Drive into the heart of the jungle at the wheel of one of the amazing 4WD vehicles. Feel the breeze on your face as you zip along 18 miles (29 kilometers) of pristine jungle trails in the rugged terrain of the beautiful Riviera Maya. Take a moment to admire the stunning surroundings with a stop at a traditional ranch. Then, cool down with a refreshing swim at one of the sacred sinkholes of the Maya people.

An awesome activity! The whole process was very smooth - the drivers and transportation were on time, and the guides were clearly trained and knowledgable, the whole experience felt very safe. The tour on the buggys was so fun - it had rained that morning, so the drive was extra muddy and added to the experience. It was really cool to drive through the jungle - and end up at one of the cenotes. Would recommend!

AMAZING!! You’re basically splashing and riding fast through a jungle surrounded by swarms of butterflies. It was so beautiful and surreal. I would recommend any person I know traveling to Cancun or playa del Carmen to experience this. I would also recommend to really wear water shoes even when driving because I though they were only for the cenote swimming but my sneakers got soaked from all of the awesome puddles that we drove through. I would also recommend snagging the first buggy in the line because you will be able to go the fastest and enjoy the best views. It even started pouring for two minutes during our ride and that added to the fun! Our guide cris was amazing and took a 5+ minute of us riding from in front of us which was really nice. Overall great experience! (And they provide snacks and water)

Most amazing tour. If you have one choice for a tour choose this one!! Cris was a great guide and made sure to take plenty of photos and videos so we could document and relive the whole thing. The buggy ride was so much fun and then ending up at the cenote was one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen. It was just us and another couple from our tour so we had the entire cenote to ourselves. I’ve done a couple cenote tours before and this was so much better. No touristy over crowded place just a quick walk through the jungle and you’re completely secluded in the cenote. It was better than I could have even imagined. Buggy’s were easy and safe to drive and we got to switch driving after the cenote swim so we both got a chance to try driving them.
