Johnny was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable and fun. I was so scared to do the repelling, but everyone was so encouraging. I definitely would love to go again. The only thing I would advice to bring a lite snack for breakfast and don't forget a towel. The email sent from Cancun tours was a little misleading about what was offered. You do get a locker at the cenote to store belongings which was really nice and the lunch at the cenote was incredible. The excursion was one of my favorite memories from my trip.

The whole day was amazing and our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Being a small group also meant that we were able to customise what we wanted to see etc. The lunch was lovely and much needed after a long day.
