This Cancun gift experience is a must-do if you want to see the best of the Yucatan peninsula. You’ll be conveniently picked up from your hotel and taken first of all to the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, perched dramatically on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea - perfect for memorable photo opportunities. This is one of the peninsula's best-preserved sites, and your guide will show you around key points of interest including the Temple of the Frescoes, all the time filling you in on Tulum’s past. You’ll stroll on a nearby beach before heading on to Rancho San Felipe, a small Mayan community where a local shaman will take you through a short purification ritual. Here you’ll share a delicious buffet lunch before continuing on.
In the afternoon, you’ll trek for a while through the jungle to reach Sac Actun (White Cave) and Nohoch Nah Chich (Giant Bird Cage). These are the second and third-largest cave systems in this area, and your guide will show you to the cenotes (natural sinkholes) where you can snorkel in wonderfully clear water, surrounded by amazing stalactites and stalagmites - don’t forget a swimsuit. Bringing the day to an adventurous conclusion, you’ll travel further into the jungle by 4x4 to a zipline circuit, splashing down eventually into another pool. Want to do something a little different in Cancun? You won’t get much better than this full-day excursion!
