    What to Expect
    The most important attractions of Cancun and the Riviera Maya are, in addition to its charming beaches, the mystical underground rivers that extend through the subsoil of the Yucatan Peninsula. Take advantage of the maximum visibility of the crystalline waters of these natural formations and live a great adventure in the heart of the Underwater World.

    This marvelous half-day excursion will take you explore the jungle trails leading to a beautiful Mayan cenote, a natural well of fresh and crystal clear water where you can swim surrounded by mangroves and amazing ancient rock formations.

    Continue your journey like a real explorer, bound for the sea, and admire the diversity of marine life that inhabits the region of the famous Mesoamerican reef with an unforgettable snorkeling adventure. Look closely and perhaps you’ll happen to see huge sea turtles feeding placidly in their natural habitat!
