What people are saying about Riviera Maya

The tour was great! The manageable group size (there were seven of us) was perfect, you get the feeling of being able to escape from mass tourism. First we went to the ruins of Muyil. Already on the way there we were able to learn a lot about the flora and fauna of Yucatán from our guide Luigi. Arrived on site we learned exciting things about the culture of the Maya. The highlight was the subsequent visit to Sian Ka'an and floating between the mangroves. If you are in Tulum, you simply have to experience it. In between we were provided with delicious biscuits and a fantastic lunch.

The tour was just great! The guide Ursula did a great job and it was very interesting and a lot of fun! Swimming in the mangroves was really unique! The tour is highly recommended :)

Palmarès is an excellent guide. I really appreciated his information on the site. Thanks for this trick.

Fantastic tour in the middle of nature, swimming in the lagoon was a great experience.

Best adrenaline park ever, the ziplines are cool and swimming in the cave was amazing.
