Tour Xenotes

Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

General information

Description

Cenotes are natural sinkholes of cool water found throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. They are lost in the middle of the jungle and were regarded as mystical places by the ancient Mayan civilization. With the Xenotes Tour, you will get to know some of these natural beauties immersed in the Mayan jungle accompanied by a specialized guide.

Rappel down to the clear waters of Lu´um; the “Earth Xenote”, fly through the jungle at full speed on the exciting zip lines and enjoy an amazingly refreshing water-landing at Lik´; the “Wind Xenote”, swim and snorkel at Ha´; the “Water Xenote” and enjoy a fascinating kayak ride at the “Fire Xenote”; K´aak´. Or simply relax and swim in the refreshing waters while admiring the exuberant natural scenery.

Xenotes is part of a group committed with the environment that carries out actions for the sustainability of its tourism activities by carrying out awareness programs, programs for the protection of fauna and flora, and creating community centers, among other actions. One of their latest has been to reduce the use of single-use plastics in all their establishments. It is due to this and more that they have the EarthCheck Gold certification which, through scientific assessment, guarantees that the service provider manages and plans the resources used, innovates or maintains social responsibility and safeguards water.

Live a fantastic excursion and have a great time with your friends and family in the middle of the Mayan jungle!
