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 by the stingrays!

We arrived early, avoiding the larger crowds arriving in buses to this popular tourist destination. A great way to start the day, making our way back to the van proceeding to our second stop at the eco reserve of Tankah.

Tankah is an ecological reserve situated inland approximately half an hour driving time from Tulum and was once a part of an ancient Mayan city many years ago. A beautiful reserve with a few villagers 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!

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.

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 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 tour and the quality of tour is far superior!

Final Thoughts Banner

Below, I have listed the company’s official Facebook page for your convenience for more detailed information on tours offered and current prices.

It appears as of August 2021, their website is down at this time. It is most likely due to the most unfortunate Covid-19 pandemic crisis that is affecting so many tourism businesses around the globe. I do hope they will resume operations in the very near future!
