This tour was absolutely amazing and worth every penny. We were just three couples and Nick (the guide), who picked us up in our hotel. First we went snorkeling to Akumal. On the way there Nick told us all the interesting and important stuff there's to know about turtles and generally the Akumal and Cenotes. When we got to Akumal,... More

Our hotel recommended Nick to us, saying that it is like going on a tour with your best friend, and indeed it was! A very knowledgeable one at that! Nick greeted us with a warm smile at our hotel, and we all hopped into a taxi to Akumal. Nick's friendly personality coupled with his knowledge and clear snorkeling instructions made... More

Nick's tour is fabulous. He brings you to snorkel in two locations: the ocean to see sea turtles and coral and then to the cenote. He utilizes the time in the car to give you an overview of Tulum and the things you are going to see. In between our snorkeling trips, he took us to a fabulous popsicle place...hugely... More

Nick was fabulous. We could not have asked for a better guide who brought us to places that we would not otherwise have found. Snorkeling in Akumal Bay was very fun and the Cenote was 3 miles into the jungle and an amazing experience. I would recommend anyone to see these two sites with Nick. He is very knowledgeable and...

There's not much more I can add beyond what the other reviews have written, so I'll just say I agree! Nick is a knowledgeable, professional, warm guy and a great guide. I will definitely call him when I go back to Tulum.

You cant get a better guide than Nick. He picked us up at the hotel right on time. Took myself, my Husband , my 15 yr. old son and London honeymooners on a awesome adventure. I'm not going to spoil it for you. Just go. He took us all to a real taco place for lunch. Great food. Great guide.... More

We were lucky to get to one of Nick's snorkeling tours in a short notice through our hotel in Tulum. And what a great day we had! We had plans to go to Akumal to snorkle with turtles which I had really been looking forward to but unfortunately the tides we're too high so it wasn't safe to snorkle there.... More

We had a fabulous trip with Nick snorkeling at Xcacel (not well known compared to Akumal- a good thing!), and visiting the stunning cenote Santa Cruz. Xcacel is a quiet, remote beach with no services, part of a sanctuary. Snorkeling was fun. Also visited a small mangrove cenote 5 minutes from the beach with cool little fish that nibble on... More

We did the cenote tour and had a brilliant time! From the beginning Nick kept in touch with exactly what time he what time there. We were shown the best of the cenotes and Nick's knowledge of the local area was amazing from the secret tunnels in the cenotes and exactly where to look and what we were looking at!... More

We originally booked a tour for snorkeling at Akumal with a trip to Casa Cenote. Nick came highly recommended to us through the manager at the place we stayed in Tulum. On the day of our tour Akumal was closed as the seas were too rough. Nick still showed up at 8am & already had alternate plans. While we were... More
