Incredibly informative and friendly, Antonio and Jessica made is feel at home immediately and then took us to see some of the most beautiful and amazing sights of my life. A refreshing difference from the usual tourist guides, Yucatan Outdoors were honest, informative, helpful and fun.
Will definitely be booking anther tour on our next visit.

Let me just start by saying that we did not just have a guide for our adventure, we met a new friend in Antonio, who took true joy in showing us this beautiful region and sharing his wealth of knowledge. Our day exceeded our expectations in every way.

My family and I traveled to Tulum for, what for us would be a one and only chance at a big, international vacation as a family. We like to get away from crowds and explore the areas we visit. We did a lot of research before we traveled and it seemed there were no real options to get away from it all. All we were finding were the big touristy excursions. Then we found Yucatan Outdoors.

Our day included Kayaking on a laguna that is owned by the local community (we were alone on the laguna), snorkeling in different cenotes along the Sac Actun underground river system, and finally, snorkeling on a section of the reef that is reachable right from the beach. By the end of the day, we were in complete awe of the things we saw. And, in the best measure of what is a good day of adventuring, were completely exhausted.

The next time we get down to Tulum, we are biking the Yucatan with Antonio!

Muchas gracias, mi amigo!

Antonion took me, my wife, and my children (12, 15, and 17) on a day long trip around "paradise," as he says.

First, we kayaked in the early morning on a laguna, with Antonio gently sharing his deep understanding of the ecosystem while we paddled. We learned about the interconnection of the lagoons, beaches, cenotes, and reefs, and about many of the birds and plants in the area.

Next, we went to Casa Cenote and snorkeled. This cenote, right by the beach, has more fish than most, which was great. Plus, it's long and intriguing. All cenotes are different, and Antonio stressed this by taking us to Nicte Ha at the end of the day, which is amazingly beautiful with an overhanging cavern and floating water lillies.

The other stop was snorkeling on a reef, which was also beautiful.

The best part is Antonio himself: calm, warm, knowledgeable, flexible... just a great guide to paradise, with a definitely eco-sustainability bent to his rhetoric (good for me).

Our food for the trip was included, and was another plus. Fresh fruits, nuts, interesting local snacks, and then a lunch that was delicious and fulfilling without being filling, letting us keep right on going.

Antonio and Jessica were so nice and passionate about what they do! My wife and I went to Tulum for our honeymoon, and spent one day exploring with them, which ended up being the best day of our week there. We originally planned to kayak in the Sian Ka'an Reserve, but on the day we were going to head there, the roads were flooded, and it was inaccessible. We were worried momentarily that we would have to just cancel for that day, but Antonio and Jessica were prepared with a day full of other places to explore, and gave us the choice of what to do, instead. We took their recommendations on where to go, and ended up snorkeling in 2 different types of Cenotes, and on a reef. During the whole day, they taught us about all the wildlife, the formation of the Cenotes, and local history that we otherwise wouldn't have learned. Then to end the day, they gave us a fantastic homemade dinner.

Antonio and Jessica are very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun people to explore Mexico with. It is obvious that they are very passionate about taking care of the natural beauty of Mexico, and they really enjoy educating people and sharing their enthusiasm for nature.

Both Antonio and Jessica were the most amazing tour guides for the day.
The not only took us to the most amazing locations for our snorkeling trips, but they gave us the best food at every stop !!! Lunch, snacks and drinks were amazing

Next time i will set aside at least 3 days to do 3 kinds of different tours with these guys. They are the best. They not only are the best tour guides but educate you along the way and also care about the environment ( which most companies do not )

I wouldnt go with any other company than Yucatan Outdoors for any kind of tour !!!

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST !!!!!!!! Cant wait to come back and explore more :)
