Our driver was Luis and our guide was Rosendo. We went during Sept. 2017 as part of my brother's destination wedding celebration. They picked our group of 15 up at our hotel at 8am and had an ice chest that we filled with water and beer from the hotel. We went to the ruins first and it was an amazing and quite educational tour led by Rosendo. Rosendo is Mayan which made the whole experience much more meaningful. We then stopped and shopped a while at the entrance of the park and then loaded back on the bus to go to Tankah Park. This is nothing like Xcadet. The park is run by a family of Mayans that cook for you at the end of the day. You are greeted with water and fresh fruit as soon as you get off the bus. They offer goggle/snorkels for $5. Then you follow a dirt trail loop that has 4 cenotes, each with a unique aspect. The first is a small zip line that you can fall into the water from. The second one is called Piranha because it has a lot of small fish that try and nibble of the dead skin from your body(they are harmless and really don't bother you if your are swimming and moving). There is a low cave ceiling that covers part of it that a small number of bats inhabit. The next is the largest cenote that has the huge zipline across. There are also all kids of hammocks that you can rest in. The last cenote is called Blue and is beautiful. Each cenote has lockers and sitting areas. You are requires to shower before you enter the cenotes because they don't allow you to wear any chemicals on your body when swimming in the cenotes to keep it clean and in its natural state. I would advise that you bring a natural bug repellent because there are a lot of mosquitos. Also wear river shoes with thick soles as the dirt road is quite rocky. You will need your own towels as well. The last part of the tour is an out door lunch cooked by the village that was delicious! They served chicken and pork cooked over a wood fire, beans, rice, fresh veggies, home made tortillas, salsa, and guacamole. Such a great time!!! A quiet, rustic, and uncrowded change from Xcadet.
