We did this trip right after going to some ruins, so the water in the Cenote was quite refreshing. The teenagers and I had a blast rappelling down into the cenote while others took the stairs down, once inside you can swim and jump off some platforms at 2 different heights, they also had some tubes that you can float...

The best tour guide and driver ever, Martin and Ricky! Loved the Cenote Maya and learning abt the Mayan Culture. Martin was very knowledgeable and informative abt the culture and the surrounding areas. We were blessed and granted permission to enter the ruins and the cenote by the Mayan priest. The traditional Mayan food was great as well. I loved... More

We went on the Cenote Maya tour with Debby and it was amazing. She was very knowledgable and very happy to answer any questions, she's studying archeology. We have been to Tulum (several times) and Coba and other smaller ruins and this was one of the best. Tulum is awesome by the sea but this has many more intact buildings... More

We took Altournative Tour for an excursion from Grand Sunset Princess to Ek Balam and Cenote Maya. Our guide was Tita. She was extremely knowledgable and so friendly. She actually got our 10 year old daughter to rapel into the Cenote. We highly recommend this excursion. We cannot praise the Cenote, the people of the Mayan Village, the amazing authentic... More

It's not the first time we visit this park, but we'll never get tired of doing so, due to it's so beautiful, you always enjoy it as the first time. Actually, this time the park is better because the organic orchard they're developing in the facilities now has new plants and animals as the hairless yucatecan pig and the melipona... More

Beautiful, natural and surreal place to visit. Personally, my favorite place in the world. If you want to experience Mexico and the local Mayan culture in a friendly safe place, you need to see Cenote Maya. Have visited twice; once via Alltournative Tours, which was super informative and fun, and took the local roads through Chemax. Tour guide was great.... More

We visited this Cenote on the return trip from our outing to Chichen Itza , the coolness of the place was very appreciated after a day of sight seeing in the sun. Our guide gave much information on the geological and historical points of Cenotes in general and this one in particular. It was quite interesting to take a walk... More

I don't know where to begin. Found this day long excursion from the lobby at the resort we were staying at. Noticed the photo of Cenote Maya on a brochure matched a photo that a coworker had shown me previously to my trip. The excusion came highly recommended although the brochure sold us on the trip itself! After getting picked... More

We did the combined tour of Ek Balam and Cenote Maya with AllTourNative Tours and it was one of the best tourist excursions I've ever been on. Being down in that cenote is one of the most incredible places I've ever been - even without the rappelling, zip lining, diving, etc., which are also a lot of fun. It's so... More
