Marco and his other guide (I forget his name!) were great. We met them at Chichén Itzá instead of riding their bus, and they told us to meet them an hour and a half before they arrived. Other than that, it was a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgable, and we would have missed a lot of information without him. The cenote and lunch were nice, as well!

Hubo información que nos faltó previa al paseo:como que podíamos tener la opción de almuerzo con bebidas incluidas, que en el cenote al que fuimos hay vestuarios con duchas a disposición de todos y también hay casilleros y salvavidas (con costo a parte, siendo este último obligatorio). Además la aplicación y la agencia local nos mandó email simultáneos con puntos de encuentro diferentes. En ese email , la agencia local, sólo nos proporcionó el nombre del hotel q nos recogería, sin dirección. Creo que es importante ser bien claros con la información, los lugares están espectaculares y el personal tuvo muy buena actitud, amabilidad y empatía. El guía Tony, es un libro abierto, sabe un montón.

Marcos is an excellent guide. Oscar and Victor were our drivers, and both are very professional. We were very fortunate to go on a cloudy day in December. It was a comfortable 29 degrees Celsius. The site was not too crowded, probably thanks to COVID. We learned a lot from Marcos about Mayan culture, and enjoyed a wonderful lunch prepared by local Myans. Selva Maya cenote was so cool! The water was refreshing after a warm day at Chichen Itza. excellent all around. It would be nice if the drive could have gone from Playa Del Carmen since that was where we were staying. We met our driver at 6:00 am so he could pick up 2 more couples then get us to another bus near Cancun, only to head south again to our destination. A lot of driving out of the way for us, but this was the only drawback.
