This is an incredible 8-hour tour that will let you unveil the mysteries of the Mayan underwater world. You’ll be able to swim both in the fresh and pleasantly chilly waters of sacred cenotes, and in the salty ocean of the Great Mayan Reef.
If you have never before been to a cenote, it’s difficult to imagine its glorious beauty. Cenotes are natural pits, or sinkholes, that are typical to the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico. They used to apply fresh water to ancient Mayan communities and were considered sacred.
Swimming in cenotes offers encounters with a very specific flora and fauna. You can spot small eels, guppies, catfish, and other little fish. If you stay motionless you’ll get for free the spa fish pedicure.
AFter the cenote, there will be time to relax and munch on some snacks. Later, we’ll head to Puerto Morelos, a charming fishing village with wide, beautiful, white-sand beaches. Puerto Morelos happens to be located in front of the second largest reef in the world, the Great Mayan Reef, also known as the Mesoarmerican Barrier Reef. The reef extends for more than 700 miles along the coasts of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras.
You’ll be able to learn about the reef and its importance, and see its wonders. We will snorkel in warm ocean waters to admire marine unique flora and fauna and colorful corals. Truly unforgettable experience. If you have a camera for underwater photos, this is the best moment to use it!
After the snorkelling time, we will relax on the beach and get you back to your hotel around lunch time.
