Ernesto was our guide for Tulum and did a wonderful job, he was very informative, lots of personality and we will always remember the iguana falling out of the tree! I highly recommend this trip, after walking around Tulum for 2 hours, the Xel-Ha park was very refreshing. For next time, I would bring a water camera or water proof phone case. Wasn't sure I would be able to snorkel, but I got the hang of it! So much fun, and food was included! I would definitely do this trip again.

lots of fun, loved the all inclusive, the problem is always that the day moves so quickly so 2 hours in tulum turned out to be a shame. The ruins were small enough to explore with time to spare, but we didn't get to explore the town. You also wouldn't want to miss out on any time at Xel-Hal, since there is an amazing variety of fun things to do while there.

Mayan Ruins: The tour was nice but there were so many other tours going on at the same time it was hard to keep track of my group, I caught myself listening to the information provided by the other tour guides in regards to the Mayan ruins history. I wish that there was more time to shop at Tulum by the bus stop because I didn't see any other shops like that during the tours. Xel-Ha All inclusive: The food and drinks were great, as well as all of the other activities Xel Ha had to offer. However during snorkeling there was a lot of algae which made the water look dirty, and the goggles kept on fogging which made it worse. The coral reefs were damaged because people were resting on it, it would be beneficial to tell people not to touch it.

Thoroughly recommend this tour it was a long day but totally worth it. Initially it was a little confusing trying to find the correct bus etc. as we were picked up then taken to another station which wasn't clear however it improved from then. Tulum is breathtaking and Xel-Ha was more than I could have imagined. If you're wanting to explore the Mayan Ruins and then have a bit of water fun after this is the tour for you. Not to mention the all inclusive drinks and food!

The Tulum and Xel-ha tour were a great investment! The ride down there from Cancun was very relaxing on the air conditioned bus. We had two hours at Tulum which gave us a ton of time to explor and go down to the beach. It's hot there so going to axel-ha right after and getting into the cool water was perfect! All you can eat and drink is provided at Xel-ha and the food was excellent! We inner tubed and snorkeled down the river which started in mangroves. It was so beautiful and seeing all of the tropical fish was really cool! There were so so many things to do at Xel-ha so it offers a great variety of activities for the family. We have now convinced our whole family to go on vacation next year and we will definitely be taking them to Xel-Ha!

We had our 2 year old and 6 year old. We took a stroller, so it was hard for us to keep up with the tour guide. We didn't get to hear much of the information about the ruins in Tulum. We enjoyed Xel Ha. I think if we would do it again, we should have only done Xel Ha alone all day. Tulum is too hot and not quite interesting for the very young kids.

The tour is a nice introduction to one of the ruins in the area. The time in Tullum was quite condensed and it would have been nice to have had another half hour or so. Xel-Ha immerses you in the incredible vegetation found throughout this part of the world. The snorkeling was alright. If you've snorkeled other places you may be a bit disappointed by the visibility and limited variety of fish fish. It is however a great place to introduce younger children to the sport. Definitely take the time to walk the surrounding paths thru the area. Fantastic scenery and little hidden gems throughout the park. A lot to fit in a day but a wonderful time.

For the most part, we had a wonderful time. However, I do have a couple of suggestions. The bus ride from Cancun to Tulum took two hours. The tour guide/facilitator spoke, without a break, for the entire two hours. He was amplified by a microphone. I had a headache by the time we reached Tulum. We don't need to know about Halloween or a $25 plug for a personalized Mayan calendar. He talked too much. Please shorten this to maybe an hour at the most. I know it is difficult because he had to say the same thing in both English and Spanish. Still, shorten the talking. The other thing involves Tulum. It smelled like a sewer at the base of the wooden steps leading to the beach. Not sure if this was due to the ocean, or if people have no other place to relieve themselves, do it at the base of the steps when nobody is looking. I think the only bathrooms are at the entrance which is a mile or two away. This is probably out of your control but perhaps this could be forwarded on to the Mexican government agency in charge of Tulum.

The drive and wait at times is long due to the amount of people in the tour but I was expecting it from other reviews. Other then that it was a great combo tour and Xelha was unforgettable and with so many activities for the whole family. The restaurants there especially the Mexican one was so delish and highly recommended! As for Tulum it was an interesting historical filled tour of which my husband and I enjoyed but our younger daughters not so much. It was very hot there and the tour guide explains the ruins and the history behind this location. All tour staff was always friendly and helpful, we are happy we chose this combo.

We weren't sure what to expect, but we're surprised at the organization; from pick up from the hotel lobby through the day and back to the lobby. Tulum was a very large sacred city (which we were told is what they are supposed to be called rather than ruins). Alfredo, the tour guide, was amusing and very knowledgeable. Impressively he spoke 7 languages. Xel Ha was full of activities to fill the rest of the day without spending another dime. The food was excellent and multiple bars throughout the park keep your thirst quenched. If you care to spend a bit more, there are activities such as swimming with dolphins and zipbiking. The entire day is a great memory for us. Highly recommended!
