About
Discover the natural beauty of a cenote from above and below the surface on a tour that combines standup paddleboarding and snorkeling. The calm, freshwater is the ideal place for beginners or kids to try standup paddleboarding and snorkeling without the added challenge of the choppy, salty seawater. Additionally, paddleboarding provides a great vantage point for observing the depths of the crystal-clear pools while enjoying the surrounding jungle.

We booked 2 of us to go for the 8am paddle boarding with Mauricio. It was just the two of us in the group which was great as we got a lot of personal attention. We were both first time paddle boarders but Mauricio got us up to speed and comfortable really quickly - progressing from kneeling to standing. He also taught us lots about improving our technique and how you would catch waves on the sea. Despite being a physical activity, we found the paddle boarding through the mangroves to be really calming and peaceful.

After some paddle boarding Mauricio gave us a lesson on free diving (which he is very enthusiastic about!) and we snorkelled around the Cenote where we saw some fish, crabs and Pancho the famous crocodile that lives in the Cenote. Mauricio took us through a mangrove tunnel and also to a secret cave which I we would not have found without him.

Mauricio also took some great photos of us paddle boarding and snorkelling and we had free time to paddle and snorkel until we were finished.

At the end of the experience, we went to a delicious taco shop stocked with a variety of traditional flavours. Mauricio gave us some recommendations of what to try too!

If you’re going to book this, we would definitely recommend going as early as possible. By 10am there were quite a few scuba and snorkel groups at the Cenote and it’s nice to have the whole place to yourself.

Thank you so much for this great review!! It was a pleasure to show you this beautifull cenote and Panchita the crocodile. I am glad you get to see her because now she left the cenote, we are not sure if she will come back, maybe she find a boyfriend on a different cenote ;-) Have a great day. Mauricio.

If you’re considering this activity, I highly recommend booking! Mauricio is very knowledgeable about the area, cenotes, and the best tacos in town!

Our tour started off by meeting in-town at 8AM. We were one of the first people to arrive at the cenote, and pretty much had it all to ourselves which made paddle boarding that much easier since we didn’t have to lookout for other snorkelers. After exploring the cenote on paddleboard, we got into the water, snorkeled, swam under mangroves, and Mauricio gave us a crash course on free diving breathing techniques.

I would recommend this to people who are comfortable in the water and can easily tread water.

The whole time Mauricio was taking pictures and captured a bunch of great shots of us and what we saw that day.

After we built up an appetite, Mauricio took us to an EXCELLENT taco shop in town, making recommendations on what we should get and on what else we should do while in Tulum.

The whole excursion took maybe 4 hours, so we still had the whole afternoon to relax on the beach!

Thanks again Mauricio!!

A really cool experience in Tulum. I loved learning to paddleboard and experiencing the cenote. Diving in the mangroves was also a really unique and cool experience. We got there early in the morning and had the entire place to ourselves. Rocio is a fantastic guide and was super encouraging as we made our way around the cenote. We finished up at a taco place that he said was the best taco place in Tulum - and I totally agree - they were the best tacos we had in Tulum or Mexico City. I'd highly recommend this unique and fun experience.

My wife and I loved our SUP tour with Mauricio. Stand up paddling boarding (SUP) is something we do in every country we visit and Mexican Caribbean Kitesurf & Paddlesurf exceeded our expectations.

Mauricio was super friendly, informative and a great addition to our crew. He taught us new sup and freediving techniques we can take back home with us.

After the paddle/snorkel we went to an amazing local taco restaurant which my wife and I absolutely loved - still talking about how they were the best tacos we had all trip.

Would recommend their services to anyone - family's, couples, kids, etc. they can handle it all.

Next trip to Tulum I'll definitely be using them for the sup tour and will try kiteboarding too.

I can't say enough good things about this tour! Mauricio was a fantastic guide and instructor, and the cenote itself was so unique and beautiful. The tacos after were also excellent. We enjoyed the experience so much that we actually ended up booking a surfing lesson with him a few days later as well. Highly, highly recommend to anyone visiting the Tulum area!

We were lucky to have seen Mauricio and his team shredding on kite-surf boards on the beach at Ahua Tulum. We rented surf boards, got a foil surf lesson, then went for a 1/2 day snorkeling trip in Solomon Bay.

He was prompt, thoughtful, and truly knows the local area and history. We were the only people in the bay and had the best snorkeling adventure! After a full morning of amazing sea creatures, we SUP’d to the beach where he had cold beers and delicious fresh ceviche waiting for us. When the day was done, he sent us links to photos and videos he took during our experience.

He became a local guide to the rest of our stay, and made our vacation that much better. We’re back now in October and plan to do it again!

Me and my husband did the SUP and snorkel tour in casa cenote with Mauricio and one other guest. We had never tried SUP before. This is such a great way to learn paddleboarding! Worth noting is that it is forbidden to wear sunscreen in the cenote, but Mauricio brought rash guards that we coul borrow. Mauricio taught us all the basics and was a great teacher, he made sure that everyone was comfortable on the paddleboard and in the water. He took us snorkeling under the mangroves which was so beautiful, he once again made sure that everyone was comfortable since we all didn't have the same snorkeling experience and skill. He also showed me and my husband some more advanced places for short free dives since we are both very comfortable in the water. When he went back to the car to start packing up, he told us that we could take our time snorkeling or paddleboarding some more, so we paddled through the cenote on our own, trying out our new skills. After the tour Mauricio took us to a local taqueria where we ate as many tacos as we wanted.

This was without a doubt one of our best experience on our trip to Mexico. 🤩

We had the most incredible time on a stand-up paddleboarding tour with Mauricio. He took me and my 3 friends to Casa Cenote to SUP, which was such a unique experience and environment. We even got to see a crocodile!! Mauricio is super fun and outgoing, and very knowledgeable about cenotes and Mayan culture. He taught us some new paddleboarding techniques and we did a fun circuit afterwards to test our skills. He also taught us a bit about freediving and 2 of us loved it so much that we signed up for a freediving certification course for next weekend! Would HIGHLY recommend doing a SUP tour with Mauricio when you're in Tulum, it was one of the highlights of our trip :)

Mauricio and his SUP tour were a highlight of my month long trip to Tulum. We headed out to a stunning and quiet bay just outside of Tulum that was home to a beautiful reef filled with fish. We even saw a manta ray and Mauricio was nice enough to grab a video of it swimming for us to have as a keepsake from the trip.

Mauricio was a great host, guide, and just in general a great person to spend the morning with. He answered any questions we had and was super fun to be around.

I also want to mention that the tour felt so personalized. You definitely won't get that with the big company tours that are also offered in the area, so I always recommend people to go with locals like Mauricio if you do any sort of tours.

Go with Mauricio and his team, you won't regret it!

We had the most amazing time with MCK. We actually took the Cenote tour as well as the lagoon tour and WOW we are so happy that we decided to do both. Helio was so kind and really knew how to capture some memorable moments for us to look back on. Everything went so smooth and was an experience that was unlike any I’ve had before. It was so fun going into town after for tacos too! We are quite the foodies and these tacos were delicious. It was great seeing such culture all around us and having time to soak that all up. We will definitely be back next year!!
