Discover the variety of caverns, underground rivers & open sinkholes that fill the Mayan forest around Tulum. Considered by the ancients as portals into the underworld, the cenotes are on of the major attractions of the region. This tour takes you to the most enigmatic cenotes of the area: Grand Cenote, Escondido and Cenote Cristal.

Filled with history and mystery, these fascinating spaces are home to the ancient remains of humans and animals going back to the Ice Age, as well as amazing rock formations, sections of underground rivers and the clearest water you are likely to swim in, ever! We will explore 3 different cenotes, each very different from the other, allowing you to get a feel for the variety that exist (there are thousands) and ride some great local trails on MTB.

Starting from downtown Tulum, we ride out to Grand Cenote, one of the most famous cenotes in the area for its amazing combination of cave, underground river, open sections and resident wildlife turtles. This is great spot for some cenote snorkeling, and even though it is well known, we make sure to get  there early before the crowds arrive to fully appreciate the beauty.

We then hit 4km of forest trail taking us around Tulum, where we get away from the roads and into the trees. This is highly enjoyable with no traffic and the possibility of seeing some jungle wildlife if we get lucky. We will stop on this trail to enjoy a homemade brunch in an exclusive jungle oasis: a little guesthouse hidden away in the peace of nature, where we are served fresh fruit, coffee, gourmet sandwiches and juice in a beautiful & tranquil environment.

After brunch & time to relax, the trail brings us out to Cenote Cristal, an open cenote surrounded by lush vegetation, where there is a perfectly placed platform for jumps & you can usually spot divers entering the cave system into the flooded Underworld.

From here it is a short trip to Escondido, a quiet cenote that is great for snorkeling, full of fish and underwater vegetation, plus a couple of hidden caves for the more adventurous. 

Led by expert guides, this is a great means to have an active adventure around Tulum, stopping to swim, snorkel and have a whole lot of fun while riding quality bikes through the jungle. You will also learn a lot about the local environment and how the cenotes formed, as well as their importance throughout the millenia to all the residents of the Yucatan peninsula.
