Going to the the Riviera Maya this year 2013 was actually not what we had originally planned.We were going to Egypt originally but after that was cancelled we quickly booked last minute to Mexico.Well i'm so glad we did.The Riviera Maya is a beautifull coastline and we thought the Seaside Suites were fabulous.Beach,food,service and the surrounds were just dreamy.Before we went i hurriedly did some research on the area and things to do and found some great reports on a company called Riviera Adventours.I contacted them by email after looking through their web site and found them very helpfull.We chose two tours,an adventure day taking in Kayaking,Zip lining,Cenote swimming,Cave snorkeling,Lagoon snorkeling and a visit to the Tulum ruins.This was all one day with a stop for lunch at the owners resturant all included.The second trip we did was to swim at sea with the Whale sharks which was also a full day with lunch provided.I can honestly say that both trips were fantastic and a great way to see what that this coast has to offer.The company has wonderfull friendly and fun staff and all trips are on a small group basis so you get very good personal service.I admit at first i was a bit concerned about sending deposits so far away without knowing anyone but let me say that all the organisation was very smooth with efficient pick ups from the complex and plenty of of pre travel contact to let you know exactly what was going on.The price was good too considering what you get,much better than larger companies. I would recomend this company to anyone if you want to see more of this coast and also the seaside suites as a base.
Many thanks to Virginia,Oscar,Lisa,Yuri and all the staff including the happy friendly drivers we had for making it such a wonderfull trip,
Andy & Louise.

We loved every single minute of this trip! We did the snorkeling with Tulum added. Francisco was an awesome guide; courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and very patient, which is good since we don't always know what we are doing. The sea turtles were beautiful, and it was just our group of 4 with Francisco. Six was early but so worth it to not have a ton of otherwise people around. Next was Tulum was was also amazing, Francisco couldn't go in because of some silly rule but we enjoyed it anyway plus he had given us excellent instructions before we went in. Next was a cenote with a bat cave, absolutely amazing! Again, Francisco took care of us. Then lunch at Oscar & Lalos which accomodated my shrimp allergy and served is wonderful food then on to spend Christmas time with Lala they spider monkey who was so sweet. Lastly, snorkeling at the Yal-ku that we enjoyed also, fresh water meeting salt water. I can't say enough about this trip. Jorge the driver was always in the van with our belongings so we didn't have to worry. There were plenty of food and snacks for the day too.
I would recommend this company to everyone! We just got home and already are thinking about what we want to do with them next year.

We booked the extreme tulum package of visiting the Tulum ruins, snorkelling, zip wire and kayaking. Lisa and Jorge enhanced our seamless booking procedure by being the perfect guide and driver for the day. We were highly delighted to be the only people on the tour - standard practice for this firm! Our family of 4 had an unforgettable day seeing all sides of Mexico. Even torrential rain during the zip wire and kayaking session failed to dampen our total enjoyment of the day. The icing on the cake being the end our tour meal and the antics of Laya, the affectionate spider monkey. If you want individual attention and extreme value for money then book with these guys. If you don't then book with your tour company!!

We took 3 trips with Riviera Adventours, the Sian Ka'an trip with Yuri and Jorge, the Tulum Extreme trip with Lisa and Jorge and the Chichen Itza trip with Francisco and Jorge. Each trip was packed full of activities and made the most of the time we had available. All of the tour guides were brilliant and very respectful of the environments we went to. These tours made our honeymoon, we were able to swim with turtles, see amazing ruins, be adventurous swimming in lots of different cenotes and float down a Mayan canal. I would recommend this company to book your tours with, because the group sizes are so small (two of our trips were just us!). We met Virginia, the owner, on each of our trips, she was lovely. She was very welcoming. There was PLENTY of food and drink available throughout the day and it was all really good.

My Husband and I booked the snorkeling tour. Picked up by Yuri our tour guide, he took us on an amazing adventure! It was a smaller group and Yuri made it feel like we where on a trip with a very knowledgeable best friend. This tour has it down. With an early pick up time you beat the rush. As we snorkeled with sea turtles it was just us five. We saw a turtle every five seconds. Latter passing by that area was so packed you wouldn't be able to see much. Yuri's snorkeling tour made our honeymoon! We had so much fun that we booked the tour he was guiding the very next day for the tulum ruins. Again not disappointed. After your tour is fully completed you get to meet Virginia the owner. She is the sweetest person you'll find in Mexico. Making sure she gives everyone a hug before they go.
The food alone was by far the best fish we have EVER had and well worth the price of the tour alone. After an amazing meal you get to meet Virginia's daughter! A spider monkey named La la. She was truly in love with my husband. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JrE04qF1rto ) link to our video 98% is our amazing time with Yuri. We are only going back for our 1year because of our two day adventurous with RIVIERA ADVENTOURS!
