We booked 3 trips with Go Natural via Best Day at our resort.
First we explored the Tulum Ruins; we spent an hour there with the guide Carlos who brought the civilization and culture to life for us. We were then given an hour of free time to explore on our own. Upon returning to the bus, Jesus and the driver Isreal outfitted us with snorkelling gear and we were off to Akumel where we swam with sea-turtles, stingrays and lots of brightly colored fish; we even saw a barracuda. a 1.5 hour lunch break followed, then we were returned to our resorts.
Our second trip was with the guide Carlos Moo to swim in a cenote, do a little shopping at a roadside store, then we toured Chichen Itza. I highly reccommend this site, it is amazing! Carlos was a fountain of information, jokes, stories, and a general all around great guy! After 3 hours touring these ruins we had lunch at the old hacienda at Chichen Itza and really enjoyed the local cuisine. On the way back to our resorts we were given 1 hour to explore the village center at a "typical" Mexican community. From Tulum this is an all day trip, but well worth it.
Our last trip was a complimentary shopping excursion. You get this one as a thank you for booking trips through Best Day. I am not sure it was with Go Natural, but I will say that if you are offered it ... GO! First stop is the jewelry factory/outlet called Lapis. You don't have to buy anything, but we did. The next stop is the shopping district found on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. THAT was a real experience that both of us enjoyed greatly!
Go Natural transported us on all excursions in a Toyota or Nissan van, there was never more than 10 people (excluding guide and driver) which made for very intimate groupings and allowed personal service. Each of the guides took time to interact with each participant and made these outings very memorable for my wife and I. The next time we are in this area we will speciffically look them up for our adventures!
