Monday to Friday
After morning hotel pickup from Cancun by minivan, your guide whisks you to a local Maya community called Rancho San Felipe. Meet the residents of this small village, including a shaman who takes you through a traditional purification ceremony.
Next, head into the nearby jungle to reach the Sac Actun cenote system, the world’s longest underground river system, recommended by National Geographic for top-notch snorkeling and cave diving. With the help of your guide, make your way through the caves and arrive at the cavern of Nohoch Nah Chich, studded with stalactites and stalagmites. Slip on provided snorkeling gear and enjoy a cool break from the heat with a swim in the cenote.
Then, hop aboard a Mercedes-Benz Unimog, your 4x4 transport, and drive deep into the rainforest for a 40-foot (12-meter) rappel down to Yaxmuul, another natural underground pool. Sail through the treetop canopy on three ziplines; the last one gives you a splash ending into the water. After your jungle adventure, settle in for a buffet lunch of homemade classic Maya fare. When your hunger pangs are satisfied, board your air-conditioned minivan for the drive back to Cancun. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in the afternoon.

Absolutely loved this excursion! The tour van that we were picked up in was clean, comfortable and had excellent air conditioning. Our tour guide Christian was great, fluent in English and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the tour. We were picked up on time from our hotel at 7:40am and dropped off at around 3:30pm with travel times of around 1H30M from the hotel zone in Cancun to Sac Actun. Something to note is that there are actually five different ziplines that we got to go on which was a nice bonus we thought there was only three originally. A hint for those who are thinking of recording their experience with an action camera, remember to bring a chest mount for your device as selfie sticks are not permitted both hands need to be free for ziplining and rappelling and head mounts arent feasible with a helmet on for ziplining. Overall, we really enjoyed the tour with our favorite parts being the ziplining and cave pool snorkeling.
We had such a great time with All Native Tours through Viator. Our guide for the day, Anastaciya, was so wonderful and was able to communicate with us in English as well as Spanish for the other couple who was with us. The experience in the jungle was fascinating and beautiful, highly worth visiting. The Mayan lunch afterward was amazing too. The food was so delicious.
Be prepared though if you go during rainy season the mosquitos are going to get you and you're not allowed to wear bug spray because of the cenotes. They don't want sun tan lotion or bug spray polluting the crystal clear waters. Also, if you don't like bats be wary because they live in the cenotes and have no fear of flying right over you while you're snorkeling.
Depending on where you are located on the island you'll be picked up as early as 6:20 so don't make it a late night although you'll have about 2 hours to drive to the destination so you could take a nap on the nicely air conditioned bus.
Our tour guide Edward was amazing, I was afraid of heights, and he made the grappling and zip line experience very comfortable! The 4x4 ride was also super fun! The snorkeling in the cenotes was beautiful, and lunch was delicious! Pickup and drop off right from hotel, highly recommended!
Great excursion! Best part was snorkeling and rappelling into the Cenotes. Pick up van was new, clean and air conditioned. The driver is your tour guide and stays with you the whole time including the ride back to your hotel. The only complaints I have are the prices of the photos: 30 USD for a single photo---60 USD for a CD with photos only---90 if there are 3 or more people in your group, and 100 for a USB drive of photos and video taken. 2nd complaint: There isn't enough rappelling equipment to go around. We had to wait about 30 minutes until other tour groups came off the zip lines/rappelling so we could get the harnesses. They need to buy more rappelling harnesses.
I had such a great time! The ziplines were a lot of fun and up above the trees. The cenotes were so clear you could see everything. Our tour guide Pepe was great. The only downfall was how much the pictures cost. I paid $30 USD for one picture.
Really fun day with plenty of variety. Guides were super friendly and took extra care of my friend, who is afraid of heights!
This was the perfect excursion!! From the zipling to the snorkeling the whole day was filled with activities, and I was very impressed with the professionalism and organization of the whole day. Our tour guide Pedro was a blast! He informed us of everything as we went while also being extremely personable and fun. This tour included FIVE ziplines which was more than I ever expected. The snorkeling was by far the coolest part the caves were fascinating. I will say I wish that I wish that part was a bit longer but there was so much to do I completely understand why. I would say if you are on the fence about ziplining go for a snorkeling excursion, you wont regret it! Also, the lunch they provide at the end was probably the best meal I had my whole time in Mexico.
One thing I would say as just a heads up is that if you are staying in Cancun it is a 2 hour drive to get there 4 hours total, but I know for my group it was worth it! Cant wait to go back!
My sister and I really wanted to go Ziplining as we had never tried it. Sarah our tour guide was there to help us with our fears. We really enjoyed the blessing and the buffet that they had. The thing that scared me the most was the way we had to go to get to the platform before going down the zipline. Beautiful countryside.
This activity was absolutely awesome! The guides were wonderful and a lot of fun.
We had a blast! Did so many things that were far outside my comfort zone. Eric was our guide and was encouraging, helpful and all around great! Will recommend this to anyone.
While this probably gets very crowded in the summer and spring break months, it was great for me in April. The entire experience, from the Shaman to the zip lines to the food was excellent. Our tour guide, Diego, was smart and knowledgable also.
Although the actual cenotes were amazing, I wasn't allowed to take my waterproof camera along with me to take my own photos so had to rely on the camera shots from the professional photographers there, which weren't much cop. We also found a spider and i asked for the cameraman to take a shot of me next to it for my usb stick which i bought with all the photos on it. The photo was not allowed to be on the stick as it was a dangerous spider. This totally put me off the park and the attitudes when i asked can i pay for it were shocking. The snorkelling in the cenotes was amazing though just an unpleasant experience regarding my own photos.
Well organized tour, good amenities and excellent tour guide we got Fabian with us. Food was also great and the opportunity to be in the middle of the jungle in a cenote was outstanding.
The highlight was scuba diving in the cenote. That was an incredible experience.
The snorkeling was okay. I wish we could have swam in the cenote a bit longer. It was my first time snorkeling, and I didn't quite have the hang of it so I didn't enjoy it much. It was still very educational learning about the cenotes and swimming to the bat cave. I think its work a visit if someone wants to learn about the cenotes.
This tour was amazing. Our guide Frederico was very informative and fun The food was awesome and well seasoned. I'd recommend this excursion as well as go on it again. It was well worth it.
