoon for a swim. We’ll provide floating airbeds so you can just chill out and enjoy the calm waters. It’s beautiful!

Cenote experience and Lunch in Tulum!

The final part of this amazing Kaan Luum Tour is a stop at Cenote Corazon. Look down into the crystal clear waters to see amazing rock formations as you snorkel and swim.

Once your refreshing cenote swim is over, you’ll be ready for lunch and drinks at a typical Mexican restaurant in Tulum center.

Enjoy the scenic drive back to your hotel. Sit back quietly and reminisce over a day filled with breathtaking natural and manmade sights on this unforgettable private tour.

    Awesome Tulum, lagoon and cenote tour
    Our family had an amazing time with this private tour. Joshua was really awesome and took so many pictures for us and he knew which spot to take pics! The tour started early and it was SO worth it. We beat all the crowds and we enjoyed each sites fully!! Joshua was very knowledgeable about Mayan ruins and history and gave us enough time to spend at each site. We enjoyed relaxing at Laguna Kaan luum and the highlight was snorkeling at Cenote Taak Bi Ha. It was so incredible!! Lunch at Juanita was very yummy too! Joshua was so friendly and was a great tour guide and Enrique was an excellent driver! We had a fantastic time!! Thank you!

    Private tour 10/10
    We did a private tour to the Tulum Ruins, Kaan Luum lagoon, & Cenote Corazón. It was a nice mix of some beautiful sites, & a perfect amount of time. Our guide Juan was awesome, we loved chatting with him & it was as if we knew each other. We shared a lot of laughs. Our driver was great as well & very safe. The sites were incredible & Juan was very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend!

  3. Mag

    Tulum Ruins , lagoon and cenote was amazing!
    This trip was amazing with one of the best tour guides in the business “JJ” and his driver “Omar”! He got us to the Mayan Ruins before all the crowds and gave us the most in depth tour with a vast knowledge of the Mayan culture and history! We then went for a swim in a Lagoon and a cenote where he was there with us the whole step of the way! We then had a wonderful lunch in Akumal! What an excursion it was!

  4. Mike

    Awesome experience!

  6. Hillary

    We took two tours with Absolute Adventures in 2022 and came back for two more in 2023. We love the format of the tours, the tour guides, and that we can take a tour with just our group. Arturo was kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He was a delight on both of our tours and I hope we can tour with him again in the future.

  7. Tamira

    Absolutely amazing! Arturo was extremely nice super professional felt very safe and he allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted to! It was perfect!

  8. Katie

    Visited tulum ruins, laguna kaan, and cenote corazon with Arturo. Wonderful experience, great guide, delicious lunch.

  9. Kelly

    Absolute Adventure is the only way I would tour this part of Tulum and the surrounding area.
    A private tour is something we’ve never done, but being that this trip was me & my daughter only, it was a great choice for us to do for the day.
    Arturo & Carlos were like “family” we knew here who spent this gorgeous day with us.
    Unforgettable! And we appreciate their kindness & expertise.

  10. Matthew

    The day spent with Arturo was the highlight of our holiday. He was fun, informative and seemed to take pleasure in our enjoyment. The Kaan Luum lagoon and the Cenote were both very special. My wife snorkelled for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it in a calm and safe environment.
    I would highly recommend Absolute Adventure who offered prompt responses and a first class service. Don’t bother looking elsewhere just book with this company if you prefer a quality private tour!

  11. Emily

    Awesome experience. Arturo and the rest of the team created a great experience for our large group. Super accommodating and they truly wanted us to have the best time!

  12. Branden

    We had a wonderful time w/ Claire and her team today. The reviews speak for themselves. If you value your time and don’t mind getting up a little earlier than normal on vacation these are your guides. I’m looking forward to booking with them again in the future.
