Cenote sink whole

Adventure Tours Riviera Maya

Cenote [ suh-no-tay ] 

noun

Cenotes are like the emeralds of Tulum. Soothing shades of green, clear, mineral rich water surrounded by rock formations, these natural pools give off amazing energy, and jungle vibes. This makes for one of the most unique, special tours you’ll ever experience! 

All tours include masks, as the cenotes are just as beautiful and unique below the water. It’s as if you’re in another world! Explore Tulum’s cenotes and allow The Beach Planner to elevate your time while getting lost in the natural beauty of this area!

  • Private tour guide who is licensed and very knowledgeable of the area

  • Snorkel gear, wetsuits, and flashlights

  • Entry fees

  • Transportation with AC and music

  • Snacks, beer and water throughout the day

This is the most unique tour The Beach Planner offers. Take a tour to multiple cenotes and swim through caves and open lagoons, and explore the gems of Mexico. Witness the mesmerizing, beautiful, and natural creations that have formed over thousands of years on this fun and adventurous tour.

Cenotes are natural pits or sinkholes filled with mineral-rich freshwater. All Tulum & Playa del Carmen cenote tours are unique, enchanting, and private. A must-see during your escapade through Mexico.

Underneath the Riviera Maya, there are huge caves and tunnels which form an underground water system. Formed thousands of years ago this underground playground is where you’ll discover hundreds of cenotes.
