Its not worth to visit riviera maya without exploratours.. Miguel Castela knows really well the area and took us to amazing amazing places , at the best times (in order to avoid too much tourists).. I will return the 3rd time to playa del carmen with Exploratours

“Worth every penny! ”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We booked the cozumel Isla tour and snorkel and we are glad we did. First they pick you up in an old army crew truck and tour around, Open air and covered to shade from Sun. You get to see old Mayan ruins and the way they could tell if hurricanes were coming which was really neat as they said it warned them of Katrina. Then you get to see the light house from all the Corona commercials which is such a cool place. The view is worth the price of admission alone. Lots of stairs and it's kind of steep but once your up there wow. You also get to see a lagoon and they have a bunch of animals... Crocodiles are like a foot from you and are huge! It's very safe as you are on a boardwalk but you definitely get goosebumps. The snorkel part is the best I've ever done, you go off the beach onto the Belize reef which is second biggest in the world. Bring a waterproof camera trust me. Once you get back in your get to eat at the buffet... The food is better then any 5 star resort I'd put money on it. After you go out and see more beach such a nice peaceful trip

Miguel is the best! He organized 2 tours for me in May 2012, Chizen-Itza and Whale Shark, helped me with the transfers to the hotel and airport and also gave me great tips for what to visit! Try Exploratours! You won't regret!

“highlight of our trip”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Miguel was the best host. He was so knowledgeable and respectful about the culture and history and he was so helpful and patient. We had booked two tours with Exploratours - a half day swimming with turtles and visiting a cenote, and a full day visiting Tulum, the Mayan village, and Coba. Both trips were excellent. The swimming with turtles and cenote were the highlight for our family. Miguel put together a video of our turtle experience. I could not imagine a more enjoyable and interesting set of tours. Thanks Miguel!!
