What to expect
Cenotes are great, but they're even better when nobody is there and you can enjoy it 100% by yourself! Pick up time is between 8 and 8 15 am at your hotel or rendezvous spot. Approximate arrival time to first cenote: 8 45 Once we put on the wetsuits and take the lights and lifejackets, it is time to explore! The first 30% of the cave is to build confidence, walking and enjoy the great view. Afterwards, your guide will take you through the remaining 70% of the cave, getting up a notch the adrenaline rush by going through partially flooded tunnels leading to hidden chambers and glorious stalagtite formations only a few have the courage to visit, making a total swim time of 1 hour and 20 min. Approximate exit time: 10:30 am After the first cenote experience you can have a fruit and / or cookies to recover some energy and go to the next one, which is totally different: open, colorful and full of life. After 20 minutes of swimming, your guide will take you by car to yet another cenote; a magical mangle with underwater clouds and utter silence! Approximate finish time: 12:30 pm Finally, we will enjoy a completely traditional mexican meal. Approximate finish time: 2:00 pm

Amazing Cenotes Introduction Snorkeling and Diving!
Jul 2021
Smiling Tulum is the absolute best option for diving and snorkeling anywhere in the Quintana Roo, Mexico area, especially in Tulum! They have multiple excursion options for snorkeling and diving both open water as well as cave and cavern diving/snorkeling the Cenotes.

Charly, our private tour guide, was super professional and knowledgeable, both of his craft, the landscape, the history, as well as the food and culture. He is a highly qualified diver who holds multiple certifications both in open water as well as cave/cavern, and more. Most importantly, he made our excursion super fun and personal!

Smiling Tulum is more than a diving excursion, they are a personalized tour group that makes you feel right at home, showing you all there is to see regarding the local culture and sights.

If you want a unique experience, choose Smiling Tulum!!! Thanks Charly!!!!!!!

Exceeded all of my expectations
Nov 2020
My experience with Julio and Charly was honestly one I will never forget. Not only were they the best instructors but they made the whole experience feel as if I have been doing it for years. Mind you this was my first time diving which can be a little intimidating but Smiling Tulum made the whole experience a breeze.

The whole experience exceeded my expectations from seeing crocodiles like Panchito to seeing all the wild life under the water.They also made the certifications process feel less like an exam and more like an amazing learning experience. All in all I would recommend Smiling Tulum to friends, family, and anyone else out there looking for a company to dive with. You will not regret cave diving in Cenotes, this is a must on anyones bucket list! I honestly cannot wait to go back and continue my diving adventures.

Thank you for such a special day.
Apr 2021
My wife and I booked a cenotes tour with Smiling Tulum in April 2021, and we had an incredible time. The prices were competitive and our tour guide, Iver, made it such a special trip. The whole experience was so personalized, and it was by far the best tour/experience we had on our trip. I am thrilled by the opportunity to shout out this company!

Beyond all expectations!!
Mar 2021 • Couples
After exhaustive research, I decided to book with Carlos (Charlie), and he gave us the experience of a lifetime!! My partner was a first time snorkeler, and has come anxiety with closed spaces, so he was very nervous. But carlos was so disarming, relaxed, and encouraging without being pushy, that my partner was able to fully enjoy the experience. Carlos is a true expert, but in the most casual and charming way that we never felt like he was lecturing us—more like a great storyteller who felt more like a friend than a guide. We have already decided that we will ask him to take us on another tour when we return next year. Highly recommend—you will thank me!

Best part of our trip! We loved Julio
Jan 2021 • Couples
This was our favorite part of our trip to tulum. Julio picked us up at our resort and showed us an incredible time. He was extremely nice and did a great job of explaining the history of the cenotes. We were referred smiling tulum by someone at our resort and we couldn’t have been happier. If you are looking for a excursion to the cenote, look no further than here! It’s worth every penny!!

Also, Julio loves taking pictures so he got some great ones of my girlfriend and I. She was LOVING IT. Thanks for a great day Julio

Breathtaking and the only way to see the Cenotes
Jul 2020
This was the most amazing experience I have ever had. To see such a delicate and beautiful ecosystem with such knowledgeable, kind, and experienced guides should be the only way to do this. When going into an ecosystem like this having clear instruction is very important. Felt safe in tight spaces (which normally would have made me uncomfortable) and informed about how to behave going into the Cenotes. All of which should be very important, all accomplished perfectly by our guides. No fear and was able to let the experience/spirituality of the place sink in. The company was clear and lovely to work with from an operational standpoint as well. From education to food to safety, we were covered with Smiling Tulum. Small trustworthy group of people who genuinely love the Cenotes. 100% recommend them for anything they offer.

Amazing experience and by far the best way to experience the Cenotes
Dec 2019
Jorge was a fantastic, informative, fun and considerate guide four our group of four. He was extremely knowledgeable on how to give us the best experience possible, without the crowds and kept us feeling safe the entire time. COmmunication from the company was precise and clear throughout the entire experience. This was by far the highlight of my trip to Tulum. Would recommend Smiling and Jorge to anyone looking to experience the Cenotes the best and most memorable way possible.

A wonderful experience and recommend 100%
We did the snorkeling in the cenotes with Charlie. He was extremely professional, and we had great fun at the same time. My wife and another friend were not as comfortable swimming but Charlie took great care in ensuring that they were comfortable in the water.

The cenotes that we visited were incredible and we finished off with zip lining over one at the end of our trip. An amazing experience and definitely recommend Smiling Tulum for those who visit the area!

The best way to visit cenotes!
Carlos (Charly) gave us such an incredible tour of three of the five types of cenotes ( which I wouldn't have known about, either). Our first cenote gave us an extensive tour through one of the cave systems. WOW it's all I can say and I know if we had just visited on our own we never would have had this experience. This has to be one of the most incredible experiences in my life and I've done some cool stuff. We then busted Nicte Ha which was so beautiful with all of the plant life. Last, we went to Jaguar cenote and swam around and into the mangrove. Incredible. Carlos was sweet, funny, and educational. W wrapped up with an unexpected zip line and then some yummy tacos. Don't do a cenote on your own, you'll miss so much!!! And Carlos is the best!

I would definitely recommend Smiling Tulum. I learned and enjoy 100% each cenote we visit. Charly's experience and knowledge about every cenote and mayan history was simple delightful. Highly recommended!!
