What to Expect
Cenotes are great, but they're even better when nobody is there and you can enjoy it 100% by yourself!

Pick up time is between 8 and 8 15 am at your hotel or rendezvous spot.

Approximate arrival time to first cenote: 8 45

Once we put on the wetsuits and take the lights and lifejackets, it is time to explore! The first 30% of the cave is to build confidence, walking and enjoy the great view. Afterwards, your guide will take you through the remaining 70% of the cave, getting up a notch the adrenaline rush by going through partially flooded tunnels leading to hidden chambers and glorious stalagtite formations only a few have the courage to visit, making a total swim time of 1 hour and 20 min. Approximate exit time: 10:30 am

After the first cenote experience you can have a fruit and / or cookies to recover some energy and go to the next one, which is totally different: open, colorful and full of life. After 20 minutes of swimming, your guide will take you by car to yet another cenote; a magical mangle with underwater clouds and utter silence! Approximate finish time: 12:30 pm

Finally, we will enjoy a completely traditional mexican meal. Approximate finish time: 2:00 pm

I would definitely recommend Smiling Tulum. I learned and enjoy 100% each cenote we visit. Charly's experience and knowledge about every cenote and mayan history was simple delightful. Highly recommended!!

We can't recommend Jorge highly enough! We learned so much about Mayan history and culture, all about the cenotes of the area, Tulum in general, and the flora and fauna as we happened upon it. We booked Smiling Tulum off a review we read and are so happy we did - the half day we

We found Carlos through the recommendation of a friend who did a tour with him a few months ago and raved about him. I’m so glad we booked with him too— it was the highlight of our 10 day trip to Playa. Carlos is not only a super friendly and knowledgeable guide, he has thought
