The air conditioning in the transport was very cold. The rest was all very well, worried about the group, with food (snacks on the road) and more than enough and rich drinks. Tulum is beautiful, although we couldn't go to the beach because of the weather, the guide knows how to keep everyone attentive and entertaining. The cenote is also very nice, with enough lifeguards for everyone and very well maintained.

We had to wait 45 minutes at the cenote because we booked without and of course didn't have any swimwear with us.
