Tulum Xtreme Tour with Aventuras Mayas
I went in March to the Tulum Xtreme tour from Aventuras Mayas operator. In this tour you go to Tulum, enjoy zip lines, rappel, snorkel, and underground rivers. This tour is an all day tour.
Tulum Site Visit.
You will start your day with a visit to the archaeological site of Tulum, where the group will know about the Mayan people and this spectacular site from the certified local guide.
Tulum is a great choice to visit if you want to know about the history of the Mayas, this place is a Pre-Columbian Mayan walled city, it was built on a cliff by the caribbean sea. From there, the Mayas could see all the boats approaching from any way. This site was the entrance port for the grand trade area that the Mayas had with the other groups. In war times, Tulum were the best point of surveillance.
The archaeological site of Tulum is very close to Playa del Carmen and Cancun, and the infrastructure to get to the site is very good, a big parking lot for the buses and cars, a commerce area with clean restrooms, small snacks places, souvenirs stores and even a Starbucks. There is a small transportation that will take you to the entrance of the wall, if you don’t want to walk this distance.
Inside the surrounding wall, where is the archaeological site there is no bathrooms or any market place so please before you go to this area, take your time to use the restrooms have a drink or wait until you return from visit the area.
Tulum Xtreme Tour: zip-line, rappel & snorkel
After we visit and enjoy Tulum, we were taken to Aventuras Mayas activities center, there, we enjoy the other part of the day doing a zip-line circuit, free rappel and snorkel in an under ground river that you have access by an open cenote or sinkhole.
The area is a natural reserve where you can enjoy from the nature all around, the people that is in charge of the area take a very good care of it, they do recycling, they use only local material and take care of the environment.
One thing that I really like was how they take care of the visitants, they have very good safety regulations and their equipment is in very good shape.
You can enjoy the extreme activities or if you chicken out from one (like I did with the rappel thing), you can wait for your group relaxing in an hammock or walking around taking great pictures of the jungle, the palapas and the coaties.
After the activities you will enjoy a local meal: grill chicken, black beans and rice, also they have spaghetti, nachos and mashed potatoes. And a salad bar with guacamole!!! corn tortillas and salsas.
Have you been in a Pirate Boat?
If you visit Cancun, you will have the opportunity of enjoy a fun tour in the ocean. Dinner, pirate show, music, drinks and the breeze of the sea, all in the same night.
There are different pirate ships and several shows, we are sure you will find best for you and your friends or family and most of the programs are set to be enjoyed for all ages.
In my last trip to Cancun, I went with my friend and her 6 years old daughter to the Jolly Roger Pirate Boat, and it was awesome. We spend a really good time laughing, dancing and the dinner it was really good.
Jelly Roger Pirate Boat Cancun, the fun start as soon as we arrive to the check in area at the dock. There where pirates everywhere, laughing, drinking and fighting, exactly as a pirate boat should be right?
The boat or ship, in fact is Spanish the correct word is “galeon” and is a beautiful Spanish style galleon is made by wood, have skulls everywhere and just to ride in the ocean in it is a real pleasure. The tour start at the sunset, you can see how the boat left the dock and start going in to the open sea.
And then, the show start, pirates singing, ladies pirate offering drinks and you start forgetting everything and start enjoying the moment. The kids paying attention to every action around them, sometime holding mom’s hand for a little security, and we, the adults, start to follow the fantasy and became pirates.
They invite you to be part of the show so you will fight, you will take team with the bad pirates or the good pirates, you will send your kids to look for treasures.
Kids are Free.
I almost forgot! One kid per adult is free. For them a kid is from 5 to 11 years.
The food and the drink.
You can select your main dish: chicken, fish, steak or lobster (I’m not really sure if they offer lobster) and with your meat you can select in a buffet station: green salad, mash potatoes, carrots, peas, corn, rice and spaghetti. For the kids they offer hot-dogs or chicken nuggets and french potatoes or spaghetti.
Since you arrive to the boat you can enjoy an open bar, but at the dinner time they offer your soft drinks, water or wine.
Its not a fancy tour is a really fun and family tour where you will be jumping and dancing with your kids or your friends or if you go alone with the people that is sitting beside you, you will be sitting in a bench during the show, you will be in the ocean in the night so you will be bouncing around a little bit so flat shoes and comfy clothes is a good idea.
In order to enjoy this tour, you need to go to “El Embarcadero” dock, that is at the Cancun hotel zone. Most of the tour operators offer ground transportation included with the tour but if you need to arrive by yourself, you can take a public bus, a taxi from your hotel, or if you are renting a car during your vacations there is a parking lot there. (you need to pay for the parking)
