We had a great time on the Jungle Buggy and Cenote Swim with Alexia and Fernando! Although the jungle buggy driving was not exactly what we thought it would be. We thought we'd be driving more through the actual jungle and not so much on a path...But, drive on a path we did and it was muddy fun! The visit to the cenote was definitely the highlight of our time, and we swam, and dove and faced our fears climbing the wall of the cenote and diving into the beautiful, clear water below. Alexia and Fernando were a goddess and god of jungle buggy-ing and cenote swimming. They were fun, interesting and caring leaders for us and we felt safe, seen and heard. Alexia was able to tell us some historical and topographical back story on the cenotes and Fernando added his own "special sauce" of humor and charisma. Perhaps the most adorable member of the team was the little blond dog who stole our hearts when we returned to base camp. But, we LOVE dogs!!!

This trip was so much fun! My wife and myself figured we would try something a little different than the normal tourist trap destinations. We are both so glad we did.
It starts by the company picking you up from your hotel (awesome service) and driving you about 20-25min out of the central part of the city. Once you arrive at a gated entrance you switch vans for the last part of the transportation section of this trip.
This is where the fun begins. While waiting the van driver and the gate keeper felled a few coconuts off of a tree and used a machete to hack them open so that we could have fresh coconut water.
Then we all pile into a beat up old white van to drive down a dirt road carved out of the jungle. Now this van has absolutely no suspension left and no operational shocks whatsoever. This has everyone within the van hopping and jumping around like popcorn kernels within this van. It is a prelude to the awesome bumps and hills you are about to navigate.
After you arrive to the starting point Alexia and Fernando (who are amazingly friendly) give you a safety briefing and then you are on your way.
It was so much fun whipping through the jungle and just getting to experience a different side of Playa del Carmen.
The Cenote where you get to swim at is just beautiful. It is so secluded within the jungle that it feels otherworldly. I can’t fully describe how amazing it was.

I think that this trip is so worth the time and $. Is is something that you will never forget.

Thanks so much Alexia and Fernando!

This was an absolutely fantastic tour! It is not an ATV tour! Let me say that again, it is not an ATV tour! However, with that said, it is 1000 times better than an ATV Tour! Chris and Rocio were superb tour guides! They were extremely personable and gave us insight into the local flora and fauna and history of the region!

What made this tour absolutely perfect was their ability to make our special needs son feel included in the tour. Our son had never participated in an excursion but Chris and Rocio made him feel welcome! It was also great for me, an individual who has had extensive neck surgery…not extremely rough!

We were picked up at our hotel lobby in a small bus and transported to another hotel to pick up additional tour participants. The total in the tour was only 9 which was a perfect size. We then took a short ride to the ranch where we met Chris and Rocio. The buggies were new and clean! We were given a brief introduction to the operation of the buggies. We drove about 30 minutes on varying roads from dirt roads to rough jungle roads with many rough spots and puddles. We drove at about 25 miles per hour….not a crazy speed…an enjoyable speed which let you see and enjoy the jungle. We then arrived at the beautiful cenote which was cool and crisp. You could wade in, jump from a dock, or climb and jump from 7 or 14 feet ledges. We swam for about 35-40 minutes and then drove back. At the end of the tour we had a small snack and some water.

There were open air showers and private, very clean bathrooms available.

Very highly recommended!

Best day started off with the pick up at our hotel wherein the driver clearly and loudly called for my name. Don't know how many times a driver sneaks in & you almost miss your pickup. I was originally concerned that the UTV driving would be a bit boring just on a plain roads but it turned out 1000x better then I expected. Going over 50km/hr. This experience was so much fun and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The vehicles were completely safe and easy to drive. You don't necessarily need a license but you need to know how to drive. They had clean bathrooms with room/time to change before and/or after the tour. Souvenirs were available to buy using a credit card.
Apparently there is only one other tour company with access to the cenote so you could be lucky and be the only ones there. The walk from the UTV to the cenote was only 3 mins over some uneven path but even someone with a hard time walking could do it.
Never felt rushed 40 mins to cenote, 35-40 mins there, 40 mins back - face masks for the water was provided.
Chris was an amazing tour guide! And that always makes experiences that much better! Would even go again if we came back on vacay.

Alexia and Jorge were wonderful guides! very nice, informative, and attentive. We really enjoyed the trip with our 3 younger children. Have been on multiple tours at other locations. The location was amazing, cenote was the swim of a lifetime. We were able to have fun with the 6 year old and even the adults. Jorge took us to the cave where we were able to climb and dive into 45 foot deep water. alexia was more than happy to photograph and offer snorkeling gear and advice for the entire family, also very good at navigating the trail and keeping us safe. The buggies were in great condition and well maintained. We were taught the history, Mayan culture, and respect for the area! We would love to enjoy this trip again ! Thanks guys!

This. Was. Awesome. We wanted to experience something like this but didn’t want to commit to an entire 7-8 hour day plus traveling plus being in a bus with tons of people. This was just the right amount of time!

Our guides Cris and Rocia were phenomenal, attentive, spoke perfect English (in case you don’t speak Spanish), we’re knowledgeable, friendly, funny and kept us informed and safe.

The buggy drive was fun as hell, wish it was raining though! That would have made it even better haha! We got filthy and then they lead us in to the jungle for a short (literal 3 minute) walk to the cenote. It was magical. Never have my eyes seen something of such natural occurring splendor before. The water was blue and clear and the deepest part was so so so deep and the feeling of the water after being dirty as hell and sweaty was beyond refreshing. I was afraid to jump in because water freaks me out a bit sometimes but Cris saw that I was nervous and grabbed my hand and said “Ok ready? On 3…….3!” and it gave me the courage to just jump in! My boyfriend jumped off the huge jump and did it 5 times hahaha.

Tips:

1. Prepare to get dirty. Don’t wear white or else you’re an idiot. I wore white sneakers - they will not be returning to the states with me hahahaha.

2. Water shoes are a good idea because the limestone is sharp as hell on your feet and if you plan to jump, the climb up on bare feet feels like razors. Go in to town if you hadn’t packed any, buy some water shoes.

3. Wear your suit there, it’s easier for everyone if they’re not waiting for you to change. You can change your clothes in to dry clothes once returned to the ranch.

4. They have chips and water for the return back.

5. Bring a bottle of water and bug spray for sure!

We had such an incredible time! It will never ever be forgotten.

We loved this excursion so much. Fernando and Alexia were perfect guides— they clearly love what they do and enjoy interacting with guests from all over the world. There hadn't been much rain in the days prior to our excursion, so the ride was dusty. We had brought bandanas to cover our nose & mouth— trust me, you need to do this. Our hair was uncovered, and by the time we got to the cenote, we were covered in so much dust that we looked 20 years older with solid gray hair. They do provide you with goggles to protect your eyes on the drive. The cenote is truly stunning, with icy cold, clear blue water and a few fish. Fernando and Alexia showed everyone where to climb on the rocks to jump or dive into the water, and took all the photos and videos we wanted. After the swim, you drive back to the ranch for chips and drinks. I have seen several people complain that "it's just chips," but y'all. Some of those chips are Mexican Fritos, which are FAR superior to American Fritos. Embrace the chips!! ***The one caveat I will point out to those with a need for speed is that this is NOT a super fast paced 4 wheeler tour. You're driving Can Am "buggies," which are essentially golf carts but for a ranch. The highest speed we hit was roughly 30-35mph on a fast stretch, but you're mostly down around 20-25mph. It's still a fun, bumpy ride, but manage your expectations for the speed.***

The cenote was absolutely phenomenal. Our guides were fantastic. Fernando was hilarious and so much fun. My three teenage girls had a blast with him. Alexia was very knowledgeable about the history of the cenote‘s as well as conservation of the amazing wildlife in the Yucatán. One of my daughters was a bit apprehensive about entering the cenote until Alexia held her hand and said let’s run and jump off the dock. She did this with glee. Fernando encouraged my other two fearless daughters to climb the sides of the cave to a safe spot to jump into the crystal clear waters of the beautiful cenote. The trip to the cenote and the ATVs was a lot of fun. The actual time at the cenote was unforgettable.

This was such an awesome experience. It was raining sporadically but there were large puddles while driving the buggy…by far the best part of the buggy ride! Our Tour guides - Fernando and Alexia were awesome and made sure we all had a great and safe time. Tour started with the buggy drive into the jungle roads, Unpaved but with the AWD buggy’s, it was not a problem. Once we got into the “flooded” parts of the road, that’s where the fun truly began. So much fun getting splashed! Once we made it to the cenote and the bat cave. Small little hike down to the cenote, it was a such a refreshing dive into the waters. Water was not too cold and it started to rain in the jungle, such a beautiful and memorable view. Completely recommend this tour!

Definitely recommend the jungle buggy tour! Private cenote means no crowds, just the people you were on the tour with! The rain made for some big mud puddles to splash through. Chris and Rocio were rockstar guides—so kind and informative. Also an extra big shoutout because after jumping off the cliff into the cenote my Apple Watch flew off and Chris swam down 35+ feet to retrieve it for me! He didn’t HAVE to, but he did it anyways. Definitely recommend this tour and the staff!
